Another poem for you. This was written with Jonah 1:1-2 and Jonah 3:1 in mind. Jonah has been my Lenten preaching series this year. The focus tonight is the power of God’s Word, not man’s word, to save. To God be the glory!
The Word of the Lord is powerful;
It is holy, awesome and true.
The Word of the Lord is mighty,
It’s my Father making me new.
It is a word of redeeming love,
of a Savior who died for me.
It is a word for wayward sinners,
from our God who has set me free.
Your Word is mighty to save.
Your Word never fails.
Your Word is powerful;
it kills and it gives New Life.
Your Word is perfect and alive and thus there is nothing we can do to improve it.
They tinker and distort the Word;
making it something that it is not.
They turn it into a lifeless word;
useless for salvation.
may we as a Church be faithful with the Word;
proclaiming it in all its truth and purity.
May we always take heart and trust the power of Your Word;
rejoicing in the fact that the results of the Word are squarely in
Your mighty hands,
because it is about
In Jesus name I pray,
