Jim Price sent us this very poignant and timely poem . . . so that we can remember that Jesus is no longer dead. He is alive. He is active. And what He did so long ago gives us heaven. We look forward to eternal life with Him forever. We need have no fear of death. Death has no power.
HE IS RISEN!
The Story – An Easter Poem
Mark sent this poem in the other day and because I’m lazy, I didn’t get it up on the website until just now. So here it is. May you enjoy it and may it help you remember Jesus’ great sacrifice.
He gave His life for us. It’s our reasonable service to give our lives completely — for Him.
Royal Blood Shed – A Good Friday Poem
Thank you Lanette for your first poem submitted to our site! It’s something I think about a lot. Do my children know the all-encompassing love of the Father? Do they realize that His love is deeper than mine? Do they understand that His love is eternal? My job, as their earthly father, is to help them develop their relationship with their heavenly Father.
Tell Them of His Love
Mike and Mark keep sending in thought-provoking and encouraging poetry. I have loads to publish — I’m just slow to do so. Pray for focus for me so I can get more poems posted, more testimonies posted, and more of Tim’s work posted. Thanks again for your poetry Mike. It’s much appreciated.
As I was posting this article today, I could literally hear Tim’s voice talking to me. I could see his face and I remembered his life. These words weren’t lip service for him. These words were him. He spoke them, displayed them, lived them.
If you’ve sinned too many times, if you’re feeling hopeless and that you’ve done too much for God to forgive, stop! Trust Him. Trust His promises. Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow. He wants us to return to Him, forsake our lives of sin then live out a life of faith in His Word.
Leave Your Sin Behind and Return to Jesus
Mark has been sending me inspirational poems for the last couple weeks. Pretty regularly, I’ll get a text with some inspired words sent for the purpose of encouraging me! And the words are coming at a time when I really need encouragement. It reminds me that a kindly-placed word carries much weight. Here’s one of his recent poems.
A reader wanted to know what we think of Joyce Meyer and her teachings. We do not want to bad-mouth Joyce Meyer, as we agree with her statement of faith and are appreciative of the fact that she’s open about her ministry’s finances. However, we do have a few problems with some of her basic tenets.
Joyce Meyer and the Prosperity Gospel Teachings
Mark has a tendency to write poems when he’s on the city bus, his way to work. I’m not sure that this one was born in that fashion, but I’d bet it was. Do you have a time like that each day that you can devote to the Lord? Thanks Mark, for the encouraging poem.
The Missing Key
Sorry I haven’t posted for some time. Life (and sometimes death) just gets in the way sometimes. I’m starting to catch up on things and will get back to posting new content soon.
Sometimes, with Tim gone, I just feel so inadequate to run the site. I can’t answer questions the way he could. I can’t give the insight that he gave. But I can continue to post new material (and many older items that Tim wrote that are yet unpublished) and will do so soon!
In His service,
Recently we received an email from a reader who stated that he was “living in fear every day.” We say that this is no way to live. And we also say that the Bible teaches us that we do not need to be afraid. We should not live under condemnation but in the freedom of Jesus Christ. He has broken our chains of bondage. He has released us from the weight of past sin. Trust His promises.
