Inspired by a Lawyer

lawyerInspired by a Lawyer

By David Smith August 9, 2006

A lawyer comes in with his flattened bow-tie;

Pomp and ceremony, as righteousness, is adhered by;

The formal drab, in the righteousness of the crown;

As scribes and Pharisees, so legally bound.

Christ brings forgiveness, love through faith, to obey;

Not iron fisted, to manipulate truth, all day;

Seeing the pomp, and the ceremonial robe;

Putting on Christ, as the obedience of Job;

And being forgiven, not by the law;

The cross, the blood, the suffering, I saw;

The black robe is the judgment;

Imperfection is my name;

Christ paid my ransom, and bore all my shame;

Now it’s a commitment;

The Gospel, to every creature;

Being born a new, a commandment, from the teacher.

Five Loaves, Two Fishes, and Five Thousand Men

Five Loaves and Two Fishes and Five Thousand Men

By David Smith July 15, 2009

Five loaves and two small fishes for five thousand males.

Study John Six: one to fifteen for picturesque details.

Five is the figure of our imperfection as we are;

Five loaves our inadequacy, and in Christ we can go far.

Two fishes symbolizes conflict; two entirely different points of view.

Like body and spirit; or from law to saving grace;

All things become so new.

Thousands: uncountable, an infinite number

The harvest is great. There is no time to slumber.

Man in supply of his weakness; so very sad and true.

In the hand of Christ dividing; multiplying believers, in faith becomes so new.

And so we have the message; the gospel so vivid and sure.

Follow the I AM in scripture; faith to only endure.

As Jesus fed the five thousand plus

Believers carry the great commission; that’s why all the fuss.

Five loaves and two fishes; we are in desperate need.

Christ, the bread from heaven; the multitude we too can feed.

The Cat and Dog Syndrome

The Cat and Dog Syndrome

Inspired by Doo Yang

By David Smith March 12, 2009

 

Give a dog love, affection and a place to sleep;

Food from the table; the blessings he will reap.

You will be his master, and he will follow and obey.

The dog and his master; a scenario, we say.

Give a cat affection and a place to call her own;

You become the servant; the cat on her righteous throne.

It all ties together with God’s blessings of love.

Some look at God, the master, from above.

Others, the blessings as we lord it over all

It’s all in perspective as we react to God’s call.

The rain will fall on the just and unjust.

Treasures in heaven will never wear out or rust.

The story of the dog and cat is fictions and safe.

Who so ever will,

The Word of the LORD puts people in their place.

Golden Rings Inspired at Gospel Hall

By David Smith October 21, 2006

 

 

Golden rings bombarded my thoughts

The weather, the sermon

That James Smith had brought

The Ring of Son ship

The prodigal son so clear

His father ran out, a kiss so dear

A ring of son ship on his hand was placed

An inheritance from the father with love and grace

The ring of Lordship

When Joseph we read

Distributing food becomes his deed

A Pharaoh, a Lord to go to Him

For daily bread, a famine was in

The ring of security on the breast plate so grand

To hold and protect a secure place to stand

The rings on the Ark responsibility in place

To be saved in Christ a service to face

The tabernacle, the alter, a cross to bear

What a service for love to share

The wedding ring in continuous motion

A family in love with true devotion

All the rings through the bible we read

Commitment and responsibility a Christian deed

Lord of the rings a deeper meaning

Picturing Christ eternal trust to be seeing

Interpretation of Stephen’s Defence

Interpretation of Stephen’s Defence

By David Smith June 8, 2009

The Holy Spirit ran through Stephen as he spoke so sure;

Joseph and Moses; examples so pure;

Types of Christ; rejection and pain

Powerful leaders to Israel was their gain.

 

Stephen spoke of the prophets; the Patriarchs’ grand

The Pharisees stoned him.

Examples of Christ they would not understand.

 

Stephen simplified the Old Testament with flair.

Related it to Christ; Power to compare.

 

The guilt and the shame,

The Cross, they did not want to hear.

They stoned Stephen so Christianity would disappear.

Saul was converted and he preached Christ.

The Old and New Testament fit together so nice.

 

Stephen’s speech before he was killed.

Faith is the answer; the Saints were thrilled.

His speech was but a moment and the pages live on

The Word of the Lord; Christ’s light has shone.

An Act of God

An Act of God

By David Smith July 3, 2009

“An Act of God,” I heard her say

As fire raged through her town one day.

And Act of God, as I dwell on the pain.

When is Man responsible?

Who else can he blame?

We pollute our rivers and mow down our trees.

And bring Mother Nature to humble knees.

And the gall to say, “An Act of God!”

Our sinful nature is what we applaud.

Sin City and what’s in it for me.

Glorifying Man and nailing Christ to a tree.

When it’s convenient,

It’s an act we are not responsible for.

We never think of the consequences

And what punishment is in store.

“An Act of God” and “Lake of Fire” is real.

The endless pain, the agony, we have every right to feel.

By Faith and Faith alone; and by His saving Grace

“An Act of God;” we decide which direction to face.
