Inspired by Breaking of Bread Service

Inspired by Breaking of Bread Service
By David Smith July 5, 2015

Oven, pan and Frying pan, Windows in the Lord’s life
Where we can see growth of Christianity and might
The first glimpse of the Lord, shepherds all around
Born in a stable, in a humble life, he was found
The second window, the glimpse to appear
When the wise men came to worship him here
And down to Egypt to get out of Herod’s way
For Herod started eliminating children that very day

And then to a time when Christ could read
And taught the Rabbis spiritual need
Special observations from the glimpse in the oven door
What God the Father had for us in store
Then the glimpse of the Blood Stained Cross
And the Empty Tomb as eternal life comes across
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
And development of Christianity as his light brightly shone
From the oven door and glimpses to see
What the sacrifices in Leviticus are telling me.

My Bible

My Bible
December 7, 2007

My Bible, God’s Word, tattered and worn
Opened and closed in the wee hours of the morn
The Bible, well used, as pages they turn
Being chiselled in the heart, the scriptures we learn

A battered Bible, Faith says it all
Newness of life, a new birth as we crawl
Then to stand on God’s Word as we shout
It is finished, the Cross, what the Gospel is about

The bible, tattered, well worn, and read
Opened and shut, the Old Nature we dread

The Time Line

The Time Line (Inspired September 12, 2007)

A time line we heard last night

Structure to history, things in order so right

As the world sees importance, tombstone and date

Progression of time as growth has a rate

A new time line as scriptures hit hard

From the Second Birth, as Christ Jesus is in charge

Being Born again as death looses it’s sting

Eternal security in everything.

A new time line as we are fed by his Word

Another dimension where eternity is assured

To grow in Christ, in trials and difficulties too

Not be ashamed of what God can do

The time line from God to measure growth by his way

What a message I got that day

The Grand Piano Compares to Grand Salvation

The Grand Piano Compares to Grand Salvation
By David Smith April 6, 2014

The piano, a story, as it misses a few notes;
Looks like a masterpiece, but the keys are not what the Master wrote.
What a luster finish, the Grand Piano on display
The climax of the showcase, it’s the inside that gets in the way

Can relate to the piano so grand
How to speak and take a firm stand
But it’s the heart that may be out of tune
What the public does not see, can make the Lord God fume

The cost of repair for the piano that day
An honest evaluation, what the appraiser had to say
It’s not the piano and how the music is grand
It’s my relationship with Christ where my sin is at hand

O to measure the standard of God
The Ten Commandments; where my righteousness is flawed
An honest evaluation before judgement day
The finished work of the Cross, what the Redeemer did pay

He did it all to put me in tune
The good news of the Gospel where a new creation can bloom
We are His workmanship in His Second birth
He paid the cost when he came to this Earth.

By grace are ye saved though faith alone
We are His workmanship
He sits on the Royal Throne.
O the Cross, where sin is washed away
Cleansed by His Blood for the Judgement day

From Egyt to Canaan: What a Walk!

From Egypt to Canaan What a Walk!

A Series of meetings

 

Seeing the BIBLE as a mirror at a glance

To meditate on the WORD to the present NOT by Chance

How it fits is revel lent to today

From Egypt to Canaan much room to pray

To focus on God in this wilderness of mine

And leave temptations of Satan behind

It happened to the Jews to be lost no doubt

From Egypt to Canaan Heavenly lessons came about

What a joy with all its trials

Walking his way there is reason to smile.

 

 

Meditating on the Red Sea

(While drinking coffee on Break)

He drinks his coffee black and thinks of worldly trials

Like the ten plagues in Egypt

What the world or pharaoh did despise

Moses rod turned into a serpent and ate the Pharaoh’s snakes

The serpent was first mentioned where the Garden was at stake

God turned dust to lice, and what did it imply?

The magicians could not match it, last night we found out why.

God created man from the dust of the ground.

The Creator created life, Satan’s light was never found.

