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.
We’re 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.
He’s 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 He’s holding our hand?
All He wants for us to do,
Is do what He has asked,
Yet sometimes we go astray,
Because we think it’s too big a task.
It would be so simple to keep,
The commandments that He gave,
If we’d 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.
It’s the trials that we go through on earth,
That we should praise Him for,
Because it means we’re 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 won’t put on us what we can’t bear,
And we won’t be taken down,
By the schemes of the devil,
Because we’re covered in His blood,
And satan, he can’t walk through that,
God is protecting us.
Although we don’t deserve it,
As sinful as we are,
He loves us enough to forgive,
And cleanse our dirty hearts.
If we’d just have faith in Him,
Instead of in the world,
I know we never would get hit,
When satan’s darts are hurled.
And saying that you’re only human,
Is not a good excuse,
To completely ignore the voice of God,
When He’s 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 you’ve 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,
He’ll wrap you up in His arms,
Then His love you will see.
If you just accept the truth,
(It’s right there in your bible),
Pray and ask Him in and He’ll 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 He’s done for you,
Then you could say that you have worth.
You’ll have worth because you’re working,
To serve only Him,
And worth you’ll 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 you’ll be in the light.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
