Complete Worship In Spirit And Truth
Gary P. Adkins
Most churches sing songs to His high and holy name
When it comes to prayers, giving thanks, most do the same
Preaching and teaching, they will schedule both every time
And taking up an offering is upmost and always on their mind.
But when it comes to what Jesus Christ did for you and me
That day when He suffered and died there upon Calvary
His church which He purchased with His own blood sacrifice
So that all sins could be washed away, He paid that price.
The cross of Christ is still a symbol throughout this land
How the nails were driven through His feet and hands
“Nothing but the blood of Jesus” is most churches’ plea
Salvation and hope is found in no other name than He.
But when it comes to remembering this upon the first day
How this is observed and done is an option, most will say
It’s the thought that counts about what happened back then
After all, how “often” is a personal choice as to where or when.
But Jesus said, “Take eat: this is My body, broken for you”
And, therefore, “In remembrance of Me, this do.”
“This cup is the New Testament in My blood; this do ye”
And, “As oft as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
The apostle Paul said, “For as often as ye eat this bread
And drink this cup,” to clear our minds and head,
To think back on these words, who they came from
“Ye do show the Lord’s death until He come.”
This act of worship where we can commune with the Lord
Within their time schedules, most churches cannot afford
“The first disciples met upon the first day of the week
To break bread.” Did it make their faith strong or weak?
This sounds like a command for Christians to me
Others may even say or think, “Sporadic” let it be
Upon the first day of the week, Jesus, this I will do
Remember and honor the body and blood shed by You.
