COMMUNION COMMUNICATION

We gather together at His table,
As often as we can or are able.
On the first and the fifteenth,
Once or twice every month!

We gather together as a community,
To commemorate Him as one family,
We partake in a simple communion,
To celebrate Him in a holy union!

We gather together to REMEMBER,
His death and His resurrection,
That made us each a member,
Of His Body by His wonderful affection!

We gather together to solemnly REPENT,
Of evil ways and wrong intent,
We constantly need to reorient,
To Him one hundred percent!

We gather together to RECOMMIT,
Our lives in humble surrender,
To live according to His holy writ,
And to honor His saving splendor!

We gather together to RECONCILE,
With one another and not be juvenile,
We need to just forgive one another,
For we belong to the same Father!

We gather together to RENEW,
Our covenant with Him anew,
He will give us a needed breakthrough,
When we always keep this in view!

We gather together once again,
Around His table time and again,
He will REFRESH us with His gentle rain,
Until He comes to rule and reign!

GROOMING

Some need time to don their dresses
Others need it to comb their tresses!
Some need to have constant facials,
Others need what’s in the commercials!

Some like their pants creased well
Others like their ears pierced with jewel!
Some like to have nice high heels,
Others like to have great new wheels!

One thing surely is true and clear
We all love to look decent and have some flair.
Nothing wrong in taking enough care,
To see how well you look and do appear!

Only just don’t stop right there,
And consider only what to wear!
But spend time in constant prayer,
Grooming yourself to be God’s heir!

Read the Word to know His mind,
Reflect & meditate even in daily grind.
Take time to constantly renew your mind,
Wait on the Lord to rise like eagles in the wind!

Number your days for there’s coming an end,
Prepare to meet your God along with His kind.
Be filled with the Spirit to repent and transcend,
This is how you can earn eternal dividend!

Care not just for whether you’re clothed in mink or pink,
Life is not all about just what you eat or drink.
Dress yourself with linen white and pure,
Groomed and ready to meet Him in the mid air!
