Animal, Plant and Mineral compares to Christ
By David Smith June 22, 2009
Animal, Plant and mineral
Illustrations of Christ we see
On every printed page illustrations for you and me.
Animal, plant and mineral, substance for all life
Christ is all and in all; all power and all might.
The animal: We see as the Lamb in the shedding of the blood
Meditate on His word as the chewing of the cud.
WE see it in the Lion and in the goats and sheep.
We hear it in God’s promises. They will always keep.
IN the plant kingdom like the vegetable; as a tender plant.
The branch, the vine, the bread from heaven.
The unleaven bread was sent.
Mineral: he is the rock, the solid foundation of the Church.
Gold and precious stones; His righteousness we search.
The perfect stones; the perfect sacrifice, to worship and believe.
Through one man’s disobedience all mankind was deceived.
Though one man’s perfection; His finished work is there for all.
By faith, and faith alone; His word is free for all.
