My Chains Are Gone
My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of people; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth - J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)

A Servant Nation

What if God chose for His Own
a unique servant nation?
Would their purpose still remain
to serve on earth in His name…or
is this now a forgotten oblation?

If God did choose a people –
how might they be seen (as) ‘apart’?
Surely they would follow Him,
walk after and obey Him?
Imperfect, but, dear to God’s heart.

How can we find these servants?
Where does God say we should look?
If Christ’s truth be our master,
we can soon find our answer
in God’s Holy Book.

True, we’ll often discover
far more questions than answer,
nonetheless, we must persist:
no painful truth we resist
when cherished beliefs waiver.

Do we question God’s Kingdom?
Who can tell us? Isaiah?
Shall we query salvation?
Look deep in Revelation.
The lost sheep found? So says Hosea!

Does God keep His promises?
Can His people trust their KING?
Through the First Covenant and Last
does the Holy Word stand fast?
“Yes!” declare the age-old hymns we sing.

God’s servants are manifest – their Way undeniable:
a peculiar people in truth, kith and relation
shall prove the Lord God infallible.
