A solid recommendation,
if we'd partake in His Salvation!
The Creator, who designed the test,
Gave us the answer that is best.
Please Allow me now to rant a bit,
to throw a Sandra Duncan fit,
about how few people seem to grasp,
and are caught up in the devil's clasp.
Because ALL FLESH...
would rather hide, than abide,
stress than press, strive than thrive,
whine than shine, cope than hope, and
when none of that works, turn to the dope!
Anything - but believe in a God,
who made this wonder out of sod!
And after first designing a perfect planet,
He gave that human ONE JOB, Man IT!
But the flesh would do ANYTHING....
but believe in a Loving God, who Then
sent His Only Son as a cure for sin!
After the man He'd put in power,
bought a lie, then, succumbing, chose to hide and cower!
ALL FLESH …
Is a self-absorbed disaster,
always trying to circumvent the Master!
Always trying to make life work,
without His help! Such a dumb, dumb, jerk!
Flesh will do anything but just admit,
that God's the ONLY Place we fit!
That GOD's the ONLY source of JOY!
The flesh would rather prize its OY!
The flesh is terminally STUPID, you see,
But the Choice is STILL up to You & ME,
To choose the spirit, with a renewed BRAIN,
which THE HOLY SPIRIT can help us TRAIN!
WE CHOOSE which place we want to be
for all of vast eternity,
With the good Creator, whose boundless love
has made a way to rise above...
the hell bound flesh with all it's faults,
that's taking us to hellish vaults..?
Or with the flesh that keeps us bound to shame,
when we could just call out His Name!
How foolish is the choice to live
below the level His Love can give,
to keep the struggles and the pain,
to live and love and work in vain...
then at the end be separated,
from the ONE Who has created,
all for us to have, enjoy,
how foolish we are to keep the oy.
How much better would it be,
to just decide, believe, that HE,
has our best interests at His heart,
so from His love we won't depart!
How sweet to finally rise above,
this stressful flesh to find His love.
Think about it! We've so much to lose!
I think we need to finally CHOOSE!
That means we must MAKE UP OUR MINDS!
Get off our pathetic, procrastinating, behinds;
We must let HIM fix our broken past,
and finally make HIM LORD! At last!
Some make Him Savior, and think they're done.
They really think they can use the Son,
For their “Skip-Hell-Free” Card, like that's all,
He came for! Honey, that's some gall!
We'd better make Him Sovereign KING,
Follow Him, and LEARN SOMETHING!
Maybe learn to WORSHIP and OBEY,
before He comes to call away …
Those who made THE LIVING CHOICE,
who didn't just “religion” voice,
who didn't just play church for looks,
who gave attention to His Book!
We need to really, finally, CHOOSE!
'Cause folks we've got a lot to lose!
If HE came today, or even tomorrow?
Will we spend eternity in Sorrow?
Because we chose to keep the flesh,
with all it's selfish, foolish mess?
Or will we, as we breathe a grateful sigh,
go, relieved, to reign with HIM on High?
Our eternal destiny's at stake,
so be careful how much time you take!
This is not some silly fairy tale,
The choice is ours. Choice will prevail!
The Father's made an awful fuss,
to show the love He has for us!
We dare not continue self-deceiving,
We must wake up now and start believing!
He said He's got a place prepared,
He said He's coming, don't be scared.
He said when He comes, its for His prize,
the Ones who chose HIM above the lies.
He said we'd spend eternity,
Ruling vastness which we can't now see.
Ruling with Him, or separated,
into a darkness we've created …
By constantly choosing to douse His Light,
constantly choosing the “thrill” of night?
To choose flesh-fostering, suffocating fear;
over spirit-formed, Life-giving faith,
will mean that only death and doom, eternally, await.
There's still time to CHOOSE! There's no sense in losing
all He's bought for us, but we must get to choosing!
Choose to rise above this fleshly strife -
It's an Open-Book test y'all, He said, “CHOOSE LIFE”!
This choice is real folks, we've one more chance,
will we languish forever, or will we dance?
Choose Life with Him forever, or a forever separate Hell;
The time to choose is NOW folks. Oh, please, choose well!
