His Love Is Enough

In our own estimation, we are wise,
But not before the Lord,
Our wisdom is as foolishness,
If its wisdom of this world.

And our righteousness is as filthy rags,
To our God above,
But He still gives us mercy,
And His unfailing love.

Were not fit to untie His sandals,
Because we are not that worthy,
But He still made us heirs with Him,
When He died on Calvary.

He died so that we may have life,
With Him eternally,
We ought to serve and worship only Him,
And give Him all the glory.

Hes done so many great things for us,
Why is it hard for us to understand?
That He loved us enough to die,
Why do we not trust that Hes holding our hand?

All He wants for us to do,
Is do what He has asked,
Yet sometimes we go astray,
Because we think its too big a task.

It would be so simple to keep,
The commandments that He gave,
If wed just lay aside our flesh,
To be in the spirit every day

If we were crucified in Christ,
It would be easier to bear,
All our trials and tribulations,
Because He will be there.

Its the trials that we go through on earth,
That we should praise Him for,
Because it means were doing something right,
When we face those storms.

And when people persecute us,
We should be like the apostle Paul,
For he thanked God for every stripe,
He praised God our All in All.

We may be very tempted,
Tried and pushed around,
But He wont put on us what we cant bear,
And we wont be taken down,

By the schemes of the devil,
Because were covered in His blood,
And satan, he cant walk through that,
God is protecting us.

Although we dont deserve it,
As sinful as we are,
He loves us enough to forgive,
And cleanse our dirty hearts.

If wed just have faith in Him,
Instead of in the world,
I know we never would get hit,
When satans darts are hurled.

And saying that youre only human,
Is not a good excuse,
To completely ignore the voice of God,
When Hes speaking to you.

God speaks to us in many ways,
His people, your mind, the Word,
To ignore it, is not good,
So listen to what youve heard.

He is mighty, strong, and loving,
Merciful and true,
He is the Way, the Truth, the Life,
For everyone, even you.

He has some gifts that He wants to give,
Salvation, grace, and mercy,
Hell wrap you up in His arms,
Then His love you will see.

If you just accept the truth,
(Its right there in your bible),
Pray and ask Him in and Hell forgive,
So for past sin you are not liable.

However, you are liable to live like Him,
And witness to all the earth,
All the things Hes done for you,
Then you could say that you have worth.

Youll have worth because youre working,
To serve only Him,
And worth youll have because He died,
To wash away your sin.

So strive to be like Jesus,
Crucify your flesh with Christ,
Walk in the spirit, and in truth,
And youll be in the light.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
