Only One

 

There is only
one gospel

one Jesus
to believe

only one
Spirit

to regard
and receive.

**********

You are with me and expose what’s false.

**********

“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

“For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted – you may well put up with it.”

2 Corinthians 11:3,4 NKJV

Just As He Pleased

 

We are
the body of Christ

and members
individually

given gifts
by the same God

for manifestation
and edifying.

***********

You are with me and have placed me within the body of Christ with specific gifts for the profit of all.

**********

“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.”

“There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.”

“And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

“But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”

1 Corinthians 12:4,5,6,7,18. NKJV

Glorified

 

Let me glorify You
in my body

and in my spirit
for I am Yours

having been washed
and sanctified by You

justified in the name
of my Lord.

**********

You are with me and are glorified in me.

**********

“Do you not know that the unrighteousness will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.”

“And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

“For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and your spirit, which are God’s.”

The Mind Of Christ

 

For we have
the Spirit of God

and the mind
of Christ

to know the things
we’ve been freely given

to know Him and Him
crucified.

**********

You are with me and give me Your Spirit so I can know You.

**********

“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

“For ‘who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.”

1 Corinthians 2:2,12,16. NKJV. / Isaiah 40:13 NKJV

Peace In Believing

 

I have joy and peace
in believing

because
You fill me up

now living hope
abounds in me

by the power of
Holy Spirit.

***********

I am filled with hope, joy and peace because You are with me.

**********

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

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. “

Receive

 

Let it be to me
as You have said

I receive You
oh I receive

the gift of You
growing inside

I believe You
oh I believe.

**********

You establish the gifts of receiving and conceiving.

**********

“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!’ “

“Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. ‘Don’t be afraid, Mary,’ the angel told her, ‘for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His ancestor David. And He will reign over Israel forever; His Kingdom will never end!'”

“Mary asked the angel, ‘But how can this happen? I am a virgin.’ “

“The angel replied, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and He will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.’ “

“Mary responded, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.’ And then the angel left her.”

Luke 1:26-38

In Spirit And Truth

 

Oh Lord, teach me
to worship You

in spirit and
in truth

for that is what
You’re seeking

so what I long
to do.

You establish how to worship You.

Brought Back

 

I will bring you back
from your captivity

no longer will you
be bound

but filled
with My Spirit

and in My Presence
found.

You establish an end to captivity.

” ‘When I have brought them back from the people’s and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, then they shall know that I am the LORD their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their own land, and left none of them captive any longer. And I will not hide My face from them any more; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel, ‘ says the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 39:27,28,29 NKJV
