The Greatest Gift

                                 "For God so loved the world,
                                           that he gave his only begotten Son,        
                                                      that whosoever believeth in him
                                                                                     should not perish,    
                                                                                             but have everlasting life."

                                                                         (John 3:16)

Free Through Christ

                       "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."

                                                                 (John 8:32)

It has happened time and again,

When desire to stand up for Jesus,

To be true to what He taught

Becomes paramount in our lives,

Things change for the better.

In so many wonderful ways.

We're removed from places

Where we no longer need to be,

And put in circumstances

Where we can more widely bless.

                    I do confess,

When Christ has been in charge

Of conditions needing adjusting

I have indeed become free.

For His Holy Child

"I receive not hour from men." 

"How can you believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?"

"All men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father."

(John 5: 23, 41, 44)

                                            CHRIST JESUS

Whatever our work

In life happens to be,

We should question

Ourselves regularly:

Am I doing what I'm doing,

For His Holy Child, or --

For personal homage?
