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's The King Of Self Denial And Endured The Hardest Trial To Win God's Everlasting Smile!

Jesus calls for self denial; More self-esteem is not His style; In your own heart you'll find what's vile; He'll rip it out and make a pile; Against this heap you'll be hostile; You'll come away from self awhile; And "Christ is all!" will be your smile; Since you, to God, He'd reconcile; When on that cross He faced God's trial; And rose all glories to compile; For in His soul was found no guile!
To take up your cross means death to self by execution; That cross was Rome's death tool – a cruel institution; Much worse than our chair of death by sudden electrocution; Or the dreaded guillotine of the French Revolution; Death to sin and self must be our holy resolution; Christ died the greatest death to end sin's dark pollution; On His cross He took God's wrath – our penal substitution; To all sin, death, and pain – He's this world's only solution!

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

Jesus' call is to follow Me; Oh may God grant you eyes to see; The greatness of this One in Three; Who took our sin upon that tree; And then rose up to set us free; He truly is the Me of of me's; And all God's wrath He did appease; And now salvation guarantees; To joy and life He holds the keys; So bow to Him on bended knees!
If you lose your life for Jesus' sake; You'll save your life – make no mistake; He's worthy all else to forsake; He'll give you joy no trial can break; Consider your choice and what's at stake; Heaven and Hell – the fiery lake; Believe in Him – His mercy take; And from the dead you'll rise awake!
If you gain all riches and this world whole; There is no profit if you lose your soul; Owning all this world is an empty goal; Since hell's your payment – death's your toll; So come to Christ, He'll make you whole; For He alone can satisfy your soul!

That's my King!  That's my King!
