No Substitute

No Substitute

Salvation in vain rituals does not compute.
Nothing and no one can take God’s place.
All attempts, otherwise, lead to man’s disgrace.
The Lord is our salvation—there simply is no substitute.

For societal acceptance, we are more resolute.
Our customs have grown in significance
And seem to blind us to God’s magnificence.
God is glorious—there simply is no substitute.

Faith is forfeited by traditions that dilute,
Bunnies, dyed eggs with all their fanfare,
Trimmed trees, pretty presents and their air.
God is incomparable—there simply is no substitute.

Let us worship and seek God in earnest pursuit.
Let us turn to Him from our subtle idolatry.
Let us turn to Him from our spiritual harlotry,
The Lord alone is God—there simply is no substitute.

Romans 1:25NLT They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

Jeremiah 10:1-3, 6-7AMP HEAR THE word which the Lord speaks to you…Thus says the Lord: Learn not the way of the [heathen] nations and be not dismayed at the signs of the heavens, though they are dismayed at them, For the customs and ordinances of the peoples are false, empty, and futile…None at all is like You, O Lord; You are great, and Your name is great in might. Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? For it is fitting to You and Your due! For among all the wise [men or gods] of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is none like You.
