The Name

February 18, 2015

The Father,
Creator,
All Sovereign,
Supreme,
Transcendent,
Exalted,
All Wise–
Holy,
Almighty,
His Excellency,
In Him all Divinity lies.

The Son,
The Christ,
Immanuel,
The Truth,
The Lamb that was Slain–
The Word,
The Life,
The Light of Men,
The King who forever will reign.

The Spirit,
The Promise,
The Paraclete,
The Oil of Gladness and Grace–
The Comforter,
Spirit of Counsel and Might,
The Dove of Heaven’s embrace.

The Father,
The Son,
The Holy Ghost,
The fountain,
The spring,
The flow–
Choosing,
Redeeming,
Atonement for man,
The seal of the heart and the soul.

One God
Incomprehensible,
Our loftiest
Adoration–
Only in reverence
Speak The Name,
And joy in the God of Salvation.

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Ps 8:9

Holy and awesome is his name. Ps 111:9

Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.  Ps 29:2

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.  Ps 148:13

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Prov 18:10

He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth — the LORD God Almighty is his name.  Amos 4:13

The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.  Zech 14:9

Water of Life

November 12, 2013

just as tears that form in sorrow
drops of remorse streak down the face
and just as water ever seeks
runs and fills the lowest place
just as streams that form in mountains
build to a rushing rivers pace
so the Spirit of the Savior
saves and fills
and blesses
with grace

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.  To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.”  Rev. 21:6

I’m Free!

March 7, 2011

(based on Romans 6-8:14)

a teaching rhyme
by Jerry Collier

Oh what a wretched man I am.
I do what I don’t want to do.
The ‘law of sin’ has a hold on me—
distorting my point of view.
I know that God’s laws are perfectly good.
His laws I desire to keep.
Yet to the wrong my mind returns—
dismayed that my sins run so deep.
But this great message then speaks out.
I can’t believe what I hear.
Listen to what it says to me.
The message is not unclear!

“No condemnation; none at all!
I nailed your sins to a tree.

The law of sin and death—no more!
My Spirit has set you free.

I took the sin that shattered your life
and placed it on my Son.

Your sin, with Him, was slain on the cross.
I wept as your freedom was won.

My righteous requirements had to be met.
I did what the law could not do.

I sent my Son to kill the sin;
and my Spirit to make you new.”

No condemnation!  Did you hear?
Jesus has set me free!
The law that kept me a slave to sin—
no longer has hold of me!
This body of sin that I drag around
is only a lifeless shell.
It lost its source,
its pow’r to enforce.
Shall I treat it as though it is well?

I owe no debt to the ‘sinful man’;
his enticement—I will flee.
And I, by the Spirit, can put to death
the betrayal he urges in me.
Do you now see and understand?
To sin I am no more bound!
I have become a servant of God.
‘In Christ’ my identity’s found.
Here is what happened to ‘sinful man’.
Yes, he was nailed to the cross.
And now that I have been freed from him. . . .
He is no longer the boss!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John 8:34-37
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.  Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.  So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
NIV
