Wherever our treasure is, then there our hearts also will be
Wordliness brings bondage; our liberty in Christ sets us free
Compromise is the fool’s path; Truth is the way of the wise
Sin confounds its victims; God’s Word opens spiritual eyes
Pride is the height of arrogance; humility is a lesson learned
Great is His grace; His salvation, a gift that no one can earn
He is our Sanctuary, though trials and troubles upon us come
He is Jesus, our Forever Love when our time on earth is done
Hebrews 13:5-6 (NASB)
5 for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”
6 so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?”
As the sun rises, a brand new day dawns
We are held securely in the Master’s Hands
We cannot ever be separated from Him
We are kept safely in His sovereign plans
Darkness and light are both alike to Him
Nothing can conceal itself from His sight
Christ has clothed us in His righteousness
We are more than overcomers in His might
I John 5:4 (NASB)
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
To My Brethren; My Dear Family in Christ
May He fill your thoughts with His peace
May you take comfort in His loving arms
All your fears and anxieties in Him cease
May you rise up in His infinite strength
May He meet the longings of your heart
May He bestow His blessings upon you
Grace and goodness to you He imparts
As you travel with Him along this road
Though you can’t see around the bend
He’s your sufficiency in your weakness
He’ll uphold you right to the very end
Ephesians 1:18-19 (NASB)
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.
How immeasurable; the spiritual riches of God’s Word
Precious Gems of Grace; His Treasures to be explored
Designed to empower and to properly equip the saints
That they may walk in a manner pleasing to their Lord
The Spirit teaches them; quickens their understanding
In His power, they are strengthened daily from within
They will know the boundlessness of the love of Christ
He lives His life out in them; they are complete in Him
Romans 11:33 (NASB)
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
This world isn’t the same as it always has been
Glaring, prophetic warning signs are flashing
People remain oblivious; they laugh, they scoff
Until God’s judgment upon them comes crashing
Eternity isn’t a matter to be cavalierly dismissed
It carries consequences far too serious to ignore
The Bible states the road to destruction is wide
It offers only eternal regret and sorrow in store
There’s a road that’s narrow; at its end is Life
Those who take it expect times of trial and pain
Their Savior leads, guides, and comforts them
They know to live is Christ, and to die is gain
Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB)
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
14 “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Psalms 2:10-12 (NASB)
10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; Take warning, O judges of the earth.
11 Worship the Lord with reverence And rejoice with trembling.
12 Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
Think not upon passing cares of this earth
For there is a pursuit far beyond all worth
Treasures to be sought within His Word
Truths to be read, thought upon, heard
Obey and appreciate His will and ways
Give to Him your thanks, worship, praise
Let His Word flood your mind and heart
His atoning blood cleanses sin’s dark spot
Though once you were blind, now you see
The Face of Christ, your joy for all eternity
II Corinthians 4:6 (NASB)
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ
In His Word, God calls upon all people to repent
His love He did demonstrate in His Son He sent
Punishment for sin was poured out upon Christ
Redemption was provided through His sacrifice
Mercy and grace, a faith made active in the heart
Spiritual renewal, forgiveness; new life, fresh start
The righteous road traveled; the narrow path begun
Hand in hand with Jesus; an eternity with God’s Son
John 3:16-17 (NASB)
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
I Peter 3:18 (NASB)
For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit
Romans 5:8 (NASB)
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Grace and Truth; Mercy and Love
Poured out upon us by God above
In Jesus Christ, Joy of Life to live
Mighty Savior; faithful to forgive
Declared righteous; pure in Him
Delivered from the power of sin
Hope is reborn; a renewed heart
Alive in Christ; a brand new start
No cause to fear; not even in death
Forever in His arms; at final breath
II Corinthians 4:6 (NASB)
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
Romans 8:10 (NASB)
If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
