Go and Do

Do you wonder who you are
or what you should do
if you are a Christian?
Do you wonder what His plan is
or what His will is
for your life?
The answer is clearly written
Clearly spelled out
In His word

You are the salt of the earth
The light of the world
The hope of nations
You are a child of the king
Adopted into God’s family
An heir of His blessing
You are a royal priest
A peculiar person
A chosen generation
You are washed in the blood
Redeemed by the Lamb
Unto good works

Your mission is to preach the gospel
Unto all the earth
Baptizing as you go
Heal the sick
Bring sight to the blind
Open the deaf ears and dumb mouths
Let your light shine
So all may see your good works
And glorify God
You are to be meek
poor in spirit
hungry and thirsty for righteousness
Peacemakers
Mournful over sin
Reapers of the harvest
You are to speak
words of edification
That will minister grace
You are to show
love to your enemy
joy in the midst of trials
You are to forgive
all who may wrong you
and not be offended
You are to love
without hypocrisy
unconditionally
You are to bear all things
Believe all things
Hope all things
Endure all things
You are not to be proud
Or backbiters
Or gossipers
You are to be pure just
‘ Honest and true
Virtuous and full of praise

All of these things and many more
Are found in His word
A letter of love to you
If you’re looking for your purpose
It is already written
Now Go and Do!

The Believers Life

You’re Beautiful, Lord

You’re beautiful, Lord
My eyes behold your glory in the heavens
My lips sing your praise on the earth
My ears long to hear your still, small voice
I smell the fragrance of the afternoon rains and I rejoice
My feet are swift to run to you
My arms reach out to embrace you
You’re beautiful, Lord

You’re wonderful, Lord
You paid the price for my sin
You took the stripes for my healing
You were nailed to a cross to set me free
Your blood was spilled to cleanse my mind
You rose again to give me eternal life
You are coming back to take me home
You’re wonderful, Lord

I will lift up my voice and praise you’re sweet name
Jesus, King of Kings
Jesus, Lord of Lords
Jesus, Lamb that was slain for me
Jesus, my redeemer
Jesus, My Savior
Jesus, forever He will be with me

Trust Him

Trust God!
What a concept we should follow.

Trust Him
in the midst of the battle,
in the height if the storm,
in the depths of the valley
and in my deepest sorrow.

Trust Him
when He does not answer,
when He seems far away,
when I don’t hear His voice
and when I feel lost and alone.

Trust Him
even if I am sick,
or poor,
or hungry
or thirsty,
even if my soul longs to be closer to Him
yet my flesh keeps me away.

Trust Him
when I can’t trust in myself,
my family,
my friends,
my neighbors,
my coworkers,
or even people in my church.

Trust Him.
Always trust Him!

Alive Again

Who am I Lord
A sinful man
Lost in my own ways
Trying to find a way
To make life right
To feel I’m worth something
To someone
Anyone
Does anyone see me
Or hear me
Or even care I’m alive
Here in this flesh
Walking down this road
The wide road
The wrong road
Lost
Confused
Shattered by life
Crying for help
Looking anywhere I can
Drugs are not the answer
Neither is alcohol
Sex is not even close
Money comforts
But does not bring peace
Power is exhilarating
But is fleeting and empty
Fame only lasts for a moment
Like a vapor in the wind
All of life’s pleasures
Bring no joy that lasts
But only sorrow
Heartache
Solitude
And I despair in my condition
I am not sure of the way out
I do not know where to go next
Everyone looks at me and sees success
They see happy
They see what I want them to see
But it’s only an image
A projection
Of the external man
Not the internal man
Oh, wretched man that I am
Who will save me
Who will rescue me

Then
In an instant
In an unanticipated moment
Jesus whispers into my ear
With words of peace
Words of joy
Words of a refuge
Safe in His arms
And I weep
My heart breaks
My spirit collapses
My mind is fixed
On His words
I cannot deny them
I cannot refuse them
So I ask Him to forgive me
For my sin
My arrogance
My wandering heart
My sinful ways
Surprisingly to me
He does
A wave of freedom flows over me
I can feel the filthiness leave
I can feel His Spirit enter in
There is no doubt
No way to undo
What he has just done
He has washed my win away
Like a tide washes the shore
Like the light dispels darkness

I am a new man
A new creation
Walking the narrow path
Walking with Him
Blessed by his Spirit
No longer alone
No longer in despair
But filled with joy
Peace
Hope and His love
Oh what a Savior
Jesus my Lord
Lamb of God
Wonder of wonders
He has done what I could not do
He has done what no one else could do
He has done what this world cannot d0
He changed my course
From hell to heaven
In the blink of an eye
I am saved
Forgiven
Washed by the blood
Redeemed from my sin
Forever forgiven
Alive again!
