A Sunday Club CD has filled our house with sunshine
16/01/2013

Some wonderful person up in the north of England sent a CD and how I wish I could put it on the web for everyone to hear!  It is the children in the Sunday School of Morecombe Full Gospel Church singing and, it seems to fill the house with sunshine.

One track features their innocent young voices singing the Ten Commandments and it goes:

You shall have no other gods before me

Nor to an idol shall you bow the knee

You shall not take the Lord God’s name in vain

Remember the Sabbath it’s God’s holy day 

Honor your parents

You shall not kill

Be faithful in marriage for this is God’s will 

You shall not steal

Nor false witness bear

Of coveting always beware

I cannot listen to it without bowing my guilty head and thanking the Lord for the ton of mercy He had on me.  So many people I talk to think they are OK, and not sinners at all.  At least I never had that problem!  I knew with no doubt whatsoever that I was a sinner and where I deserved to go.

Do you think you are OK and God will just wave you into Heaven?  It's not like that at all!  Jesus said: 'I am the way (to Heaven), the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.'  

In John 3:3 He says:  'Except a man be born again, he cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven.'

Christianity is so radical that you cannot even be in it unless you are 'born again', meaning born spiritually, made anew, created afresh inside by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Being born again is something personal, and in my case, quiet, private, just between God and me.  I didn't 'feel' anything creepy.  I just knew deep down that Jesus was God and I was going to follow Him regardless.  Being born anew is something between you and Jesus, something He will do in the heart of anyone who sincerely puts their faith and trust in Him. 

If you still think you are OK, please check yourself out against those simple 10 Commandments. 

Did you faithfully keep No 1, no other gods before Jesus? Or did other things take first place in your life?  They certainly did in mine!   Dong!  Failed that one.

Number Two?  No idols, no bowing the knee to statues?  Dong!  Failed that one too.  I often knelt in front of the statue of Mary in the Catholic Church of St Andrews where I grew up in St Louis, Missouri.  Maybe a movie star was your idol, or a new car or a beautiful house?  People from India have china cabinets full of little idol statues which they pray to.  Time to chuck out the idols! 

How about Commandment Number Three - God's name?  Dong!  Failed that one countless times.  People today, especially women, constantly say:  'Oh my G-d' as an expletive.  When I point out that they are using God's name in vain, they are surprised and, strangely, they usually say it again because it is their way of expressing surprise!  God's name is holy!  This is a serious matter, but nitwits on television are constantly misusing His holy name, and undiscerning people just copy that.  It is .... vile.

That is only the first three.  James tells us in the Bible that if we offend against even one commandment, we have broken them ALL, because the Mosaic Law is one solid entity.  All or nothing.  

That is why the Bible confidently tells us 'All have fallen short of the glory of God.'  All are guilty.  All need a Savior.  Even Jesus' mother indicated that she needed a Savior!  We are fallen people in a fallen world, and thank God for sending Jesus to die for all our sins.  He is our only hope!

Won't you kneel down wherever you are and ask Jesus to forgive your sins today?  I did in 1981 and it is a prayer that I believe He will always answer.  I begged Him to forgive me, and to make me one of His people.  I knew I was guilty and had no other hope.  From that night I have belonged to Him!  He will forgive you, wash you clean, and make you one of His people by baptizing you with His Holy Spirit.  You may not feel a thing; I didn't. In fact I thought He would never want me.  But although that (false) thought made me sad, I also thought: 'Even if He doesn't want me, I love Him and I am going to follow Him forever.'

It was only later after I searched for a church, kept reading the Bible and talking to Christians that I learned with the utmost delight that Jesus always answers that heartfelt prayer of repentance!   He died for sinners!  Even me! And even you.

Anyway, I love the CD and the voices of the children.  It made me said that I grew up in a Catholic church  and we had no children's music at all.  How dumb.  I'm now hearing it for the first time in my 60s and I love it!  Anyway I looked up the Morecombe church which made the CD and here is their pastor, Chris Brough, talking about being a disciple of Jesus

And here is an eye opener on their website, talking about Joyce Meyer and Creflo Dollar (please don't send them any of your hard earned dollars; they are already  rich - they should  be sending you money!)

And although I don't know how to put the children's CD on our website, I can print out the words of the songs for you.  Someone has worked very hard with these children, and I for one really appreciate it.  Here are the words, plus two extra songs I have added. 

Good news! Good news! Christ died for me.

Good news! Good news! If I believe;

Good news! Good news! I'm saved eternally. That's wonderful EXTRA good news.

(Second Verse) Good news! Good news! Christ lives for me.

Good news! Good news! He prays for me.

His Word tells that He'll come again for me. That's wonderful EXTRA good news!

 

John 3:16

E  for enjoying  His company

 

For God so loved the world He gave His only Son

That whoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life

Matt 7:24-27 

The wise man built his house upon the rock 3X

And the rain came tumbling down

 

The rain came down and the floods came up 3X

And the house on the rock stood firm

 

The foolish man built his house upon the sand 3X

And the rain came tumbling down

 

The rain came down and the floods came up

And the house on the sand fell flat

 

So build your life on the Lord Jesus Christ   3X

And the blessings will come down

 

The  prayers  go up and the blessings come down 3X

So build your house on the Lord

 How did Moses cross the Red Sea? 
How did Moses cross the Red Sea?
 How did Moses cross the Red Sea? 
How did he get across?

 Did he swim?  No, No
 Did he row?    No, No
 Did he jump?     No, No  No, No
 Cross a bridge?    No, No
 Did he fly?   No, No
 How did he get across?

God blew with His wind, 
puff, puff,puff,puff,
 He blew just enough, 
nough,nough,nough,nough,
 And through the sea, God made a path, 
That’s how he got across

Praise God!

Mr Noah built an ark

The people thought it such a lark

Mr Noah pleaded so

But into the ark they would not go

 

Down came the rain in torrents (splish splash) 3X

And only 8 were saved

 

The animals went in 2 by 2

The elephant giraffe and  kangaroo

All were safely stowed away

On that great and awful day

 

Down came the rain in torrents (splish splash) 3X

And only 8 were saved

 

Whenever you see a rainbow 3X

Remember God is love. 

John 3:16

For God so loved the world

He gave His only Son

That whoever believes in Him

Shall not die but have eternal life

 

L is for the love that He has for me

I am the reason He died on the tree

F is forgiveness and now I am free

E is   enjoyment in His company

The worship leader at our church and I were so impressed by this CD that we are trying to make a little songbook of it for our Sunday School.  Fortunately she has the technical skill to make it come out right on proper pages, with songs on both sides of the page.  God gives us all different gifts, maybe so more of us can gain rewards by contributing whatever it is that we can do!
