12-31-14 You’ll Surely Know

Back of the Choir

bible study

To know beyond a doubt if you love God,

Observe your life and see the fruit you bear.

If you shun His commandments you’re a fraud;

How can you claim to love if you don’t care?

God’s moral laws are still in place today,

And done sincere in faith, His light shines through.

Look to the edicts Jesus did convey,

Your neighbor should you love, your brother, too.

You must love God with everything you’ve got,

And if you do believe Christ died for you,

Submit your life to Him as Spirit wrought;

A new man will emerge: you’ll know it’s true.

You’ll know that you know Him without a doubt

If you keep His commandments all throughout.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And hereby we do know that we know him,

if we keep his commandments

1 John 2:3 KJV

12-30-14 On Healing

Back of the Choir

jesus-sending-out-disciples-2-by-2

The world is groaning from the weight of sin,

And demons have grown bold and run berserk.

Disease, addiction, hate are thriving in

A perfect soup where unclean spirits lurk.

We are disciples of the living Lord,

So tasked to spread the gospel everywhere,

And when someone is saved in Christ restored,

Their demons are expelled with great despair.

With Jesus working through us He can purge

Whatever demons live within a soul.

Disease of every kind with faith are scourged;

One humble prayer brings health, the man made whole.

The power of Your blood, O Lord, is real!

Now in Your Holy name lead us to heal.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples,

he gave them poweragainst unclean spirits, to cast them out,

and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Matthew 10:1 KJV

12-29-14 With Just a Touch

Back of the Choir

Leper Healed with a Touch

If you believe that Jesus is your Lord,

Don’t hesitate to call upon His name.

You must let go your will, you must be floored;

Believe with all your heart He’ll cure your shame.

Be like the leper, fall upon your face:

The door to Heaven’s shaped like one in prayer.

You must surrender everything to grace;

Put all your faith in Christ, your soul laid bare.

Confess your sins to God; He will forgive.

God’s mercy heals contrite and broken hearts.

You must prepare to die before you live;

 When Jesus touches you, your sins depart.

O Lord, if it’s Your will, then make us clean.

Our sins keep us from You, please intervene!

~~~~~~~~~~~

12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city,

behold a man full of leprosy:

who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him,

saying, Lord, if thou wilt…

12-28-14 Give

Back of the Choir

burning log

If all we had to do was give in alms,

How easy it would be to give at all,

We could go down the line of upturned palms

Then spend the day just hanging at the mall.

But each of us are different in our heart;

We don’t all have the means in wealth to give,

So let us do our best and do our part

To help each other up so we can live.

If you give ten percent of what you earn

Unto the Lord, you’ve made your tithe today,

But kindling starts the fire – to make it burn

Use everything you’ve got without delay.

Considering what Jesus sacrificed,

We should give all we have: our all, like Christ.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, 

so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity:

for God loveth a cheerful giver.

giving

The hardest thing a man can learn to do

Is give what he has got unto the poor.

Forgotten is the time he was poor, too,

Now blinded by excess and wanting more.

That which he gives expecting nothing back

Is just like lending riches to the Lord.

The man who gives with love will never lack,

For God will see that he’s ten times restored.

He doesn’t have to wait until he’s asked;

If he is close to God he’ll see the need,

And if he only has two coins amassed,

The one he gives away’s a planted seed.

Have pity on the poor and those without,

For giving is what love is all about.

~~~~~~~~~~~

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD;

and that which he hath given will he pay him again.

Proverbs 19:17 KJV

12-26-14 Be First to Love

Back of the Choir

love each other

If God did love us so He sent His Son

To be a sacrifice for all our sins,

Then we should love each other barring none,

And those who understand it best begins,

For we should not just sit around and wait

Until the other fellow loves us first,

For that is just as bad as open hate.

All those who wait to drink will die of thirst.

God loves us so despite our wicked way;

Lord knows that we deserve eternal hell.

Begin to love your enemy today

If you should ever hope to Heaven dwell.

My friends, love one another without pause

By loving one another without cause.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Beloved, if God so loved us,

we ought also to love one another.

1 John 4:11 KJV

12-25-14 In the Midst

Back of the Choir

baby-jesus

He slipped into the world so quietly

That only shepherds in their fields were told,

And just a handful knew who He would be:

The one Messiah prophets had foretold.

Oh, how the earth itself did want to shout,

“The Savior’s here! Just look! He’s in our midst!”

The animals and plants could have cried out,

“The Lord of Lords is born! He does exist!”

Creation, though it strained to cheer with joy,

Was held in an abeyance purposely,

For evil men would then try to destroy

As Herod did when wise men sought to see.

O earth, be quiet, do not shout and tell.

O universe, that time will come as well.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion:

for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

Isaiah 12:6 KJV
