Ezekiel 39:1-40:27;  James 2:18-3:18;  Psalm 118:1-18;  Proverbs 28:2

“Who is wise and understanding among you?  By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.  But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and  be false to the truth.  This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.  For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practices.  But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.  And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”  James 3:13-18

The Blood of the Lamb

pure and simple

cleanses my heart,

sin-riddled and dark,

pumps His goodness

and righteousness

through my veins;

pumps His life-blood,

His mercy and grace

keeps me alive

in Him.

Alive to bear fruit,

good works to do,

helping my neighbor

speak truth in love.

Sowing seeds of peace

in a restless land.

The Blood of the Lamb,

pure and simple

changes hearts,

changes lives.

God, grant peace,

true peace in You

to every man.

Amen.
