Abram - Abraham

Abram


Living in a land of lifeless gods
A growing restlessness that these gods can't do anything
The Living God spoke
Go and live in a country I will show you
Walking by faith in this Living Speaking God he cannot see
But knowing when He speaks you simply obey and go
Sarai, his wife, not knowing where to, but not frightened 
Holding onto His promise
that He is your guide, your source of Life
Protector and Provider
and by Knowing His Name
Putting her Trust in the Living God
Knowing she can run to this Living God for peace
and He never disappoints
May we be found with this same strong Faith in this same Most High God

King of Life


God created and blessed
Man disobeyed
Man separated from source of life - and died
God cursed creation with thorns
His great love send Himself, Jesus fully God and fully man
He took our curse
A crown of thorns placed on His head
As He takes our curse and sin on Himself
and died - so we can live
He creates in us a new heart
Now we who live through Him
Will honour Him who is crowned
The King of Life
