The Love of God

Seashore

The Love of God
By Frederick M. Lehman 1917

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

The saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.

God is Love. He is holy and just, by his power we trust in His love. Or do we? The holy and just God of Love sent the flood, established the Law and will come in judgment of sin. Do we understand that the God of Love is at same time Holy and Just?
The Puritans are condemned as prudes, yet our generation has brought the world into the Church and thrown holiness out.

“Take Words with You … ” Mary C. Findley

king of glory 25

“Take words with you and return to the Lord.  Say to Him, “Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously, that we may present the fruit of our lips.” Hosea 14:2

Coming soon — a book for Christian writers about Christian writing.

This book is about how to prepare to be a writer, how to write, and lots of my thoughts and opinions on what you should and shouldn’t write about. Although opinions are like noses – everybody has one, and some of them smell – My opinions are based on decades of reading, writing, and studying what makes Christian writing Christian.
The title of this book should make clear my purpose for writing it, and all the others I have written or will write. I used to think I could write cool stuff and not worry about the message, but the message of glorifying God, of honoring His Word, and of communicating truth, even in fiction, is overpowering. The Scripture verse on the cover is a recent discovery. The context is Israel’s need to repent, but my, oh my, isn’t this what we need to do before we write a word? Don’t we need to take our words to God, to ask Him to purify them, to accept what we offer Him, as if it was that sweet savor He loves in the Old Testament sacrifices? Wow. To think that our books can be our fruit. It’s humbling. It’s terrifying. But God asks us to bear fruit, so let’s see what we need to do to get on with it.
