Is there really such a thing as too saved;
For, we title these people because of the way they behave.
We consider people “too saved” when they can’t see
Past their own self-righteousness to act compassionately.
They usually are critical of everything others do,
And are quick to blame sin for the problems others go through.
Job was approached by some “too saved” men;
For, they were “too saved” to see within their own sin.
They thought themselves faultless,
And were so persistent in demanding that Job confess
Of the sin that he had hidden away,
Which they assumed, brought trouble his way.
“Too saved” people tried to condemn Jesus’ work;
But, they were all brought to shame when He wrote in the dirt;
“For, he who is without sin, cast the first stone”,
And when Jesus arose, He found he and the woman left all alone.
“Too saved” people try to make you feel bad for your spirituality,
But if you look at their lives closely, you will see the reality
That they aren’t as saved as they claim to be;
For, they are sinning by judging you and me.
“Too saved” people act is if they are ready to go to heaven at any time,
But, don’t realize they’ve fallen short by treating the unsaved, weak, and backslider unkind.
What do you do about the “too saved” people you meet?
Stand strong when they turn up the critical heat
Accusing you of being unsaved and full of sin;
Please don’t let them get under you skin,
Because you are standing up and speaking for all of us
That realize that they aren’t “too save”, but not saved enough;
For, if they were as saved as they needed to be,
They wouldn’t be here on earth to criticize and judge you and me;
For, God would have taken them long ago:
They will have done all they need to do and know all they need to know.
Those that are saved enough are delivered from this place,
But, those who have more work to do are left to continue the race.
So, if you are still walking the earth among all creation,
God is still working on our salvation;
Therefore, you are no more saved than us,
But, the truth of the matter is none of us are saved enough.
