Ever Righteous

 

He is ever righteous
among us

His ways are
always pure

each day He reveals
His justice to us

His unfailing love
endures.

**********

I can know Your justice for You are with me.

**********

“The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, but the unjust knows no shame.”

Of The Day

 

We are not
in spiritual darkness

but sons of light
daughters of day

wearing our breastplates
of faith and love

with the confident hope
of the saved.

**********

I have a confident hope and assurance of salvation, for You are with me.

**********

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should over take you as a thief.”

“You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor darkness.”

“But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”

1 Thessalonians 5:4,5,8. NKJV

Increase In Love

 

Lord, increase our love
for one another

and to everyone
more and more

establishing our hearts
blameless and holy

before the One
we adore.

**********

You are with me and increase my love for others.

**********

“And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you,”

“so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.”

Put On Love

 

Wearing love
and thanksgiving

in My name
do everything

with My peace
ruling in your hearts

My word lives in you
and sings.

**********

You are with me and make my life sing.

**********

“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body and be thankful.”

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Twists

 

Let me not practice
ignore or tolerate

anything in me
that’s not of You

keeping to
Your word and Your way

not twisting and turning
the Truth.

**********

I can respond with truth and love, for You are with me.

**********

“And I said. ‘Hear now, heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel
Is it not for you to know and administer justice?’ “

“Then they will cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; instead, He will even hide His face from them at that time [withholding His mercy] because they have practiced and tolerated and ignored evil acts.”

“Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who hate and reject justice and twist everything that is straight . . .”

Rooted And Grounded

 

O Lord strengthen us
on the inside

by Your Holy Spirit
and might

filling us with
Your fullness

to know Your love
it’s depth, its height.

**********

I am rooted and grounded in Your love, for You are with me.

**********

“. . . that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, “

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,”

“may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

In The Spirit

 

We live and walk
in the Spirit

by which Jesus
set us free

to love and serve
one another

to wait and hope
eagerly.

**********

I can be Spirit led for You are with me.

**********

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

“For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.”

“For you brethren have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Not For Ourselves

 

We are compelled
by Your love

knowing You died
for everyone

so we can live
not for ourselves

but for You
God’s Righteous Son.

**********

You are with me so I can live for You.

**********

“For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if one died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.”
