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.”

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;

Entwined

Divinity and humanity,
Beautifully entwined,
God and Man,
Gracious and kind,
Descends from glory,
Lost souls to find,
With grace and by love,
Broken hearts He will bind.

MT 2019

Luke 19:10 NKJV
[10] for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Sowing

Many might think me less a man,
For the myriad tears I have shed,
But I remember my Savior-King,
Who wept at the tomb of the dead.

The world might think it weakness,
To cry out from the depths of the soul,
But I will continue to pour out my heart,
To the God who can cleanse and make whole.

MT 2019

NKJV Psa 126:5  Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Where?

Where does God hide the wind?
On a still and windless day.
And where does the darkness take refuge?
When the sunlight chases it away.

MT 2019

Job 38:19-20 NKJV

[19] “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, [20] That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

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.
