11-26-14 A Matter of Life or Death

ItsYourChoice-StairwaytoHeavenorStairwaytoHell

You’re born to die; that’s just the innate way,

For you can’t help but sin; it’s everywhere,

And for the sin you work death is your pay

It’s just what you deserve to your despair.

God loves us, so He offered you the means

To live and conquer death beyond the grave;

Sin is disease but He has the vaccines:

His grace through Christ’s blood sacrifice to save.

So Jesus took upon Himself your sins

Then died to take the wages meant for you,

But then He rose again and thus begins,

If you believe in Him you’ll live anew.

This really is a choice of life or death:

Please choose in faith His gift and Spirit’s breath.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the wages of sin is death;

but the gift of God is eternal life

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23 KJV

11-22-14 Slave to Sin

slave to sin

If you are not a Christ-born child of God,

There’s nowhere left to go, no one to help,

For sin has got you bound and scarred and flawed,

A hopeless slave in debt, the devil’s whelp.

No matter how you try to do just good,

The chains of sin are fast around your neck,

But freedom’s found between three nails and wood:

The blood of Jesus saves you from sin’s beck.

Just give your life to Christ, the choice is yours,

And let the Holy Spirit show the way,

And if you fall, repent, God’s mercy soars;

You now belong to Christ, in him you pray.

When Jesus died for you he took your sin,

So live for him, my brother, now begin!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus answered them,

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

John 8:34 KJV

8-1-14 Sinfected

sin1

When Adam fell, he plunged the world in sin;

The serpent roamed the Earth to blind us all,

Corrupting ev’rything he found therein

And brought decay and death with sickened pall.

When we are born, we are so innocent,

But all around us sin does permeate;

We reach an age to choose our own descent,

And in the course of time we take the bait.

Infected now, we can’t approach God’s throne,

But with His love He offers us a chance,

A sacrifice by which we may atone;

If we believe the Lamb we will advance.

In sin we all fall short of Heaven’s gate,

But Jesus died for us to change our fate.

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

For all have sinned,

and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23
