Fun

Being a Christian is fun
Honor Jesus the Son
What to do each day
Go to God and pray
An offering to Him bring
And praises do sing
Say to Him thank You
For all You do
Honor Him with your talk
And also with your walk

He Takes It All

God takes all that I’ve had
all that was bad
and made it good
so I could
live a life
free from strife
Without a guess
there’d be no stress
for He did come
and give me some
help in time of need
which has freed
me to do as I ought
not getting caught
in the snares of the day
that the devil does lay
He has freed my feet
without losing a beat
I am on the right road
for He has mowed
the way for me to go
so I will know
I look ahead
and do not dread
for He is with me
this I see.

Ask

All I have to do is ask
then I simply bask.
He has taken care
for God has heard my prayer.
It is always the same
yes, in Jesus’ name.
~
All we have to do
is go to the One who
tends to our every need
if we go to Him and plead
for His mercy in the situation
He will bring consolation.
He hears our call
and will not let us fall.

Things Above *Col. 3:1-10

Set your mind on things above and not on earthly things, for things of this world perish and we cannot take them with us when we die.
~~~
Father God, since we have been raised with Christ, help us to set our hearts on things above, where Jesus is seated at Your right hand. Set our minds on things above, not on earthly things. (Col. 3:1-2 prayer)
Lord, help us to put to death whatever belongs to our earthly nature; sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. (Col. 3:5 prayer)
Lord, help us to rid ourselves of all these things: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from our lips, and lies. I pray we would not lie to one another, since we have taken off our old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. (Col. 3:8-10 prayer)
~~~
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. 7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Fairness *1 Tim. 5:21

Do not show partiality or favoritism to anyone, but treat all people with the same level of fairness.
~~~
21 I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism.
