In Service to the Lord By Brenda Drake

John 12:25-26
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

In Service to the Lord

Pointed in the right direction, with eyes focused on the goal;
Self is laid aside and God is in control.
Others become more important as God has designed.
Your life is offered in service as you give God your time,
You have heard it is more blessed to give than to receive;
The truth is when you give you will get more than you need.
The world’s way and God’s way are worlds apart;
The world reasons with the mind and God reasons with the heart.
The world demands more with self and greed in control,
God’s way says when you give to you more from Him overflows.
The kind heart is poured out with love to their fellow man,
With an understanding, open mind, and with a generous open hand.
Jesus is the example He laid His life down,
To prepare the way so salvation could be found.
He gave His all for the fallen race,
So that they too would know the Father’s sweet embrace.
His undeserved favor we will eternally thank Him for.
What a great honor to be use on earth to serve the Lord.

Love with Your Life By Brenda Drake

Many times I have wanted to give more, and to do more than I could.  I would begin to feel nothing I did or said was ever enough. But one day in frustration I cried Lord I don’t have anything to give but my life.  That was the one thing that honors and pleased Him the most. We love Him with our life.

Love with Your Life

Even if we don’t have anything of great value to bestow,
In the wealth of silver or gold;
What we value and have we can bring.
Offer your Lord everything.
Our heart Lord, our home, and our family
All we are now and all we ever will be,
We only have this day Lord to offer to You;
All we say and all we will do
In obedience we prove our love for our King.
We offer to Him every song we sing
Each breath is a gift of life You give to set us free.
We will love You with our life eternally
We are seeped in Your favor from every side,
For You bless, lead and guide and call us Your bride.
We love You with our life …it is true
For in Your sweet Spirit we breathe and continuously move.

Matthew 13:44
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Acts 17:28
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
