A child, a gift from God above,

A child, to care for and to love,

His days on earth have just begun,

Like morning dew and rising sun.


Oh Lord, I give this child to Thee,

His steps and life to oversee,

To guide and watch, and to him show,

The many blessings You bestow.


Grant him Your wisdom from above,

Show him Your mercy and great love,

But most of all I ask of Thee,

Show him the Cross of Calvary.


Open his heart while he’s still small,

To hear the beckon of Your call,

And when his earthly race is run,

To hear You say, “My child, well done”.


The Bible tells us of two births,

One from above, one of this earth,

When all his days on earth are told,

I pray Your face he will behold.

John 3:6-7  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.


My husband and I were in a large store we were waiting to be helped. Also waiting for help was an elderly man who was of my Italian ancestry and Roman Catholic background. In addition to that he was from my old neighborhood. We chatted awhile and then the man said he had recently returned from visiting Lourdes and Fatima. He reminded me of my Dad and Italian family and my heart was broken. My husband felt the same way. How could we feel such love for a total stranger? The answer is that “the love of Christ constraineth us” (2 Corinthians 5:14). We gave him two tracts that look like little bibles …

Earlier in the day a believer that I know was minimizing Rome’s errors and Graham’s apostasy and duplicity. Nothing I could say would convince otherwise. As Keith Green proclaimed, the church is “asleep in the light”.


Very edifying article at link …


Excerpt …

“… it is the error of their teachers who, by preaching the theory of ‘the carnal Christian’, have led them to believe that there are three groups of men, — the unconverted man, the ‘carnal Christian’ and the ‘spiritual Christian’.”
