5-2-15 The Earth is the Lord’s

nature

Although you think the world a wicked place,

So full of hate and pain and anguish, too,

Don’t blame the earth, it’s under God’s good grace,

But blame the lord of darkness and his crew.

The earth and everything that dwells therein

Belongs to Jesus Christ, He made it all,

But Adam disobeyed, and that is sin,

Forgetting it’s all His both great and small.

So Satan runs around without a care,

And tries to make us think it’s not his fault,

Yet as a child of God you must prepare,

To help Christ win the day with full assault.

To save the world, it helps to first save man.

The gospel brings us back to God’s great plan.

The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof;

the world, and they that dwell therein.

1-5-15 At the Door

judgemental

We’ve all been told ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged,’

Yet here we are in church with jaundiced eye.

She’s too agreeable, He won’t be budged,

They’re whispering again, I wonder why?

O hypocrite! You think I write to them.

It’s always someone else who has the fault.

The judge is at the door yet you condemn.

It’s not enough to try; you have to halt.

Remember, were it not for God’s good grace

The flames of Hell would lick against your feet.

Be humble in your heart, not just your face;

Consider yourself less than all you meet.

If you complain against your brother now,

When you face Jesus, He will disavow.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Grudge not one against another, brethren,

lest ye be condemned:

behold, the judge standeth before the door.

James 5:9 KJV
