Right Standing


Try as we might
It eludes us;
Too great and too grand
For our frame.
This mortal flesh
Given to passions
And sin, ill-befitting
Your Name.
But still it’s our hope
To come closer.
You’ve said that we might
Through your Son.
For His is
A perfect obedience
What Law said
“This do”
Now is done.
Yes, done
By the Friend of all sinners,
And “Father forgive”
Was His plea.
And blood was
His ransom and rescue,
Sufficient to save
Even me.
What confidence comes
With the knowing,
That all faults and foibles
Are past.
And prayer and performance
Gain power
In Christ’s righteousness.
Now, that lasts!

Double-mindedness...What's That?


To listen to God in one ear and to the trends and wanderings of a hell-bent world in the other; to be consistently unsure of self; to miss the Lord’s smile; to sense the pollution of traitor in one’s being; to dodge repeatedly any serious considerations of the end game; to lack the revivifying dynamic of righteousness; to be miserable.

James 4: 8-10
