1 Corinthians 7:22 “For whoever is called as a servant is GOD’s freeman in our LORD. So also whoever is called as a freeman is a servant of The Messiah!”
The Captive’s Shouts!
By YOUR NAME we are changed and made new. By YOUR grace overcome we these trials of Life.
By YOUR cleansing, we sinners are surely transformed…by THY nail scarred hands, dearest CHRIST.
Though well known, how blessed these reminders. Yet Flesh often forgets YOUR truths sovereignly scribed!
So well know is YOUR WORD by this visionless clay, thus YOUR life within me provides sight!
Hence all praiseworthy gratitude owed YOU bleeds out through our voices with vigorous Zeal!
Fists clenched then thrust highest, Death’s prisoners pardoned…rejoice we unchained!
Our sentence — repealed!
As HIS freed bondservant joining with you uplifting shouts of praise to HIS NAME,
Devotional: Luke 4:18 “The SPIRIT of THE LORD JEHOVAH is upon me, and because of this HE has anointed me to preach The Good News to the poor; HE has sent me to heal broken hearts and to proclaim liberty to captives, vision to the blind, and to restore the crushed with forgiveness…”
We are all “visionless clay” as I referred to in the poem but GOD! When HE commands Light and Life to conquer our flesh, HIS slaves we become who can finally see! Freed then in truth to serve our MASTER!
Romans 6:22-23 “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to GOD, the fruit you reap leads to holiness, and the outcome is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.”
Such beautiful words, such unhindered and unchained blessing to be HIS! Eternally! And till then we must serve from our deepest hearts’ love reflecting the love of CHRIST.
So we shout through songs of great praise and gratitude to HIM WHOSE chains set us free!
Amen and amen!
