Together We Can

We are one body made up of many parts.
More helpers always make light work.
There is but one God and one Spirit.
Working through us, He will use us.
Unity of purpose, seeking more of Him.
Searching for the lost, counting the cost.
Praying for growth, feeding on the word.
Serving the Lord, all in one accord.
Together we all can reach every man.
Lips that praise, hands quick to serve.
Feet swift to spread God’s good news.
This church has but one foundation.
The chief cornerstone is Jesus Christ.
We are brothers and sisters in the Lord.
He gives us power to live in one accord.
Together we can unite and Satan fight.
Aspire, we will grow, for together we can!

Corinthians 2:10 - 12  -  “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no-one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

Just One Hour

What can you list to do with just one hour?
Fill your mind with songs and feel God’s power.
You can pray for the sick, give alms to the poor.
And still have time left to praise God more!
Take time to really listen to someone in need.
Then go ahead and perform a “secret deed”.
Get out God’s Holy Word and read awhile.
Read lifting passages that will make you smile.
When the Spirit speaks you respond to His call.
Remember, if Jesus is the supreme Lord of all.                  
All your hours can be readily used by Him.
To waste time on foolish things really is a sin.
To use an hour that is led by God’s Spirit
Extends that time because God is in it!

Zephaniah 3: 14 - 20     
“The Lord your God is in your midst, the Mighty One will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love; He will rejoice over you with singing.”