So we have temptations and trials in this land

To leave this cultured world

In the Heavenlies to stand.

So the Jewish Journey from Egypt we can see

In this present world what God’s WORD is telling me

So to Cling to Scripture; God’s Lesson there in life,

For forty years of wondering turns me toward the light.

 

The Manna

The manna the bread from heaven no doubt

Christ is the true bread

His WORD does shout

Exquisite pictures of Christ in Glory

The parables on earth speak of the Bible story.

Everything points to the Old Rugged Tree

Pictures of Christ fascinated to see

Studying His WORD the Work of the Cross

To Know I’m a sinner and no reason to be lost.

Christ died for Me the verses are clear

The Good News of the bible is reason to cheer

Not only the Manna but the Rock smitten twice

Moses lost entry to the Promised Land so nice

It was clear to Moses to speak to the Rock

When He hit that boulder, disaster struck

He got results but God’s Pattern took a turn

Moses and our obedience have to learn.

Stick to God’s pattern and pray and obey.

God’s Word speaks to me

It has something to say.

The Red Sea

 

The Red Sea, a body, not moving and still

A picture of the Lord Jesus, established what a thrill.

As Moses held his staff and the parting of the sea

A commandant a judgement an illustration we can see

And the crossing of the Jordan, a river that moves

Divided from Adam, the city set the groove

The Israelites cross with the Ark of the Covenant possessing.

The Lord is with them as our walk is professing.

Their difficulties and set backs were for our learning.

What’s in it for today, our passion is burning.

All these pictures from Egypt to Canaan

How they fit together, greater knowledge, the explaining.

So study the pattern from the First books of the Lord

Fulfilled in the New our understanding has soared.

Week of Ministry in Review

Week of Ministry in Review
June 15, 2013
By David Smith Inspired by Gospel Hall Preaching

Christ in you, Hope in Glory
Romans Fifteen, the text for the story
Pleasing God infirmities of the weak
These that are strong a mission to teach
Building up believers in Christ we can see
He pleased not himself and an encouragement he be
We have to do what God saved us for
To strengthen believers
The assembly is in store
We have to endure step forward in trust
Past time for our learning
Faith is so much.

From Egypt to Canaan
A Series of meetings

He grasps the WORD one line at a time
Meditates on scripture as it fits into rhyme
Seeing the BIBLE as a mirror at a glance
To meditate on the WORD to the present NOT by Chance
How it fits is revel lent to today
From Egypt to Canaan much room to pray
To focus on God in this wilderness of mine
And leave temptations of Satan behind
It happened to the Jews to be lost no doubt
From Egypt to Canaan Heavenly lessons came about
What a joy with all its trials
Walking his way there is reason to smile.

Meditating on the Red Sea
(While drinking coffee on Break)

He drinks his coffee black and mediates on the Red Sea
How Moses came across to Canaan, there he be
He drinks his coffee black and thinks of worldly trials
Like the ten plagues in Egypt
What the world or pharaoh did despise
Moses rod turned into a serpent and ate the Pharaoh’s snakes
The serpent was first mentioned where the Garden was at stake

His Workmanship

His Workmanship

By David Smith November 26, 2009

 

Jaws like teeth as it smashes and shakes

A building hammered to the ground, the progress it makes

Shoveled into a truck the rubble and grind

Only a memory that is left behind.

 

Earth movers hit hard, mighty machines of steel

Hydraulic lifts and turntable to wheel

All the technology to tear down a place

Think of the hope, new life we can face.

 

An earthen vessel as vulnerable as I

Subjected to sin, circumstances make me cry.

To be rebuilt, after we’re broken and torn;

A spiritual house, living stones are reborn.

 

A living hope and gloriously appearing

To be in Christ, this world is deceiving.

Rebuilt, a new, living stones I dare say

Being torn down though sin and decay

 

Born again, not of corruption and lies

It’s the spirit within, Christ’s workmanship thrives.

That is the Message, believe and repent

For the Love of the World Jesus was sent.
