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 . . .”

2 Timothy 1:8,9. NKJV

You Are A Blessing

 

I will save you
to be a blessing

do not fear
let your hands be strong

speaking the truth
to one another

letting justice and peace
take the place of wrong.

**********

You are with me so I am a blessing.

**********

“And it shall come to pass that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, let your hands be strong.”

“These are the things you shall do: speak each man the truth to his neighbor; give judgement in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;”

“let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor; and do not love a false oath. For all these are things that I hate.”

Zechariah 8:3,16,17 NKJV

Made Alive

 

I was far off
but brought near

by the blood
of Christ

saved through faith
Your mercy and grace

once dead now I’m
alive.

**********

You are with me and make me alive.

**********

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins . . .”

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,”

“even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ . . .”

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God . . .”

Ephesians 2:1,4,5,8 NKJV

By All Means

 

O Lord may I
In some way

relate to each one
I meet

that they might be
encouraged

and in You
be reached.

**********

I can share You with others, because You are with me.

**********

“I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

“Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”

1 Corinthians 9:22,23 NKJV

You Will Be Saved

 

When we confess
with our mouths

the Lord Jesus Christ
and call upon His name

believing with our hearts
God raised Him from the dead

we will be saved
and not put to shame.

*********

You are with me and save me.

**********

“. . .if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

“For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.”

“For the scripture says, ‘Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.’ “

Isaiah 28:11
Romans 10:9,10,11 NKJV

Gathered

 

I hear your cry
and regard your affliction
remembering the covenant
I have made

according to
My multitude of mercies
I gather you to Me
and save.

A laid down life triumphs in His praise

“Nevertheless He regarded their affliction, when He heard their cry; and for their sake He remembered His covenant, and relented according to the multitude of His mercies. Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the Gentiles, to give thanks to Your holy name, and to triumph in Your praise.” Psalm 106:44,45,47 NKJV

Covenant

 

Remember daily
My wonderous works
how I saved
and redeemed you

to tell others
all I have done
and of My covenant
with you.

A laid down life is in a covenant relationship with God.

“Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of all His wonderous works. Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore. Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgements of His mouth. He has remembered His covenant forever.” Psalm 105:2,4,5,8

Through His Grace

“Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?”  Acts 15:10 NKJV
“But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved in the same manner as they.”  Acts 15:11 NKJV

Only Jesus saves.

Thank You, Lord, for Your saving grace.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

No more burdens
must we bear

from heavy yokes
we are spared

for now we trust
and have faith

that only by Jesus
are we saved.

God bless you and save you today!

“. . .let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.” Acts 4:10 NKJV
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 NKJV

Only by Jesus, am I still standing here today.

Thank You, Lord, for the power of Your name.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We will call
on Your name, Jesus
for no other name
will do

no other name
can save us
no other can see
us through.

God bless you as you call on His name today!
