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!" Who Crushed The Serpent With Passion Fervent As The Suffering Servant!

Jesus taught His suffering was a must; Gruesome horror your stomach would disgust; On that cross He was humbled to the dust; For on that bloody tree He was made our lust; That though ungodly we could be made just; If in Him alone by faith we'd trust; And all our hopes and dreams on Him are thrust; He rose up from the dead to live robust; To save our lives from ending in the dust; Where all our treasures die and end in rust; But we will live for glory He discussed; All because our Holy King was killed and crushed!
The greatest Lover of all had to be rejected; By His own bride He was disrespected; Through pain and suffering He'd be perfected; As Messiah this was unexpected; Upon Himself all sin was collected; Where on that cross He was erected; To suffer and die alone dejected; But rose up from death all unaffected; The King of kings was resurrected; To save all those whom God elected; God's glory He perfectly reflected; Now we're the church – in love connected; So we can live as He directed; And we'll never be neglected; For by His love we're safe protected!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

Peter thought he should correct God's mistake; Rebuking Christ – on suffering he'd put the brake; The Messiah's mission he'd remake; Rebuking God is an insane mistake; He acted like the evil tempting snake; The suffering mission Christ would not forsake; So people could escape the fiery lake; If forsaking all, this Christ they'd take; He alone can heal your heart they'd break; For He alone can fill your life's deep ache; Since with His love He'll make you quake, shake, and all other loves forsake because His sight compels a double take when to His beauty your eyes awake!
Jesus loved Peter with a stern correction; With this word He crushed Satan's insurrection; Some love's received with only thick skin protection; Peter's mind was set on man's direction; God's plan is always the best selection; The way up's the way down in God's perfection; To die is to live – Christ's life reflection; On that cross He took the greatest rejection; So you would be loved with greatest affection; He loved before time when He chose your election; From the greatest Lover, there's no more rejection; For He proved His love by death and resurrection!

That's my King!  That's my King!
