Black Coffee

Scripture Text

Psalm 119:l40 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease

Revelation 22: 18 – 19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out o the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

He drinks his coffee black for the full flavoured brew;

Adding cream and sugar, a taste that is not so true;

Similar to scriptures: to study, believe and grow;

Adding to His Word; Man’s way we get to know.

Coffee without additives, a pure clear taste

The Bible without opinion; God’s Word to truly embrace;

Philosophy and opinion to be kept outside the camp;

Trusting God’s Holy Word; the pure oil in the lamp.

A coffee black is symbolic, and neither here nor there;

But God’s Holy Word; Purity to share;

Do not dilute or add, Man’s sweetness to taste;

The Perfect will of God;

His way, through trials, to embrace.
