3-16-15 No Longer Slave to Sin

no longer slave to sin

Before you came to Christ you were a slave,

So hopelessly involved in sin and shame,

A victim to desire that bodies crave;

The passions of the flesh are all the same.

And then convicted by the Holy Ghost,

You fell before the cross as Spirit slain,

Declaring Christ your Lord, the final host

You rose a son of God no sin to stain.

Your flesh was crucified: the lust, the thirst,

No longer slave to sin and all its ways,

You now have conscious choice as Spirit nursed

To fall to such temptations and malaise.

Call out to Jesus when seduced by sin;

Have faith in Christ and love will always win.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh

with the affections and lusts.

Galatians 5:24 KJV

If you get more excited for a sport,

A TV show, your business or a band,

Then how in all the world can you purport

To say you love the Lord and take that stand?

If you are saved you ought to think that way;

The Christian mind is fixed to serve the Lord.

Don’t let the devil’s playground make you stray.

Remember why you’re here; you won’t get bored.

There’s nothing wrong with having lots of fun,

There’s joy in many things as you well know;

Just don’t forget the shadow’s not the sun.

There’s more important things than this below.

When you get more excited loving God

You won’t go soon astray with a facade

~~~~~~~~~~~

Set your affection on things above,

not on things on the earth.

Colossians 3:2 KJV
