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;

Ambassadors

We are ambassadors of peace and reconciliation,
A royal priesthood and a holy nation,
Born again, Christ’s new creation,
Built on His Word as the sure foundation.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV
[20] Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Pondering Illusion

As I ponder the path of my life,
I have come to a reasoned conclusion,
The thought that I control my own destiny,
Is fantasy and delusion.

For we all will meet our Maker one day,
No exception and no exclusion,
And If we live now like there is no God,
In the end He will shatter that illusion.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:10 NKJV

[10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

The Offer

I had nothing to offer
Jesus offered me all
He offered new life
I offered the Fall
He offered salvation
And I followed His call
Christ offered Himself
His blood the cure-all.

MT 2018

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

Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd watched from a distance,
While I grazed in the field of sin,
Till I finally came to my senses,
And cried out, “Lord Jesus, come in!’

The Good Shepherd who once stood afar,
Now guides my heart, mind and soul,
And I’m safe in His heavenly pasture land,
Restored, reconciled and made whole.

MT 2018

NKJV  Joh 10:11  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

The Reward

One day I will hear the welcoming voice,
Of the God who spoke all into being,
And my eyes will behold the King of kings,
When my faith is rewarded by seeing.

MT 2018

NKJV  2Co 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.
