Works by a Poet and Psalmist

'ONE ON ONE'

 

By Gene Johnson

Romans 12:1-3
 
Jesus said, ''but seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you''. To seek the Kingdom, is to first seek the King!
 
Our God is the one true God! Behold O Israel the Lord our God is one. He may reveal Himself in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit but even still they reveal themselves as One.
One in heart, one in mind, one in purpose! Jesus prayed for His people that they would be one, even as He and the Father were one. Unified in Spirit and in focus.
 
When a married couple reach that place of oneness it is only because the self-seeking and selfishness of individuality has willingly been left behind for a new sense of being. The two become as one! Even in marriage among men and women God is trying to tell us something powerful about Himself. Everything begins with and stems from intimacy!
 
It started in the garden of Eden with Adam. It continued on with Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, David and then on to Jesus Himself. Today in our lives it remains the same. All ministry must first come from us firstly becoming deeply acquainted with God our Father. Or that ministry is nothing but empty, dead religious activity. The first of the Ten Commandments must be obeyed or the other nine become somewhat irrelevant. ''I AM the Lord thy God, you shall have no other God before me''. We must put Him first and seek Him first above all else or all that we are pursuing is but meaningless chaff...blowing in the wind.

I WILL SEEK YOU EARLY
 
I WILL SEEK YOU FIRSTLY
 
I WILL SEEK YOUR KINGDOM
 
AND YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
 
I WILL GIVE YOU MY LIFE
 
I WILL GIVE UP MY SOUL
 
I WILL GIVE YOU MY ALL
 
TO LIVE IN YOUR HOLINESS
 
I WILL SET MY SOUL LIKE FLINT
 
SET MY SOUL ON PILGRIMAGE
 
I WILL FOLLOW HARD AFTER YOU
 
OFFER ALL I SAY AND DO
 
 
YOU ARE MY FIRST PRIORITY
 
YOU ARE MY GOD
 
YOUR # 1 WITH ME
 
THE ONE TRUE GOD
 
I FOLLOW FAITHFULLY
 
YOU'RE MY # 1...
