Hypocrite

21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?

22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?

23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?

Romans 2:21-23 KJV

Those Christians who don’t practice what they preach

Are like a blind man with a lamp in hand.

If they walk by just stay out of their reach

Else you be dragged with them into quicksand.

They’ve seen a lot but never really looked, 1

And love pretending they know what they don’t.

They serve the truth but it tastes undercooked;

Stay far away but be forewarned: they won’t.

We can be hypocrites though ignorant

Until the Holy Spirit checks our walk,

But woe to them who know but live a front;

They do no good and harm the future flock. 2

Call out your brother if he lives a lie.

In doing so make sure you too comply.

1Isaiah 42:20

2 Romans 2:24

1-21-15 Our Refuge and Strength

refuge and strength

When trouble comes, and we all know it’s here,

There is no better help than Jesus Christ.

Just call His name, there’s nothing more to fear,

Though Satan seeks to have your angst enticed.

Draw strength from Jesus, He is all you need;

His guidance gets you through the greatest trial.

With calm assurance Christ has you succeed;

The evil of this world cannot beguile.

Discord and discontent are now the norm,

But when you keep the Savior out in front

You’ll find refuge against the daily storm;

He fortifies your soul against affront.

In Jesus you are safe; on Him depend.

In darkest night there is no better friend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

God is our refuge and strength,

a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1 KJV
