The Appearance of a Christian
The Appearance of a Christian (Click here for the voice of the Bible Poet)

“For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” Ephesians 2:8, 9
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who, for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Heb 12:2
He appears like a doctor with his black bag in hand
And all the equipment to get to the Promised Land;
The Word of the LORD; his compass and hope
Discipline and faith on Christ’s work to cope;
He studies God’s way, on a journey to see;
The finished work of the Cross for all eternity;
And then to the study, in, at the hall;
Stepping forward in faith; to Christ with his all;
This life is temporary, in an instant, it will fade.
To be clothed in God’s righteousness;
His way is made.
He looks like a doctor; he can only point the way;
Christ is the author and finisher of the faith;
His word does clearly say.
It’s all internal and Christ knows the heart.
He knows the motives; to only believe is our part.
