Christ humbled Himself and became a man

With a message He came, obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on a tree to save our soul

This was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

He died for you, He died for me

He brought us His Word, He brought us grace

Christ gives us power to run in this race

He gives what we need to live a holy life

He’s our strength in temptation and in strife

I’ve tasted God’s goodness, I’ve tasted His ways

From His commands I never want to stray

Christ is my Savior, He is my Lord

He is my comfort when in discord

Christ changed my heart, for this I know

As I practice His ways there’s fruit that shows

Jesus is more than just a friend

I know He’ll be with me till the very end

I love my Jesus with all of my heart

I try to put Him first right from the start

There’s power in the blood, there’s power in the resurrection

If you submit to Jesus He will give you more than affection

He gives us love, He calls us His heir

I hope you will choose Jesus, This is my prayer

I wrote this poem last week and was working on a poem for my Celebrate Recovery group when I decided to put them together to see if they fit. Please write me and tell me your thoughts. The first stanza is added.

1 PETER 1:13-16 Be Holy

(13) Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. (14) As obedient children do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. (15)But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; (16) for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

A Call To Holiness

As I think about my addictions today

There is a voice that tells me no way

I ask if I am ever going to be healed

I remember that in Christ I am sealed

Christ is my only hope and strength

As long as I do not keep Him at arms length

 

Gods Word inspires us to action

Without Christ we have no traction

So prepare your minds, be self controlled

Set your hope on Grace this we are told

It’s only God that gives us grace

And endurance to run this race

 

So as obedient children do not conform

To the evil desires that caused us storms

We no longer live a life of ignorance

In Christ we take a stand, we take a stance

To live the life that we are called

It’s Holiness that won’t get us stalled

We are called to be Holy in all we do

We submit our life to Christ for He is Holy too
