At The Door

 

Come to Me
and believe

find love and
acceptance

for at the door
sin awaits

rule over and
reject it.

**********

I am accepted for You are with me.

**********

“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And it’s desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Genesis 4:7. NKJV

Receive

 

I know of
your love for Me

how you share
your faith

now welcome back
those I send

that once made your
heart ache.

**********

I can lovingly welcome back those You send me, for You are with me.

**********

“I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers “

“hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints . . .”

Heirs Of Hope

 

We’ve been justified
by His grace

heirs to the hope
of eternal life

though we too
we’re once deceived

now the Spirit’s poured on us
through Jesus Christ.

**********

I am an heir to hope for You are with me.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3,4,5,6,7. NKJV

Psalm 44 Selah

 

When the unexplainable
happens

and we don’t
understand

help us remember
how great is Your love

that we’re still in
Your hand.

**********

I can pause when bad things happen and remember how much You love me, for You are with me.

**********

“In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.” Selah

“You have given us up like sheep intended for food and have scattered us among the nations.”

“You sell Your people for next to nothing, and are not enriched by selling them.”

“All this has come upon us; but we have not forgotten You, nor have we dealt falsely with Your covenant.”

“Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.”

Psalm 44:8,11,12,17,26. NKJV

The Goal

 

Love
from a pure heart

from a good conscience
from sincere faith

not giving need to
senseless disputes

but to godly edification
and grace.

***********

I can follow good godly instruction for You are with me.

**********

“. . .nor to pay attention to legends (fables, myths), and endless genealogies, which give rise to useless speculation and meaningless arguments rather than advancing God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].”

“But the goal of our instruction is love [which springs] from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.”

1 Timothy 1:4,5 AMP

How Merciful

 

How merciful
You are to me

how kind are You
Jesus

for You filled me
with Your love

and showed me how
to trust.

**********

You are with me and have mercy on me.

***********

“But God had mercy on me because I didn’t know what I was doing, for I didn’t know Christ at that time.”

“Oh, how kind our Lord was, for He showed me how to trust Him and become full of the love of Christ Jesus.”
