Come & See

Never was there a better line
Spoken in evangelism more fine
Than the advice Philip gave
His friend Nathaniel which was
‘Come and see’-with no option to decline
It is easy to sit on criticism’s pony
And flash the whip of hell’s satire
To gallop away to regions of doubt
It is more noble though to dismount
Change course and get off the high horse
To find out the cause of the fuss
And why the eagles are gathered thus
So Nathaniel did by walking back
With Philip To meet the Word in Person
He came and saw and believed
Criticize not from afar-what a lesson

Spirit Leads To The Water

Cornelius and friends received the Spirit
After which the preacher – Peter now said
Water baptism was the next meal of Bread
Cornelius did not demur or murmur or dread
For Spirit feeds on every crumb of the Word
And strains to fulfill all sayings of the Lord
Same Spirit led Philip to Ethiopian Eunuch
Puzzled by Isaiah’s prophecy about Messiah
Philip expounded till the noble demanded
Immediate action-immersion for remission
No ceremony for Spirit was in harmony with Word
It behooves the Spirit-led man or woman today
To turn the Chariot of faith to water’s strait gate
The contrary is backing a wrong horse off course
