Watching On?

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.(Matt 24:42-43)


Some are enticed by the god of this world
serving a king who demands in return
Sweating for a crust - like all in Adam must!
Do this, do that, go here, go there
Rules and laws governing everything
Burning consciences demanding sacrifices
Hands in the dirt seeing weeds everywhere!
The sun scoring naked flesh full of sores
Scorpions stinging, horses trampling.
mustn't mustn't mustn't - yes I must!
no, no, no don't touch, don't look, don't say
Grasshoppers devouring, war, draught and famine!
What a dragon the god of works truly is.
A six foot hole at the end to earn.



Others walk a different Way than the norm.
Trusting that Christ means it when He says;
"Follow Me and be free!"
Following The Love of 't heart obediently.
Daily in His Rest - celebrating Christ's Victory.
Forgiving love bringing thankfulness alive,
Father's love teaching grace in real life.
Forgiven sinners - listening to The Word
Always truthfully loving God, self and other
Carefully observing The Master doing the work
Glorying in God's Victory praising with all His own.
Ruling beside Christ served by angel's delights.
While gnashing their teeth The Wicked look on.
