8-30-14 Go Right Away

confess

The first time you walk in a nursing home

You smell the stench of urine and decay,

But if you visit ev’ry day and roam,

The stench will seem less strong then fade away.

And so it is with sins we do commit,

Then fail to go confess it to the Lord;

In time it fades to gray and we forget

Though it still reeks to God and is abhorred.

Acknowledge right away your ev’ry sin,

Confess with guilt, repent with broken heart,

And if you are contrite He’ll cleanse within;

Forgiven now, God’s love will ne’er depart.

            The Holy Spirit marks your heart with shame;

            Take this to God while it is still aflame.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If we confess our sins,

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9 KJV

  1. 1 Timothy 4:1,2 Now Holy SPIRIT with explicity says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which GOD created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the TRUTH.
    Romans 6:1,2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may bound?
    Certainly not!
    Romans 6:4 Let us walk in newness of life.
