Messenger Ministry

"Make the seven lamps... that they may give light" (Exodus 25:37).  "Men of the world... have their portion in this life... As for me... I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness" (Psalm 17:14,15).  "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30).  "Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time... Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfill it" (Colossians 4:5,17). 

The tabernacle lamps were made
To shine the light as God ordained,
That Christ might thereby be portrayed
As light where darkness once had reigned.

How great the darkness is today
That leads the blind to hopeless graves,
But as for us who know the way,
We shine the Gospel light that saves. 

The Lord has called us to be wise
By leading souls to His salvation  
With truth that will expose the lies
And rescue them from condemnation. 

So teach us, Lord, to do Your will
As messengers whom You have sent
With ministry that we fulfill
By winning sinners who repent.
