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 Has Highest Authority Position After Dying For Sin Remission And Calls Us To The Great Commission!

My King's utterly supreme with all the power; He rules every moment and every hour; All God's enemies He will devour; And on us forever blessings shower; For on that cross He took death sour; Which made Him in the garden cower; Then rose again in glorious power; With authority over all He'll forever tower!
Therefore we carry out His great commission; This should be our holy ambition; To make disciples in full submission; To the Lord of glory – our great Physician; And obey His every command and admonition; For our salvation He met every condition; Quenched the wrath of God in humble contrition; Then rose from the grave without opposition; Now from all death He grants abolition; To all who trust Him of their own volition; He'll grant joy and pleasures without intermission!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

This Gospel must go forth to every nation; Some have no access to His revelation; Apart from Christ there's only damnation; We must go tell in every location; Since He's so worthy for all of creation; To bow down to Him in utter prostration; And give Him all glory without cessation; He'll fill us with joy for eternal duration; He's our only firm foundation; So listen up – His congregation; Are you burdened for the lost and every nation?  Your King deserves all their adoration; So go forth for Him and preach salvation; And love the lost without limitation!
Jesus is with you to the very end; He stands alone in Himself as the greatest friend; On Him forever you can always depend; Against all evil He will defend; He'll be with you to help wherever He'll send; And through the pain He'll help you transcend; Praise Him for how He did condescend; He came all evil to suspend; And life forever to extend!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's Rich Beyond Measure But Gave Up His Treasure To Fill Us With Pleasure!

The rich young man falls on his knees; And calls Christ good – now help me please; Eternal life he wants to seize; But his heart feeds a great disease; More than the God Who hears his pleas; He loves his money more than these; This is not good – it's sinful sleaze; All his goodness he thinks he sees; Which from his youth he's done with ease; God's holiness cannot appease; Since it's not good – idol disease; So trust the King o'er all decrees; The wrath of God He did appease; And rose again – He holds the keys; To life forever, and He frees; From all our idol loving sleaze; And heals our deepest heart disease; For He Himself's the prize we seize; He's our treasure beyond degrees; So come to Him Who all foresees; Your heart's great thirsts He will appease!
Be sure of this – our God is good; This rich young man misunderstood; And though he's not come from the hood; He'd failed to do the good he should; His god was gold – with wealth he stood; So sin alone is all he could; Jesus loved and understood; Therefore He died upon that wood; And rose alive – on death He stood; He gives new life so that you could; Turn from your sin – live as you should; By faith in Christ God makes you good; So treasure Him – the greatest good!

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

We all are sinners – this is true; Even us out in the pew; Our hearts sweet idols do accrue; Until His sweetest love breaks through; We turn to Christ with hearts anew; And stick to Him like dust to glue; So bid your greatest loves adieu; And take Him for your greatest view; For on that cross He died for you; Richest Young Ruler out they threw; But three days passed – He rose on cue; And all our enemies He slew; The greatest Lover – He will woo; And be to you forever true; He's better than you ever knew; Now your whole life He'll renew!
Since Christ so loved, the truth He must; Tell this man and not adjust; Point out to him his money lust; All idol loves with care He'll bust; And call on Him the Christ to trust; He died to make poor sinners just; And lives to evermore combust; Our hearts with growing love robust; For the very God we trust; So let's not put our hopes in rust; But stay humble at the cross dust; May Christ alone be our true lust; May all our hopes on Him be thrust; He's our only need and must!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who's The Littlest Child With Greatest Righteousness Compiled Yet For Our Sins He Died Reviled!

Keep the children far away; That's what His own disciples say; They're unimportant – only play; And so needy day to day; They waste our time – our life delay; What they take they can't repay; And all our bank accounts decay; But Jesus showed another way; He took them in and made them stay; His mercy says:  "Come here today!  My mercy-heart you can't repay!" He put His love on full display; When on His back our sins did weigh; The Son of Man our God did slay; To take our sins and pride away; All our hopes in Him are "Yea!" God raised Him up on the third day; So now bow down to Him and pray; He'll make you right with God today; And cause you to His Word obey; Then on streets of gold you may; Forever dance and laugh and play!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

On Christ alone we must depend; As helpless babes we can't ascend; There's nothing in us to commend; But only sin our hearts intend; The God of heaven we offend; Therefore our God so loved He'd send; His only Son His life to spend; To lowest lows He would descend; And on that cross His life expend; Then rise alive all death to end; And make poor sinner babes His friend; To helpless faith He will extend; Strong arms of mercy to defend; All condemnation He will end; And grant a love none comprehend; He's greatest joy – o’er all transcend!
Jesus became the helpless Son; Though He could crush His captors' fun; He died and all the work is done; He rose the universe to stun; Now He's the best – second to none; So trust in Him – the Rising Sun!

That's my King!  That's my King!

"That's My King!" Who Was Never Self-seeking But Gave His Life Shrieking To Show The Love God's Speaking!

Jesus never sought His own; But gave up His very throne to with His death atone for all the sin we've sown since holiness we've blown – our hearts were like a stone; Pure marriage we disown; To hatred we are prone; Our hope's in Christ alone; His mercy-heart He's shown; He died with painful groan; And from the grave He's flown; Now we're His bone of bone; If by faith we're known; In holiness we're grown; We'll never be alone; He never will disown; We'll sit up on His throne – He's the best Husband ever known!
Love doesn't seek its own way; It doesn't demand the last say; It comes from a heart of humble clay; Molded according to the Master's way; Because the Christ our debt did pay; On that cross He did obey; And crushed our selfishness display; Then rose our captor – death – to slay; So come to Him – bow down and pray; He'll take your selfishness away; Live "Christ is all!" without delay!

That's my King!  Do you know Him!?

So die to self in communication; Be slow to speak – don't stir agitation; When conflicts arise causing tempter inflation; A kind answer cools the heat formation; Remove the log from your own eye's location; Focus on "me, myself, and I" sin liberation; Be quick to confess your own sin violation; Be first to the cross for pride cancellation; Husband love your wife as Christ loves the congregation; Wife you submit – the church imitation; Enjoy each other to avoid temptation; Come together often for love sensation; Use your money for God glorification; Parent your children and aim at salvation; Fill them with God's Word – their joy foundation; Above all look to Christ – our hope and elation; He saves from all failures in marriage formation; He's the perfect Spouse ruling all of creation;  The ultimate self-less One Who died for every nation; And rose up in triumph – a victorious celebration; Now for His own there's no condemnation; To God be the glory in all marriage reformation!

That's my King!  That's my King!
