For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

"That's My King!" Whose Name Demands Fame Which We Must Die To Proclaim!

He so lived and so spoke that His name became known; Since then His fame has continually grown for He must be honored just as His Father on the throne; He humbled Himself to the point of death all alone; He absorbed God's wrath for sin to atone; Yet He's alive forevermore, from the grave He's flown; All over the world His Gospel will be sown, calling sinners to Himself and making them His very own!
He's the God-man with incomparable fame; He came to heal the lame and all those afflicted with shame; He's the Lion of God Who's good but not tame; His followers must aim to proclaim the wonderful excellencies of His great, matchless name!
Holiness and righteousness are His demand; Life with Him is not bland but abundantly grand; His love and beauty you can't withstand; Your life couldn't be better planned; So reach out by faith and take His hand; Fight for holiness and take your stand, striving to obey His every command; So that one day you'll enter the promised land!
About Him we must speak; He's utterly unique; Don't worry about your technique or your voice mild and weak; But only seek with a heart that's meek to tell of a future so bleak without the glorious salvation He purchased during holy week!

That's my King!  I wonder if you know Him today?!

When Jesus calls you, He calls you to death, but in the process He'll take away your breath, and ultimately give you a high better than meth!
Some like John will die as a martyr; Life on earth couldn't be harder, but God's truth over life they do prefer; Threats of suffering and death will not deter; For Christ's love in their hearts will captivate and stir; a great reward God will eternally confer!
Others will die smaller deaths day by day; Death to self and to all the "good things" He seems to delay; The idols of the heart we're called to slay; Christ must be first, it's the only way; So your number one lover don't betray, but cry "Christ is all!" and His worth display!
Don't sigh and ask Him why; Just plead and cry for Him to help you die and fix your eye on His everlasting supply; Full of love, joy, and mercy that'll never run dry; Him you'll never deny, but to His everlasting arms you'll fly and with His infinite beauty He'll forever satisfy!
What you so long for is only a whore; It's stealing your love and only wants more; It you must abhor and deplore; Against it make war I implore so that you might be set free to soar up from the floor and fly to explore the King's great beauty galore where there's fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore!

That's my King!  That's my King!
