Pastor’s Pen for Sunday, June 23, 2019

“Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified you to share in the 
inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light…”  Colossians 1:12


In our human strength, we’ve tried and tried,
But by His grace, we are now qualified!
Enabled to enjoy that incredible place,
Standing with Jesus through amazing grace!

When the doors of life all seem to close,
And we feel completely surrounded by foes,
This is time to give thanks in prayer,
For God has qualified us His riches to share!

For you see it’s not about how we feel,
It’s not about getting the best deal,
It comes down to who God says we are,
Qualified, beloved, in Christ going far…

Far above our circumstance,
Not some victim of happenstance,
On the ballroom floor, with Him we dance,
See your reflection in God’s glance!

For you are the “apple of His eye”,
Cherished and cleansed, for you He did die!
So why do you doubt and ask Him “why?”
By faith you now qualify!

Qualify, to find strength to stand,
Qualify, to hold the Savior’s hand,
Qualify, to live in His rest,
Qualify, to experience God’s best!

Believe it, Jesus was crucified
So through Him we can be qualified!
