GREAT IS THE LORD

Great is The Lord!  Can any be greater?

Worthy of praise, cannot you see?

The rocks and trees would cry out to honor

If man will not stoop, bend the knee!

.

.

Maker of all space, the galaxies

Endless by Him contained!

Then made the man in His own image!

Beasts of the fields remain.

.

.

Man alone can boast everlasting!

Created to walk with God!

As Enoch who “walked with God, and was not,

“For God took him,” aloft!

.

.

Who else is perfect?  None of this earth.

Jesus, God’s Son, stands alone

Perfect Lamb of God, man’s sacrifice!

Who else could for sin atone?

.

.

At one with God, “Through the blood of the Lamb.”

As pictured in Old Testament days

That lamb representing the Lamb of God

Whose blood was spilt for our ways.

.

.

Our sinful ways, guilty!  Each one

Everyone sheer bound for hell!

Has Lucifer won?  No!  Jesus shed blood

Once applied can make all well!

.

.

Not an over simplification this!  For

“Without the shedding of blood

There is no remission for sin,” at all!

Give thanks for the crimson flood.

.

.

Truly flood it seemed for in days long past

Animals sacrificed.

Represented the sins of every nature all

Contained on that cross tree.

.

.

Contained at last blood of The Lamb!

The Lamb of God who took

Every sin making possible that

All we need do is look!

.

.

Look to The Lamb for cleansing from sin.

Appropriate!  This He has done!

Whatever fluid representing His blood

Completed for everyone!

.

.

This is the blood of Christ, God’s Son,

To cleanse from unrighteousness

And fit us for heaven!  All who partake!

As we, our sins, confess!

.

.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful

And just to forgive and cleanse…”

And “the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s

Son, cleanses us from all unrighteousness.”

DEATH TO LIFE

We rationalize or tend to customize

The not good things we do.

“That is not so bad” or “What is wrong with that?”

Oh please, get me out of this zoo!

.

.

“Whatsoever is not of faith,”

“Sin liath at the door!”

One little sin can lead to others!

Sin, does God not abhor?

.

.

Sin is why Christ had to die, you know.

Little or big, it is all sin!

Cannot customize the wrong we do!

It all comes from within!

.

.

The Devil made me do it,

We are so prone to blame

Anyone else but we ourselves!

Of course, I have done the same.

.

.

“Forgive us our trespasses,” Christ prayed,

Teaching us how to pray!

And “Father forgive me as I forgive…”

Is that not what I should say?

.

.

Dispense with all the finesse!  Do not need!

Just recall with humility!

God knows all the fancy words there are!

Just thank Him, do not forget please!

.

.

Please is begging and beggars we are!

In God’s pantry, the best place!

“Thank you!”  Is what I will say once I get home!

Thank you for Your saving grace!

.

.

He saved a thief on another cross,

Suppose He can save this one, too?

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful

And just to forgive,” it is true!

.

.

“Until death do us part” wedding vows claim!

In heaven not the same!

Our life starts with our death!

Is that not why Jesus came?
