TEL GEZER

Canaanite despots, condemned by God
Controlling the Via Maris, ethics ruled by idols
They can’t talk, might makes right

A civil code that disdains rights, you thought you had God on a string
Slaughtering people young and old, the leaders held absolute control
One day judgment came, Gezer was no more

It is the same old sin story, people sin beyond measure
Their sinful state comes before God, The Lord says enough
They never know what hit, they just fall apart and disappear

A word for us, what ever feels good is a death chant
You are never out of God`s view, our questions don’t trouble The Lord
He isn’t negotiating morality, His law stands and what we do will be judged

LIVING LIKE JESUS (LK 2:39-52)

Jesus lived under the same stresses and challenges we face
Yet He committed no sin, did what only HE could do
HE died for my sin, each sin, every sin,
Sin is ugly and evil, it separates us from the Lord
Jesus lets us know that God loves us so much that He will be our Father

Every male Jew was required by law to go to Jerusalem three times a year
Passover, Pentecost and Sukkot
Because of the distance by foot most only went to Jerusalem once a year
The village went for safety and to celebrate all the way from Nazareth to Megiddo
The Lord is long suffering, how about you?

Jesus love and honored His parents
He was fully man and fully God and did no sin
Yet God heard and still He loves us
As we plot for the moment not seeing the magnitude of sin in our life
Lord only your GRACE is sufficient- I will strive to follow you

Jesus equips us for three dimensions, His Word trains us the way we should go
My life was hard but nothing like the difficulties of the world
God is our Father and we are His children, and as such we are
Cleanse me of unrighteous and self-centered living
I want to move away from foolish living – Help me walk in your ways

The Lord is at the center of every situation in life
He is equipped to help each one of us See Jesus
We trust Him for every situation
The only person I am responsible for is me
Help me Lord to connect with the Holy Spirit

I would do what I have purposed to do, but it isn’t bathed in truth
Only God is good therefor from the depths of my soul I am praying
For safety, protection, wisdom, mercy and grace for you each on and everyone
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it
Father train me in the way I should go, YOU know everything
