So, Orpah left visibly and spiritually,
And under grace many Orpahs there are gone back:
Some retreat from day one, some others much later,
Some exit both visibly and spiritually,
Others leave spiritually but visibly seen:
All for want of roots, lack of heavenly vision!
So, there are ‘old’ Orpahs back to the world out there;
And then ‘new’ Orpahs lost to the world-in- the-church!
Which is why, God’s infallible Word do caution:
“Examine yourself whether you’re still in the faith.”
Like Ruth consecrated, heavenward we need be!
Of the Orpahs out there the Church must reach out to.
And this mix-of-world-and-church Orpahs in the Church;
These who think they can go Canaan path ‘with the world’;
These wanting to ‘make’ the Church part of hell’s broad-way;
Sweeping their number; clouding the gospel in minds,
And making the way of truth evil spoken of,
May we by way of truth that frees point to the Cross!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
