"Blessed are the poor in spirit"
Shielded by the mists of merciful tenderness
We find ourselves in posession of vast and
awesome wealth intangible wealth, beyond all earthly recompense.
The great and glorious future that is ours
at such great cost to him,
Who loved enough to lay down his life for
The quiet still waters where he leads rise
And overflow from his heart, the spring of
The fountain of joy and love divine.
Priceless are the gifts he bestows on us his
children, heavenly and glorious gifts flow
Gently to our hearts
Unlocked are his arms to tenderly carry his
weary lambs along his road of peace,
Kindness and gratitude he shows in abundance
to those who love Him.
The weary find rest, the fearful a refuge
The broken-hearted find solace and are cherished
Sing praises to our God who waits to receive
Our many burdens, who waits with such inordinate
patience to effect our healing.
The sheer expression of his love is gloriously
Below the fathomless depths of ocean
Above and beyond the vault of the skies
Reaches your love my God.
O, how we need you my God,
O, how we need your love.
Bless our need.
is saying: Will you too go away? Are my sayings too hard for
you? Have I not said that I have come for the sinners and
not for the righteous. For the 'righteous' turn their noses
up at sinners, yet their own righteousness is as filthy rags.
Do not turn your noses up at those who I have come to save.
I came to search for the lost and for the hurting, for the
dying and for those who are needing a saviour. I have come
that those who are under the power of the devil may be set
free. Do you not know, have you not heard, that I am He that
loves the filthiest wretch and became the scum of the earth
so that those in the deepest of sin could be saved. Value
the lives of all men for my Father would have it that all
men be saved.
15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose
one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness,
and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
that we are saved is absolutely nothing to do with the degree
of our sin, nothing, nothing, nothing. The only reason that
you and I are saved and have eternal life rests only on one
thing..... the blood of Jesus was shed for the forgivenss
of our sins. As soon as we start to measure sin and compare
ourselves with others we have stepped from the real issue....and
we are putting our trust in our own goodness instead of on
the sacrifice of Jesus. The blood is sufficient not only for
our sin but for those whom society has put in the 'unforgiveable'
category, if they too will be reconciled.. ...It is the blood
that is on trial today. Is it sufficient to cover the 'worst'
of sins? Let us say a resounding "Yes and Amen"
for he came out and found us when we were in our worst state
and not our best.
5:6 -11 For when we were yet without strength, in due time
Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous
man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would
even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in
that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much
more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were
reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being
reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so,
but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom
we have now received the atonement.
2:2 , "He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for
ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."
9:13 But go ye and learn what [that] meaneth, I will have
mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.
2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are
whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick:
I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
