The Living Water

The living water

May 30, 2010 by David Smith

The children’s story came to light;

As a man spoke of what it important in our daily life;

From computer games to gadgets the students had a say;

On what is important on this fine Lord’s Day.

And needs changed; as in famine we come to know;

And Water and thirst as new desires start to grow.

The students taste the water in bottles at the front.

One was dry and empty; a vacuum that we shunt.

One was full of water and the salt applied;

Would not satisfy a thirst, our bodies would have died.

One was full of pepper to symbolize the sin;

The pleasures of the world and how Satan can entre in.

One was clear as water but vinegar was inside.

Think of the bitter water that God purified.

Then to think of Christ, the well will not go dry.

O the living water, his word to satisfy.

The pleasures of the Lord satisfy the taste;

O to hear the story; filled by his loving grace.

The Riches of His Glory

The Riches of His Glory

By David Smith October 1, 2007

The Riches of His Glory (Click for voice of the Bible Poet)

Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy and eat: yea, come, buy wine and milk without money, and without price.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and become obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth: and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

John 14: 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; That the man of God may be perfect thoroughly finished unto all good works.

Income is froze, now, to do more with less

The Word of the LORD is my only guess

Come buy without money; thy Word is free

To study and memorize throughout eternity

Believe with thine heart and thou shalt be saved

Obedience, the concrete, His highway is paved

Less materiel, more blessings, so study thy WORD

Character of Christ revealed and assured

He did not own a home and around villages he walked

The sacred writings were everything he taught

Through humble beginnings to be King of all Kings

Its riches in heaven what poverty may bring

Income is froze, will do more with less

The riches of Christ

We will be blessed.

A Deceitful Heart

By David Smith May 2, 2010

Inspired at a Gospel Meeting

Text References:

Jer 17:9 “The Heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Ecc 9:3 “…also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live.”

Ps 7:4 “Lift up your heads,  O ye gates; and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.”

Isa 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteous-nesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Deceitful and wicked, my heart, that we hear;

To give it to Christ; my filthy nature does appear.

Nothing within ourselves we can genuinely give;

He gave it ALL so our souls may live.

It’s, all total, He gave at the Cross, on the *Hill;

To only accept it, is my greatest thrill.

We receive a new heart when we accept Christ at the *door.

Feeding on His Word, a new life we explore.

He is the way, the truth and the life;

He gives us a new heart, filled by the pure light.

*Hill refers to the finished work of the Cross at Calvary
