The Gospel According to the Bible



The Gospel According to the Bible

Jesus our Creator, who freed us from slavery and was appointed the greatest High Priest, became our water in the desert and our manna from Heaven. He is our law keeper and the High Commander who delivers us from injustice. He is our Kinsman-Redeemer, our Prophet and Priest, and our wisest ruler. He is the son of David and the priest proclaiming freedom over His people. He is the one who restores what is broken down and protects His people. He is like a voice in the whirlwind, our song in the morning and in the night, our wisdom, our meaning for life, and our beloved. He became the Suffering Servant and the weeping Messiah so that He could answer our cry for mercy. He is the Son of Man, the one who stands in the fire and the lion’s den with us, the faithful husband, and the one who shows us undeserved compassion. He is the arbitrator of justice to the oppressed and the judge of those who do evil. He is the shade giving vine who casts our sin and failures into the sea of forgetfulness. He is our future world peace, the crusher of injustice, the warrior who saves, the true object of worship, the Messiah who was pierced for us, the son of righteousness, the true king, the servant Messiah, our healer, and the word of God in the flesh. He is the spirit who dwells with His people and the righteousness of God. He is our down payment of what is to come and indeed our very life. He is the spirit that unifies the church to bring joy to the lives of all who believe in Him. He is the Sovereign over all things and our comforter in the last days. He is the savior of the worst of sinners, the foundation of truth, our freedom, our High Priest, our sanctification, our hope in times of suffering, and the source of all truth. He is the one who protects us from stumbling and he is ever present throughout history as the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the alpha and the omega who has been since the beginning and will be through the end.

The Winter Savior



The Winter Savior

I see the snowflakes falling falling
Out the window, through the trees.
I hear the cold wind blowing blowing
Rustling up the fallen leaves

I feel the cold air pressing pressing
‘gainst the door, throughout the hall
I smell the winter coming coming
With expected force and gall.

I taste the crystals melting melting
Landing on my tongue and coat
I sense the darkness rising rising
Creeping up to sap my hope. 

Yet even in the sense filled wonder 
Of this cold and darker season...

I taste and see His goodness goodness
As the crystals melt away. 
I smell His fragrance filling filling
As He calms the blusters sway 

I feel His presence with me, with me
As the darkness closes in
I hear Him whisper gently gently
As He speaks to me within

I see His Spirit coming coming
As He tarry’s not for long
I sense my Savior calling calling
As He draws me home, where I belong.

The Sheep in the Heap



The Sheep in the Heap

The farmer lost his sheep. 
They were hiding in a heap. 
They were in a haystack in a heap.
So the farmer found his sheep  
In the haystack, in the heap.
And in His arms he'll safely keep.
All the sheep from in the heap.
