20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:20-23 KJV
If you’re a good soul, keeping every law,
You love your fellow man and God as well,
If you don’t follow Christ, this fateful flaw
Will drag you to the hoary gates of hell.
Don’t think if you’ve got money all is lost,
It’s where you place your trust and confidence.
Take up your cross like Him at any cost; *
Put all your hope in Christ at life’s expense.
The question’s this: what’s your priority?
What currency do you spend all your time?
It’s more than being willing that’s the key;
It’s what control your life’s the paradigm.
What drives your soul is what’s been sacrificed.
There’s power in the blood of Jesus Christ.
REMEMBER: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33 KJV)
* Matthew 16:24
