SUNDAY POST: LIGHT

My selection for Jakesprinter Sunday Post Challenge was pulled from my archive of photos taken back in 2010.  I hope you enjoy it.

WHAT IS THE CHURCH?

I think that I shall never see

A church that’s all it ought to be;

A church whose members never stray

Beyond the straight and narrow way;

A church that have no empty pews,

Whose pastor never has the blues;

A church whose elders always speak,

And none is proud and all are meek.

Such perfect churches there may be,

But none of them are known to me.

But still, we’ll work and pray and plan

To make our own the best we can.

“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!

  1. This is not only a beautiful post, with a beautiful message, Francine. It is also a beautiful example of light (in more ways than one). Great job! 🙂

  2. Hi Francine, yes you will see a Godly Church, it is you and me, it’s the unity of God’s Children who He has know from Eternity, all those who would come to heart repentance, who would seek Him with all their heart and be Born again of His seed, Holy and perfected in Love and their in every denomination all around the World, in every home Church and where two or three are joined together in His name they are in nursing homes and hospitals, they are everwhere.

    Christian Love Anne.
