Sin and the Sinner Meet
By David Smith August 13, 2013
Where there is sin, there is always a sinner
That was the drift as our pride grew thinner
Looking for evidence in a crime scene, we saw
Important people found guilty, as they’re broken and crawl
All our good works and training we do,
Is all in vain, we can’t work our way through.
No matter how many times at the stop sign we pause
Go though it once we are subject to the laws.
We talked about Joshua and his detective work came about
Important people in scriptures were guilty, no doubt.
Biblical history ties together from the past to today.
Now is the time for forgiveness we pray.
Biblical truths came to light at Vacation Bible School.
God’s law is standard, the perfect rule.
So How to measure up, and what can we do.
The finished work of the Cross, the evidence points to.
There is nothing we can do, our righteousness as filthy rags.
Christ and, Christ crucified is all we can brag.
The wages of sin is death
But the gift of God is eternal life.
That was the message of meditation to night
Vacation Bible School Concluding Message
By David Smith August 15, 2014
What a humble message at vacation bible school
The Ten Commandments, and perfection, is God’s perfect rule
A touching story of “The Little Flower”
A mayor of New York with judgement power
Fined a man guilty of stealing bread was his sin
To keep his family fed for this city to live in
The mayor paid the fine and fined everyone around
For allowing poverty to flourish in The New York City town
The judge set the fine and paid it too
That is the reflection of what the Lord Jesus did do
Sin always has a very high price
It’s the shedding of blood for payment to suffice
The wages of sin is death and eternal punishment severe
Though sin is pleasurable, it’s the end result to fear
David with one sin broke 10 Commandments grand
A man after God’s own heart at His mercy he did stand
Jesus came into the world from heaven
Just like the manna, the bread un-leaven
I and my Father are one
The Saviour, the Lamb, He is the Son
God took all my sin and laid it on the cross
That cross built for me and Christ paid the cost
It is finished. At the cross, He did pay
He took my night and turned it into day
Pilate knew Jesus was innocent, in Him he found no fault
Afraid of loosing esteem, the crucifixion he did not halt.
Under the law we are talented sinners
We do it all quite well
Yet we need a saviour to keep us from eternal hell
Realize I’m a sinner and looking for a door
Jesus is the answer. He settled the judgement score
What a humble message at the closing of the day
Sin paid in full, to accept it and obey.
Sunday Night Gospel in Poem Form
By David Smith Sunday August 10, 2014
God so loved the world; to come a certain way
To realize I am a sinner and Christ my sins did pay.
Realizing I am bankrupt and nothing I can do.
God so Loved the World. HIS way it shines through
The Pharisees love of money, and God benefits are wealth
That is Man’s perspective and Christ tips the religious shelf.
How could God be loving to sacrifice His son?
Unless there is a danger where hell and fire run
And the Love is simple, a person that we trust
The Loving Lord Jesus, belief in Him a must.
And it is secure; eternal if you will
Whom he justified he glorified for His eternal thrill
Unless response expected, and a big yes, if you please
For if it is denial, Lake of Fire, He will sneeze.
And that is the Gospel, the choice is up to you
Reject it or embrace it, which door do you go through?

My Bible, God’s Word, tattered and worn
Opened and closed in the wee hours of the morn
The Bible, well used, as pages they turn
Being chiselled in the heart, the scriptures we learn
A battered Bible, Faith says it all
Newness of life, a new birth as we crawl
Then to stand on God’s Word as we shout
It is finished, the Cross, what the Gospel is about
The bible, tattered, well worn, and read
Opened and shut, the Old Nature we dread
The Time Line (Inspired September 12, 2007)
A time line we heard last night
Structure to history, things in order so right
As the world sees importance, tombstone and date
Progression of time as growth has a rate
A new time line as scriptures hit hard
From the Second Birth, as Christ Jesus is in charge
Being Born again as death looses it’s sting
Eternal security in everything.
A new time line as we are fed by his Word
Another dimension where eternity is assured
To grow in Christ, in trials and difficulties too
Not be ashamed of what God can do
The time line from God to measure growth by his way
What a message I got that day
Tasting the Furry of Niagara Falls
By David Smith June 5, 2014
The mighty thunderous roar and turbulence throughout
Huge mountains of water and mist and wind about
And to be at peace where this all takes place
The Horn blower Boat tour, Nature we can face
And be at rest on that stable ship
In the turbulent waters it is an amazing trip.
In the comfort of God’s hand as this turbulence is all around
We can taste His furry
And at peace so safe and sound
So to think of scripture
As the Red Sea divides
And God’s chosen people to solid ground they stride
In the midst of turbulent waters, Mountains gushing all around
Water creating a draft as a hurricane is bound
This is the safety like being in Noah’s ark
In the midst of darkness
God’s word creates the spark
To experience the mist
And full brunt of wind
With wonderment of nature
God’s word to rest therein
With His fingers he put the stars in place
The wonder of the falls His handiwork we can face
To be on the ship the Maid of the mist it was
Under new management creating a buzz
So I see the power of God’s mighty hand
He is in control for this man made ship to land.
And what a great experience where Man and Nature Meet.
The magnificence of God; His power can’t be beat.
The Grand Piano Compares to Grand Salvation
By David Smith April 6, 2014
The piano, a story, as it misses a few notes;
Looks like a masterpiece, but the keys are not what the Master wrote.
What a luster finish, the Grand Piano on display
The climax of the showcase, it’s the inside that gets in the way
Can relate to the piano so grand
How to speak and take a firm stand
But it’s the heart that may be out of tune
What the public does not see, can make the Lord God fume
The cost of repair for the piano that day
An honest evaluation, what the appraiser had to say
It’s not the piano and how the music is grand
It’s my relationship with Christ where my sin is at hand
O to measure the standard of God
The Ten Commandments; where my righteousness is flawed
An honest evaluation before judgement day
The finished work of the Cross, what the Redeemer did pay
He did it all to put me in tune
The good news of the Gospel where a new creation can bloom
We are His workmanship in His Second birth
He paid the cost when he came to this Earth.
By grace are ye saved though faith alone
We are His workmanship
He sits on the Royal Throne.
O the Cross, where sin is washed away
Cleansed by His Blood for the Judgement day
