    Preparing to be Called Out

    I think believers can find great relevance in this history. Passover is when Jesus, our Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7), was sacrificed for us. As we enter the spring, a season for new life, we must prepare ourselves to meet Him at His cross. As pilgrims through this world, we must guard ourselves from the uncleanness of the world. As we celebrate the Savior in our hearts, we must purge all sin from our entire being.

  • The Appointment of Christmas

    The Appointment of Christmas

    Sometimes Christmas presentsAre last-minute things—We rush to just buy something—Hope for joy it brings. Sometimes gifts are well thought outAnd studied with care,But executed hurriedlyWe hope the idea’s fair. Sometimes our grand designsAre thwarted in some way:The store’s sold out, it’s discontinued—It costs how much? No way!  But God’s Christmas PresentWas no last-minute mad dash.He did […]

    There’s a Fire In My Heart Today

  • To Be Human

    To Be Human

    Jesus died not for angels Nor zebras nor the crane. He died not for marsupials Nor tigers just the same. He wasn’t born a monkey Or any other beast, Though He’s called the Lion of Judah The Lamb of God, our peace. He was born a man, a gift to men, Offered to none before. What an honor life becomes To know and love Him more.

  • A New Song

    A New Song

    Come and sing God a new song. Come worship! Come join the throng. Let’s dance like David in the street And touch the lives of all we meet. Come, let us climb the mountain peak To shout His name. Come mild and meek!

  • How Can Man See God and Live?

    How Can Man See God and Live?

    Three thousand five hundred years ago, Moses asked God to show him His glory. God answered, “you cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.” In my poem and post “How Can Man See God and Live,” I explain how people already have seen God, and how we get to see His glory.

  • The Power of the Resurrection

    The Power of the Resurrection

    This is a repost of one of my poems about the resurrection of Jesus, but the story following is new. Some people consider Christianity an artifact, but I explain how the God of the Bible is as alive and active now as He ever was.
