JUDAS, WAS HE SAVED?

Sure, we knew Judas as Jesus did.

Think He was fooled just a bit?

As treasurer, Judas, like, held the purse.

No, Christ was not fooled by it!

.

.

As a servant of sin he fooled no one!

Sure, loved money more than God!

When he threw that money at Pharisee’s feet,

Was it repentance in accord?

.

.

In accordance with true repentance,

Did he ever truly repent?

True repentance is followed by true hope,

As though receiving consent.

.

.

His spirit bears witness with yours when true!

We just know by faith forgiven!

We know, by faith, there is a place reserved

For this poor soul in heaven!

.

.

Great rejoicing!  We feel it inside!

Faith tells us so!

“Confess our sins…He is faithful and just

To forgive…” that sinner below!

.

.

God knows your heart, can you receive forgiveness?

.

SUCH A COST

Jesus, just the thought of You

Fills my heart with delight!

This world is no attraction now,

All I seek is Your light!

.

.

Your light, Lord, as revealed in Christ,

Light with brilliance that shines,

As I move in closer to You!

Savior, Redeemer, mine!

.

.

Had a vision, a glimpse of truth,

Savior’s face filled the sky.

Seemed far yet close and His presence

Dominated the eye!

.

.

Benevolence, loving kindness,

His eyes, His loving smile.

Seemed to grow brighter as He moved in,

Un-dimming all the while!

.

.

Gradually the face grew smaller!

Clarity was not lost!

The picture in His eyes I saw,

His death at such a cost!

.

.

Then that smile, such beauty there!

Brings joy forevermore!

Death is past, new life forever!

Eyes on that distant shore!

.

.

Kingdom of God,  in my heart!

Keeping my eyes on Him!

Near or far, He is always close by,

Brightness will never  d i m!

.

.

Sadness, times I may experience,

As eyes may drift away!

Following luster in fields afar,

Turn back that very day!

.

.

Return with tears, the sorrow real!

While I am still in the fold!

He has never withdrawn His love!

He is faithful who told…

“I will never leave nor forsake…”  Hebrews 13:5
