Sermon on the Mount: Dark Eyes, Black Heart

22“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” ~Matthew 6

Whatever

My eyes see

I desire it

All for me

And I reach out

To take hold of what I want

But there’s nothing there

There never was

.

Empty is life

Without the LORD

And blind are my eyes

Without Your Word

I battle always between

Flesh and Your Spirit

Take hold of me, LORD

Take hold of me

Today

.

I think on the wickedness

Of the world

And I wish that they would

Wash their hands

But murder and deceit

They aren’t muddying my skin

They come from my heart

Right now

They come from the world’s

Heart

What do we desire?

Is it good or bad?

Which is stronger?

Conscience or what you have?

No one’s looking

No one will ever know

But the LORD

He is watching

Fused to my soul

.

Empty is life

Without the LORD

And blind are my eyes

Without Your Word

I battle always between

Flesh and Your Spirit

Take hold of me, LORD

Take hold of me

Today

.

It’s dark in here!

I’m shivering!

It’s dark in here!

And I can’t get free

It’s dark in here!

With my heart

All alone.

God shine Your light

Inside of me

Let me see and desire You

My LORD

My God

Teach me Your Laws

My Light

My King

Today

“16So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” ~Galatians 5

“Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.” ~Psalm 119:36

“17You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.” ~Revelation 3

‘20He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”’ ~Mark 7

“20Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. 21Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. 22Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, 3who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent. 24Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel. 25Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down. The mountains shake, and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets.” ~Isaiah 5
