Rest and Rely

While it may not be very popular,
And will cut to the heart as well,
I believe Christ died on a cross
To save us from sin, death and hell.
I also believe He rose from the grave,
And in glory now reigns on high,
That His word is eternal and absolute,
On these truths I can rest and rely.

MT – 2020

NKJV Act 2:37-38
[37] Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” [38]  Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

What If…

What if the diverse beauty we see,
Did not happen by random chance?
And the stars in this vast, grand universe,
Are a beautifully choreographed dance?

What if a Creator truly exists,
Who made you and knows your life story?
And died in the place of the human race,
And rose again to reveal His glory?

What if He offers an eternal choice,
That determines where you’ll live forever?
A place of unspeakable love and shalom,
Which nothing can lessen or sever.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 8:3-4

NKJV Psalm 8:3-When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 8:4  What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

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,

Gain

The Prince of Peace
Did not suffer in vain
He traded earthly pain
For Eternal gain
While the Lamb of God
On the cross was slain
Now Judah’s Lion
Has ascended to reign.

MT 2019

Revelation 5:5 NKJV
[5] But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

On Display

Precious beyond
All earthly compare
The blood my God shed
Saved man from despair
To release Satan’s prisoners
Who were held in cruel sway
At the cross won the victory
Ushered in a new day
One day lion with lamb
Will frolic and play
And a child will lead them
God’s shalom on display.

MT 2018

NKJV  Rom 16:20  And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Even Though

They scorned Him, mocked Him, called Him names,
And did not believe His works or claims,
As He raised the dead and gave sight to the blind,
And was merciful, gracious, good and kind,
Though they deemed Him deserving of a cruel death,
He forgave their hated with His dying breath,
For they knew not the gravity of what they had done,
By killing God’s precious and dearly loved Son,
But to all who draw near with a repentant heart,
He gives abundant mercy, and a brand-new start.

Mark Tinjum   2017

NKJV  1Pe 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

So…

He knew He would have to take,
Our wretchedness and sin,
Upon His sinless body,
So that we could enter in,
To His Father’s holy presence,
So He gave us day for night,
And let darkness fall upon Himself,
So that we could be clothed with His light.

Mark Tinjum   –   2016
