MY BIRTHDAY POEM

Just to be clear, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with singing Happy Birthday on any day of the week. But recently it was my birthday on the Lord’s day, and the Lord blessed me with this poem, a reflection of how I was feeling.

MY BIRTHDAY POEM

*

I’ld rather sing to Jesus,

Than you sing a song to me.

Back in ninteen eighty eight,

My Lord Jesus set me free.

*

It’s Him I want to honor,

Because He created me,

And blessed me with salvation,

I’ve been born again you see.

*

Three score and ten a milestone,

Many years upon this earth,

But my true celebration,

Is the day of my new birth.

*

So let us sing to Jesus,

Singing praises to His name,

Who saved me from damnation,

And a life of sin and shame.

*

Let’s praise Him all together,

Tell the world what He has done.

He shed His blood for sinners,

Tell them all about God’s Son.

*

I’ld rather sing to Jesus,

Than you sing a song to me.

Back in ninteen eighty eight,

My Lord Jesus set me free.

*

Have a blessed Lord’s Day!

GREG LAURIE ON… “PEOPLE OF OTHER FAITHS”

Greg Laurie Says God Loves to Hear Prayers From People of All Faiths, Not Just Christians

Quote by Pastor Greg Laurie…

“Prayer is talking to God. For Christians, this is a privilege given to us through our relationship with the Father through his son Jesus. People of other faiths pray in different ways. And God loves to hear our prayers.

THE “SUMMER IS ENDED”

Jeremiah 8:20-22 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

Matthew Henry:

As salvation only can be found in the Lord, so the present moment should be seized.

Is there no medicine proper for a sick and dying kingdom?

Is there no skilful, faithful hand to apply the medicine?

Yes, God is able to help and to heal them.

If sinners die of their wounds, their blood is upon their own heads.

The blood of Christ is balm in Gilead, his Spirit is the Physician there, all-sufficient; so that the people may be healed, but will not.

Thus men die unpardoned and unchanged, for they will not come to Christ to be saved.

LEADING THE LIFE OF A STRANGER…

Genesis 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Ellicott:

In return for his consenting to lead the life of a stranger, he was to be the means of procuring religious privileges, not only for his own descendants, but also “for all families of the earth”

Matthew Henry:

Abram was tried whether he loved God better than all, and whether he could willingly leave all to go with God.

His kindred and his father’s house were a constant temptation to him, he could not continue among them without danger of being infected by them.

The command God gave to Abram, is much the same with the gospel call, for natural affection must give way to Divine grace. Sin, and all the occasions of it, must be forsaken; particularly bad company.

Come out from among them…

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
