no time for passion

Your alarm goes off,
Getting you out of bed.
You wake up so late,
Leaving the Bible unread.

Youíre going for breakfast,
Spiritual foods not important.
Bible and prayers now a chore,
More like a monthly instalment.

And fellowship with God,
Is now more like a bill.
Paid because you have to,
No longer from free will.

Leave praying on the go,
If praying at all today.
Read the Bible tomorrow,
Or leave it for Sunday.

Driving past the sick,
Walking past the poor.
When will our brain click?
Godís work is not a chore.

Whereís some peoples love?
And whereís the passion?
Christianity is not a name,
And it is not a fashion.

Reading the Bible, praying,
All should be free will.
Why praise God in front of others,
When at home you donít kneel?

Why be Holy in church?
Like Heavens your afterlife.
Youíre wasting time in church,
With that double life.

Righteousness starts at home,
It starts in your room.
God sees past the Christian name,
He sees right past the costume.

Prayer starts by yourself,
In your rooms privacy.
Jesus himself even rebuked,
The praying Pharisee.

Bible reading is from love,
With passion for learning.
Why read the Bible quick,
If itís without searching?

We need to have fellowship,
But with love for the creator.
Time with God is not a bill,
But itís something far greater.
