The Greatest Danger (Acts 4)

The greatest danger to our life of prayer,
Is finding comfort and complacency.
It’s easier to act like you don’t care,
Then face the scoffing bullies fearlessly.
Yet when we wade into the war of faith,
And take our stand proclaiming Jesus Christ,
Be certain we will suffer grief and pain.
The world will ostracize us through this life.
Yet when our persecution presses hard,
We’re forced to see our insufficiency.
Then we will turn to Jesus as our guard,
To fight for us and give us energy.
Let troubles turn you to the Lord we claim,
And in His power let us preach His name.

Come, Come to Jesus (Acts 2)

All you devoted in your faith,
You very wise in earthly ways,
Come, come to Jesus
All you of knowledge well possessed,
And those with scripture’s truths impressed,
Come, come to Jesus.

And all you from your ethnic berth,
Of every tongue and tribe on earth,
Come, come to Jesus.
You Jews and Arabs, Greek and Hun,
Tibetan, Celt, and Amazon,
Come, Come to Jesus.

And all you bent by Babel’s cares,
And worried by your worldly wares,
Come, Come to Jesus.
All you distracted by the curse,
Who look to food, or sword, or purse,
Come, come to Jesus

All you ensnared by all your sin,
Who are among the worst of men,
Come, come to Jesus.
All you who live in mankind’s dark,
Who have an unrepentant heart,
Come, come to Jesus.

And you oppressed by various woes,
Afflicted by your flesh or foes,
Come, come to Jesus.
All you who see rebellion’s weight,
Who understand what you must pay,
Come, come to Jesus.

All you who crucified the Christ,
Who sold your souls to Satan’s lies,
Come, come to Jesus.
Redeemed, condemned, you rich, you poor,
You righteous, sinner, chaste, or whore,
Come, come to Jesus.

King’s Orders (Acts 1:1-5)

You do not choose what you were called to do.
The one who calls, the King, commands to you.
He issued orders, and you must obey,
No matter what excuses you may say.
But you are called to share the Gospel news,
If you the Holy Spirit has infused,
For God has named us witness to His word,
So we must preach the message we have heard.
Then trust in Him, for He empowers you,
To do His work and preach that precious news.
God works through weakness just as you or me,
To summon son into eternity.
