“Forever Love”

“Forever Love”

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?”

“Sanctification”

“Sanctification”

Sanctification is an ongoing and lifelong process
As the vestiges of this world the Spirit strips away
The sin that we hide; the thin veneer of our pride
Is exposed to the Light; as night is turned into day

The idols that captivate us; those beautiful illusions
Shatter as Truth’s Sword smashes them one by one
Taking their place is God’s Holiness and His grace
The masterpiece-to-be; a mirror image of God’s Son

II Corinthians 3:18 (NASB)
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

I Corinthians 15:49 (NASB) Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

Philippians 1:6 (NASB)
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
