Love Not The World ~

Too often our love for God,
grows lackluster and dim . . .
turning cold our desire
to follow after Him.

We lose our focus,
in a world full of greed
till we no longer count
on God to meet our need.

Our eyes start to ache,
after things lustful
till our bodies into sin
eagerly fall and tumble.

Our arrogance and pride,
starts to get in our way
causing us to forget . . .
one day all will pass away.

Too often our love for God,
grows lusterless and dim
but, we who love not the world . . .
will spend eternity with Him!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the
lust of the eyes, and the pride
of life, is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.

The Love of The World ~

The love of the world,
is but foolishness . . .
all it has to offer
is truly meaningless.

It’s full of vanities,
prideful, greedy lust
one day all it offers
will tarnish and rust.

The love of the world,
is empty, grim and grave
once you desire of it
to it you’ll be a slave.

It teaming with sin,
too godless to mention
it’s where satan reigns
with all his henchman.

The love of the word,
is foolishness for sure
and the Light of Jesus . . .
is it’s only saving cure!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

“Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Whatever Is Pure ~

whatever-is-pure-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Whatever things are pure,
that which is holy . . .
think about such things
with your heart, wholly.

For, any other thoughts,
to God are never pleasing
only to our fleshly appetites
are they really appeasing.

Whatever things are unpolluted,
that which is clean
think about such things
all else, to God is obscene.

For, that which is corrupt,
soils and defiles the soul
with things that are hard
for our minds to control.

Whatever things are eternal,
that which is everlasting
think about such things
all else, is God distracting.

For, the lusts of the world,
will only cause us grief
as they’ll pervert and distort
our faith and our belief.

Whatever things are pure,
on such things, think
any other thoughts . . .
to God, will only stink!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are pure . . .
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.”

Those Who Love the Lord ~

Hope in a Dark World by Chris Vasquez free photo #5638

Those who love the Lord,
are not a part of this world
they hate the evil in it
they don’t give sin a whirl.

They know they are safe,
from the hand of the wicked
for, Jesus guards their life
to lust they’re not addicted.

The world is not a friend,
they know it’s their enemy
they want nothing to do
with its ungodly chemistry.

They stay out of the devils way,
into his territory they don’t go
they ask Jesus to shine His light
so in the darkness ~ He will glow.

Those who love the Lord,
in this world ~ they don’t mesh
for they know there is no joy
in the works of the flesh!

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

1 John 2:15
King James Version

“Love not the world,
neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.”

Satan’s Stumbling Blocks ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
for the stumbling blocks Satan lays
he’ll sneak them out in front of you
to throw you off the righteous ways.

He’ll point out all your weaknesses,
in hopes that you will buckle and cave
he’ll make you feel pathetic
so to his lies you’ll become a slave.

He’ll tell you that you’re no good,
God wants nothing to do with you
he’ll throw your sins in your face
so his sham you won’t see through.

He’ll cause you to stray off the course,
with lustful thoughts for worldly things
he’ll let you think you deserve them
so you won’t know the deceit he brings.

He’ll make you question God’s love,
whether for you He really cares
he’ll tempt you with fear and doubt
for they are two of his biggest snares.

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
don’t let Satan cause you to stumble
lest the blocks he puts in your way
will cause you into his pit ~ tumble!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty, so your
minds should be corrupted
from the simplicity that is
in Christ.

Sin No More ~

Sin Kills by Nathan Wright free photo # 1991-1

Oh, beware my repented friend,
for Jesus came not to condemn
rather to forgive your trespasses
but you must not go and sin again.

Once you confess to Him your sin,
ask Him for His strength and power
for Satan will be sure to tempt you
when he finds you in your weakest hour.

You must forsake your sinful ways,
if you want God’s peace to remain
and from all the lusts of this world
you must be faithful to refrain.

Sin confessed will not save you,
if you return to your recklessness
you must stop the sin that you do
or you will lose ~ God’s blessedness.

Oh, beware my repented friend,
for Jesus came not to condemn
but God requires from you living faith
and you must change lest you sin again!

~~~~~~~~

John 8:11
King James Version

“She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said
unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go,
and sin no more.
