Obedience

Some may lose their souls over disobedience on:

A few inches of hair, A few grams of gold, A few centimeters of fabric.

George Muller was born this date, 9/27/1805, near Magdeburg, Germany.  He was converted to Christ (1825) from a wild, sinful, even criminal life, under the ministry of the Moravians.  George began evangelistic work among Jews, children and others.  He came to England (Bristol) and eventually started his famous Faith orphanages.  This work of faith was supported by prayer, obedience, and private gift.  It is said that he (and his many helpers) took care of 10,000 orphans and that at his death (1898) some eight million dollars had passed through his trusting hands.  Only heaven will reveal the wonderful work this man accomplished, relying upon His Savior.

They came.

They came on camels – (probably),

Lumbering hoofed ships,

On a shifting, sandy sea (wind, lea).

 

They gave.

Three tokens at least (myrrh, “gum,” gold),

Presents for the King,

In royal David’s household (foretold).

 

They left.

A different way. (Don’t all men?)

Time’s most Focal Point,

Confronts, converts, men from sin (Within).

 

But wait!

Were their gifts alive? (flesh, blood, soul?)

To hearken is best;

Obedience gains the goal (Not dole).

 

Dear Lord,

Accept these our gifts (howe’er fine)

Earth’s joys signed below.

Make them God forever Thine (Not mine).
