If you believe you're forgiven,
now is the time to move ahead.
This is the day for holy living;
walk away from the sinful dread.
What He commands we can do;
it's just the question of our will.
Let Word and Spirit enter you;
by your choice become still.
Put down the bitterness, with the wrath;
pick up kindness with a tender heart.
This is the new way; this is your path;
those old things tore your life apart.
Replace the speech of the evil
with the words to show you forgive.
This is the challenge, the eye of the needle;
this is where you will truly live.
For you are given true people skills,
taught by the One who made those people.
This is the battle of the wills;
prides as tall as a church steeple.
This is your choice. Which do you choose?
The way of pride, or trusting abandon.
If you are His, this you will prove.
Walk by the Word you say you stand on.
"Let all bitterness and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." ~ Ephesians 4:31-32
