Tactical Living


In the light of the cross we have have been given a new and absolute directive...go ye into all the world and preach the gospel...with the absolute assurance of His presence...and Lo I am with you always...what a faith partner to have as an associate...the Lord Jesus Christ Himself....hallelujah! What a Saviour...now we can be wise as serpents and harmless as doves as we live tactically in our search for lost souls....your presently living in your mission field....Go!


Tactical living in the light of the cross
Becomes our destiny
We are given a field of service
In our walk of christianity
No longer bound to this world
With all of it's adorning power
But saved and kept by the Spirit of God
Until our ascension hour

Compassion ruling in Spirit led men
Seeking the lost to save
With our spiritual antennas proactive
Living in light of the grave
For an empty tomb sealed our faith
Our Lord...our Lord has arisen
A blessed hope available to all
Salvation has been given!

Sin has finally met its Match
And its penalty has been paid
Offering of the sacrificial Lamb
The Victor over the grave
Now dirty laundry can be cleaned
Our heart's can be forgiven
Glorious Resurrection power
God sent His Son from heaven

No longer I but YOU...Lord now
With a heart full of thanksgiving
So honored Lord that you've blessed
Me in each day of living
May my prayer be to this end
Lord help me your Word to share
And with a life of tactical living
Spread that gospel everywhere

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
