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 Never Ever Fell Away But Always Did Just What He'd Say Then God Did Strike The Shepherd Slay His Own He Won't Deny But Pay He Died And Rose To Love Display!

We've all fallen away
By what we think and do and say
The disciples here have led the way
They all forsook Him – went astray
But Jesus never fell away!

Oh, we've all fallen away
His disciples failed to understand
Jesus rebuked them
They had hard hearts
They didn't understand Him
They all fell away
But Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
Jesus' disciples lacked faith
They argued in pride and arrogance over who would be the greatest
They failed to deny themselves, pick up their crosses, and follow Him
They all fell away
But Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
Peter had to be called Satan
Peter took his eyes off Jesus and began to sink in the raging sea
Peter denied His Lord Jesus three times
Peter fell away
They all fell away
But Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
We've made gods of all kinds of things and people and hopes and dreams instead of the only true God
We've taken God's name in vain
We've disregarded the right worship of God
We've all sinned and fallen short of God's glory
We've all fallen away
But Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
We've dishonored and disobeyed our parents and other authorities in our lives
We've murdered in our hearts
We've committed adultery in our hearts
We've stolen time and money from our employers
We've lied
We've been discontent, grumbled and complained, and desired what we don't have
We've all fallen away
But Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
But God . . . but God changed us
And now we'll never be the same!
By grace through faith in Christ
We now fall away from sin
We now fall away from hell
We now fall away from death
Because Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
In Jesus we've fallen away from our love for sin
We've fallen away from our desires for what God forbids
We've fallen away from hatred
We've fallen away from lust
We've fallen away from idolatry
Because Jesus never fell away!

We've all fallen away
Because of the cross and resurrection, we've fallen away from the curse because Jesus fell into the curse
We've fallen away from God's wrath because Jesus fell into God's wrath
We've fallen away from everlasting judgment because Jesus fell into everlasting judgment
We've fallen away from pain, tears, and death because Jesus fell into pain, tears, and death
We've fallen into fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore because Jesus was cast out of fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore on that cross!
Praise God that Jesus never fell away!
