SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS



The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

SEEDS OF STRIFE

RICH MAN/POOR MAN/HEAVEN/HELL

JESUS IS MISSING

PERFECT VERSUS IMPERFECT

ABBA FATHER

THE UNDERDOG

BROKEN CRAYONS

TEN LOCKS

SOLDIERS

THE MYSTERY OF THE KHATAN

THE RETURN

PORTRAIT OF A PREACHER

THE RAVEN

THE MYSTERY OF MASADA

THE MEASURE OF FAITH

OMEGA JOY

It Is A Matter Of The Heart

 
We have all heard of this saying...
It really isn't something new...
But for believers in the God-Man...
The heart asures us this is true.
 
And there are many more believers
Than just simply you or I.
For we are not the only ones
For whom the Savior chose to die.
 
Pentecostals and Charismatics,
Catholics, Baptists, Nazarenes,
Presbyterians and the Lutherans
And so many in between.
 
Yes, He offers all salvation...
He will not turn one away.
Those who truly will serve Jesus
Are made welcome every day.
 
Although doctrines may all differ...
Are all hearts in one accord?
Because it's a matter of the heart
For those who truly love the Lord.
 
Does everyone believe that His
Was not an average normal birth?
That God used a virgin and the Holy Ghost
To bring The Word made flesh to earth?
 
Does everyone believe He died
For the sins of all mankind?
  Was resurrected on the third day?
 He was both human and divine?
 
Do all believe He'll soon return
To judge the living and the dead?
The Bible clearly says He will...
Is this what all of you have read?
 
If anyone believes this way,
Than I must consider them a brother...
For God calls for His family
To support and love each other.
 
In Luke 9 verses 49 and 50
We read where the Lord corrected
His disciples for forbidding one
Whom had not been pre-selected
 
          As part of their group, yet apparently
Had been using the Lord's Name.
Christ said, "those not against are for us"
So shouldn't we believe the same?
 
We should still observe these words
He spoke in stunning clarity.
For some other born again believer
May not see things as you and me.
 
Yet if he does believe the basics...
If he is focused on The Cross...
Believes Jesus died and rose again...
Who are we to count him lost?
 
 The salvation plan is still the same...
 It is a world wide work of art...
Painted by a loving Father
And it is a matter of the heart.

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it
 are the issues of life” (Prov. 4:23).
 
Jeremiah 29:13 “And you will seek Me and find Me,
when you search for Me with all your heart.”
 
Romans 10:9-10 “that if you confess with your mouth
 the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God
 has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with
 the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the
 mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
