10-3-15 Walk the Walk

being a christian

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Luke 6:46 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you a follower by word or deed?

It matters when you reach the other side.

Most anyone can memorize a creed;

The words take on new meaning when applied.

What good are all the scriptures if ignored?

I tell you there are some who ‘know’ the word,

But when it comes to Jesus as their Lord,

They don’t know how to act and not be heard.

If you believe in Jesus, walk the walk;

A fruit is known by taste and not just form.

A plastic bird is nothing more than schlock;

An eagle rides the clouds above a storm.

He won’t know who you are when you cry ‘Lord’

If you don’t do His will. You’ll be ignored.

9-1-14 Follow like a Child

Childhood-of-Christ

When you choose Christ to be your Lord and King,

Then you become a precious child of God,

Inheriting all that His Love does bring,

Reborn into His Grace, your heart now thawed.

A child will imitate his Father’s ways,

And O! the ways of God are wonderful!

Like Jesus, love all men without delays,

Compassionate, forgiving, bountiful.

You walk in faith across this foreign land,

Aware that God is here to help you through.

Your Father’s wish is always your command,

So follow in the Saviour’s steps so true.

            You are a child of God, and held so dear

            By God your Father; Christ will draw you near.

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

Be ye therefore followers of God,

as dear children

Ephesians 5:1 KJV
