There have been those who measurably did shun
God for a life filled with frolic and fun.
Having loads of fun makes life seem like a blast
But, the feature on fun is it does not last.
To God, one quickly ought now to run.
Fun here ceases, but the hereafter’s joy with Him will never pass.
There are others who, all for a worldly name,
Ignored God and tried to beat the world at its game.
Having a worldly name today may seem all the rage.
But, a name built on a passing world is not a wise gauge.
Trust in God for an identity that will not end in shame.
A name given by God will ever shine, no matter the changing age.
There have been some who became members of a local church
Who trusted not in God and were blind to their precarious perch.
To be attached to a local church without true knowledge of God
Is to be ignorant of God’s will and judgment’s pending proving rod.
The Lord delights not in fanciful falsehood for it elicits besmirch.
Be real in your walk so you will not miss Heaven being spiritually unshod.
There are many who have lived life with a hatred of all things holy
Who refused to acknowledge God using logic that was holey.
Though, each day the mirror showed the image of God so clearly,
Blindness blocked the view due to failing to embrace God dearly.
If one, would only open up and listen to the Gospel solely,
They would come to know the love of Jesus shown at Calvary so sincerely.
There are others who have known the Lord but strayed down a fleshly route
Who realized that peace and joy withered away due to their sinful pursuit.
The believer should ever praise God for His mercy, His Spirit, and His Word.
Though we stray, repentance will come, once our heart has truly been spurred.
Saints let us ever trek upon the righteous path and be resolute.
Let us follow Him so close that our faith, by His power, He will gird.
A life devoid of or un-devoted to God will end in a woeful bust.
Your time is running out, for you to seek Him now is a must.
Do not put off until tomorrow what you should do today.
A tomorrow is coming which will be void of words you would normally say,
For it is appointed unto men once to die and his body to return to dust.
If you desire to be with God ever, believe on Jesus now, He is the only way.
Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. John 14:6 (Amplified Bible)
This [Jesus] is the Stone which was despised and rejected by you, the builders, but which has become the Head of the corner [the Cornerstone]. And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved. Acts 4:11-12 (Amplified Bible)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
