Faith Well Placed

Don’t put your faith
Don’t place your trust,
In a son of Adam
Whose end is dust,
Or in earthly treasures 
That corrode and rust,
Nor this broken world
With it’s lies and lust.

But put your hope
In Christ the King,
Who left His throne
To feel deaths sting,
And rose the third day
New life to bring,
And now reigns on high
Rejoice and sing!

MT 2019

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NKJV

[3] For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, [4] and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

Fullness

The wisdom and power of the Godhead,
God’s fullness in Christ the grand plan,
The Father sending His beloved Son,
So that Christ might redeem sinful man.

God knew the dark and painful cost,
The Holy One would have to bear,
Of piercing nails and scourging whip,
And the crown of thorns He would wear.

But His wounds were badges of honor,
For Christ bore them for you and me,
To show the depths His love would go,
To make us His for eternity.

MT 2019

Colossians 2:9 NKJV
[9] For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

Defuse

When rebuked or corrected
There are two paths to choose
One where we win
One where we lose
Admit fault and failure
Or cover up and excuse
And when we humbly receive it
Sin and pride will defuse.

MT 2018

NKJV  Rev 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

He Must Increase

It’s Him not me
Men need to see
For He not me
Died on the tree
And He not me
Reigns eternally
And He not me
Holds heaven’s key.

More of Him not me
Is my soul’s deep plea
More like Him not me
Is who I long to be
For He not me
Set this captive free
And He not me
Makes evil flee.

MT 2018

NKJV  John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

Faithful Keeper

The valley of the shadow of death
Is wide and dark and deep,
And the climb up the mountain of righteousness,
Is narrow, winding and steep,

But the Good Shepherd leads in both places,
For He loves and cares for His sheep,
And no matter what terrain or trials we face,
His lambs He will faithfully keep.

MT  2018

Ready?

Life has its ups
Life has its downs
Sometimes it smiles
Sometimes it frowns
One thing is certain
God’s grace abounds
May we be found ready
When the trumpet sounds

MT 2018

NKJV Luke 12:40  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Lion and Lamb

Only the Lion of Judah can slay,
The savage beast within,
And only the blood of the spotless Lamb,
Can save us from drowning in sin.

MT   2018
