In His Name

In Apples of Gold by Nina Gaus1 Comment

“And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” I John 4:21

“But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?” I John 3:17

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17

In His Name

By: Nina R. Hall

You may wonder why a Christian has a heart of love;

And why, when giving time to others, they thank God above?

And why their busy lives don’t stop this passion of their heart?

It’s because the pulsing of their heart beats love for God.

And compassion is spurred on, in the light of that love.

 

Hear them say: “For the love of a brother, I will do this thing

And for the love of a sister, this gift we bring.

For this love of the King of Kings, bids us do anything;

And in His name we love and live and grow, and gifts we bring.”

 

So each time a Christian sees a brother who’s in need,

Though to help is inconvenient, and all the world agrees;

They must bow their heads and hearts, and in the presence of their Savior

Offer up this sacrifice to God, and give a little more.

For nothing can compare to what he’s given us – everlasting life forevermore.

 

Hear them say: “For the love of a brother, I will do this thing

And for the love of a sister, this gift we bring.

For this love of the King of Kings, bids us do anything;

And in His name we love and live and grow, and gifts we bring.”

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
