No Compare

 

The sufferings of
this present time
won’t be worthy
to compare

with the glory
revealed in us
through Jesus, our hope
our prayer.

**********

The glory of You with me far outweighs my sufferings.

**********

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Romans 8:18 NKJV

Freed

 

Jesus was raised
from the dead
by the glory of
the Father

so we can walk
in newness of life
freely
ever after.

**********

You are with me and free me from sin.

***********

“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

“For he who has died has been freed from sin.”

“Now if we died with Christ we believe that we shall also live with Him.”

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:4,7,8,23. NKJV

Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:1,2,8. NKJV

Called Into Existence

 

Humbled
in the presence

of the God
whom I believe

as He calls the things
which don’t exist

as though they do
indeed.

*********

You are with me and help me see what You see.

*********

“Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith, of Abraham. Who is the father of us all,”

“(as it is written, ‘I have made you a father of many nations’) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did “

Romans 4:16,17

My Propitiation

 

We all have sinned
and fallen short

yet You
have made a way

through the blood
of Jesus Christ

by faith
we all have grace.

*********

You are with me and are my propitiation.

*********

“. . .for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,”

“whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,”

“to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”

Romans 3:23,24,25,26 NKJV

The Goodness Of God

 

Circumcision is of
the heart and Spirit

not just according
to the flesh

for the goodness of God
leads us to repentance

and His praise is ever
on our lips.

**********

You are with me and lead me to repentance.

**********

“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

“For He is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”

Romans 2:4,28 NKJV

For His Name

 

With power
according to the Spirit

by His resurrection
from the grave

we receive grace
for obedience

to the faith and honor
of His name.

**********

You are with me and give me grace to obey.

**********

“Jesus Christ our Lord, declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.”

“Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ. “

Romans 1:4,5,6 NKJV

Good Wise

“For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.” Romans 16:19

I have seen the evil planned for me not come about as I continued to do what God asked me to do.

Lord, we ask for the wisdom to know what is truly good in Your eyes and how to go about it today. Please deliver us from evil and the temptation to be wise concerning it. And here’s a simple poem . . .

What Is Good

There is a wisdom
in knowing
what is good
and then setting
ourselves to it
without planning evil
for the evil
that threatens.
