Thinking back upon the Pharisees, those Old Testament wannabes,
Portrayed with a righteousness, who instead, were spiritually amiss,
Christ called them white washed tombs, that for God, had no room,
Filled with dead manís bones inside, by The Lord, they were denied.
Scripture says thereís no one good; this by all must be understood,
But, some Pharisees of that day, ignored Truths which God did say,
Some things in the Word of God, they dismissed for traditionís nod,
As manís traditions they enjoyed, making Godís Word null and void.
Men righteous in their own eyes, some Truths they dared to despise,
With the very words of The Lord, by religious leaders going ignored,
This fulfilling Isaiahís prophecy, of men with eyes that could not see,
With a darkened human condition, hearts stray from God to tradition.
What about The Church today, do we heed God or religiously stray?
Do we walk the narrow path of life, or the road where religion is rife?
Are we fully willing to pay the price, to be for God a living Sacrifice?
Fully following Christ our Lord, while today Truth by many is ignored!
True Righteousness comes only in Him, as Godís Spirit dwells within,
As Paul said, nothing good is within, our earthly tent, tainted with sin,
For any good that God does impart, is through His Spirit, in my heart,
For the only True Righteousness, comes from The Lord, Christ Jesus.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
