Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

I See Jesus

I See Jesus

I saw Jesus last week.
He was wearing blue jeans and an old shirt.
He was up at the church building;
He was alone and working hard.
For just a minute he looked a little like one of our members.
But it was Jesus...I could tell by His smile.

I saw Jesus last Sunday.
He was teaching a Bible class.
He didn't talk real loud or use long words,
But you could tell He believed what He said.
For just a minute, He looked like my Bible teacher.
But it was Jesus.... I could tell by His loving voice.

I saw Jesus yesterday.
He was at the hospital visiting a friend who was sick.
They prayed together quietly.
For just a minute he looked like Brother Jones.
But it was Jesus...I could tell by the tears in His eyes.

I saw Jesus this morning.
He was in my kitchen making my breakfast
and fixing me a special lunch.
For just a minute He looked like my mom.
But it was Jesus...I could feel the love from His heart.

I see Jesus everywhere,
Taking food to the sick...
Welcoming others to His home, Being friendly to a newcomer...
& for just a minute, I think He's someone I know.
But it's always Jesus...I can tell by the way he serves.

"The Beauty Of Jesus"

          "The Beauty Of Jesus"

 Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity;
O Thou Spirit divine, May I truly be Thine
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.

Let my wonderful Saviour be seen in me,
His amazing compassion and constancy;
His great love is my goal, By His Spirit's control
Till my wonderful Saviour be seen in me.

Let the fruit of the Spirit be seen in me,
Grant me grace all sufficient that I may be
True and faithful each day, Every step of the way,
Pointing souls to the Saviour on Calvary
