SUNDAY SELECTIONS

KEEP ON THE FIRING LINE”

  1. If you’re in the battle for the Lord and right,
    Keep on the firing line;
    If you win, my brother, surely you must fight,
    Keep on the firing line;
    There are many dangers that we all must face,
    If we die still fighting it is no disgrace;
    Cowards in the service will not find a place,
    So keep on the firing line.
    • Refrain:
      Oh, you must fight, be brave against all evil,
      Never run, nor even lag behind;
      If you would win for God and the right,
      Just keep on the firing line.
  2. God will only use the soldier He can trust,
    Keep on the firing line;
    If you’ll wear a crown then bear the cross you must,
    Keep on the firing line.
    Life is but to labor for the Master dear,
    Help to banish evil and to spread good cheer;
    Great you’ll be rewarded for your service here,
    So keep on the firing line.
  3. When we get to heaven, brother, we’ll be glad,
    Keep on the firing line;
    How we’ll praise the Savior for the call we had,
    Keep on the firing line;
    When we see the souls that we have helped to win,
    Leading them to Jesus, from the paths of sin,
    With a shout of welcome, we will all march in,
    So keep on the firing line.

Keep On The Firing Line was written by Otis L. McCoy ,copyrighted in 1935 digest the words to this song, keep on the firing line, be brave, stand against all evil to win for God & the right

(Romans 8:38-39) says

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,nor angels, nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come nor height nor depth nor any other creatures shall separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus

in other words nothing should be able to keep us from the love of God, we have to live in this world & life does get us down at times more ways than one but we are to stay strong & get right back on the battlefield of our walk with the Lord

I’ve noticed spider Lilies are beginning to pop up here & there Spider Lilies

as I noticed one in the middle of the yard as we approached the front of the church, my mind was flooded with sweet memories of my husbands grandmother who always had a row of them along side her fence, then I thought of how quickly it'd be gone with the next good grass cutting, but no matter how many times it gets cut down it always pops back up

that’s the way we are to be when this old world gets us down, when we feel we can no longer stand strong on the battle field, the enemy may knock us down but if we stand faithful & true we will stand again, if the little spider lily could talk I’d imagine she’d say you may cut me down but I’ll come back for I was born to bloom

so take another look at the spider lily the next time you come across one & remind yourself you were born to bloom so that those who walk in darkness may be able  to see the light
