12-30-15 The Party Scene

party

And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.

Isaiah 5:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

It seems as if the party scene is cool:

The thumping bass is felt down in your bones,

But if you don’t go with them you’re a fool;

Your name won’t be a contact on their phones.

The wings and pizza make up quite a feast;

The beer flows freely, so do all the drugs,

But they don’t know the Lord, they serve the Beast;

You mention Jesus, all you get are shrugs.

Those partyers are lost unless they yield

To Someone greater than their Insta friends.

If they don’t turn to Christ their fates are sealed.

Keep trying to get through; God’s grace transcends.

Don’t get caught up- you’ll surely get dragged down.

If you share Christ with them they may not drown.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Don’t get caught up in the party scene. To some of them, you might be the closest thing to Christ they’ll ever know.

7-24-15 One Too Many

addictive_drugs

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, 

that they may follow strong drink;

that continue until night, till wine inflame them!

Isaiah 5:11 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Beware that cup of wine, that mug of beer;

It may well be the drink of no return.

Imbibing alcohol can bring you cheer,

But too much booze is cause for great concern.

You think you can control it, and you may,

Yet there will come a time it turns on you.

Addiction causes spiritual decay;

Your passion’s not of God, but of the brew.

It’s good to know your weaknesses today,

For that is where the devil burrows through.

Avoid them like the plague; just run away.

Temptation can’t compete if your faith’s true.

If it’s too late and you just cannot quit,

Turn quick to Christ and counselors submit.
