A Pure Offering


Bring to Me
your purest offerings

whatever you have
without blemish

for I am truly
your Great King

Who you can trust
with your very best.


I can give You my very best, for You are with me.


” ‘For from the rising of the sun, even to it’s going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; in every place incense shall be offered to My name, and a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the nations,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

” ‘ But cursed be the deceiver who has in his flock a make and takes a vow, but sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished – for I am a great King,’ says the LORD of hosts, and My name is to be feared among the nations.”

Malachi 1:11,14 NKJV

Be Ready


Preach the word
in season and out

convince, rebuke

for the time will come
when sound doctrine won’t be heard

so be watchful and fulfill
your work.


I can preach the word for You are with me.


“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears they will heap up for themselves teachers;”

“and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

“But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”

We will suffer

when we desire to live
godly in Christ

as evil men
grow worse and worse

God’s word will make
us wise.


I can endure persecution, for You are with me.


“Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.”

“But evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

“But you must continue in the things whcih you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,”

“and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith whcih is in Christ Jesus.”

In Humility


Be gentle
avoiding quarrels

teaching others

humbly correcting
those who oppose

so the truth is known
and they’re set free.


I can avoid arguing, for You are with me.


“And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,”

“in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,”

“and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”

He Remains Faithful


If we die with Him
we shall live

if we endure
with Him we’ll reign

if we deny Him
we’ll be denied

if we’re faithless
His faithfulness remains.


I can endure all things, for You are with me.


“Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.”

“This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him.”

“If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us.”

“If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.”

Share In The Sufferings


We’ve been saved and called
with a holy calling

by His own purpose
and grace

to share in the sufferings
for the gospel

bringing forth His power
and praise.


I can suffer for the gospel according to Your power, for You are with me.


“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God,”

“who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began . . .”
