THIS MAN FROM GALILEE

What would you do with Jesus, this man from Galilee
The One God sent to live on earth some
2000 years ago, that He might set mankind free.

What would you do with Jesus, this Man from Galilee?
Would you, like the Pharisees of old,
Who wanted to destroy the One who came to save our souls.

What would you do with Jesus, who taught so long ago
That all that came to Him would become a soul set free
that thru Him he might be saved,
which means even you and me.

Would you follow Him and become fishers of men?
Would you take up the cross, and follow the loving Savior
Where ‘ere He might lead
Or, would you be like the one who said,
“Master, I would follow thee, but suffer me first to go and bury my father.”

This Master we love who was sent from above,
Went about His Father’s business
He preached, taught, healed, restored to life again, also cast out devils
So, God’s Word says.
And many were added to the kingdom of heaven.

What would you do with Jesus the Son of the One true God?
Would you like Judas Iscariot, betray the Master
For thirty pieces of silver and end up hanging yourself.

Would you be in Pilate’s seat and washing his hands of Him
Hand Him over to be nailed to the Old Rugged Cross,
Or would you be the ones who laughed and jeered
at the One dying on that cruel tree.

What would you do with Jesus, the One there on the cross?
Would you be with them who knelt and clung there to the cross . . .
or would you be the centurion who said,
“Truly this was the Son of God.

Would you be a Joseph and lay Him in your tomb
A humble grave, for One died for you. . .
Would you go to the tomb on that early Easter morn’,
to find that He was risen.
Would you believe or would you scoff and say
“His disciples have stolen His body, for no one has ever risen.”

Would you believe it was really Him,
when you met in the upper room,
the Man from Galilee or would you be a doubting Thomas,
and ask proof of the wounds to see.

Would you be at Bethany when He ascended unto Heaven?
Would you praise God, would you return with joy?
Would you feed His Sheep? Would you do the will of God.?
Would you be with the twelve and others
When the Holy Spirit descended on them ~
Or would you go your merry way forgetting
What He did there on that cruel tree
This Son of God up in Heaven.

Yes, what would you do with Jesus,
Would you be like the disciples and apostles of old
Carry out the great commission
Would you risk what those have done down thru the ages,
as many were killed for their faith.
Yes, what would you do with Him?

So, friend, if you’re unhappy as you go along life’s way
Don’t nail dear Savior to the tree
But take the love of the Son up above and
Be a soul bound for heaven

What WILL YOU do with Jesus?
Why not try this Man of Galilee,
You’ll be glad you did,
and someday we can meet on the golden street in heaven ~
And because you gave your heart and life unto Him."

We serve a Risen Savior. . . He’s Alive!

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
