With Their Lips Only ~

Some say they love Jesus,
but, it’s with their lips only
for their actions do not match
what their words say so boldly.

They tell you they believe,
but, it’s not with their heart
for deep inside of them
sin still plays an ugly part.

Their faith and trust in God,
they will openly declare
but, with the things of this world
they still have a love affair.

Their mouths sing the songs,
of the joy of their salvation
but, to them they hold no real
life-changing revelations.

Some say they love Jesus,
their lips mouth their devotion
but, their hearts are only . . .
going through the motion!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 29:13

“Wherefore the Lord said,
Forasmuch as this people
draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me,
but have removed their heart far
from me, and their fear toward
me is taught by the precept of men:”

Heaven Bound ~

Heaven Bound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a new birth certificate,
on the day, I was born again
I was so excited to have Jesus
come into my life and reign.

I received a brand new heart,
on the day, I opened the door
inviting Jesus to come right in
not knowing what was in store.

He took a close look around,
saw what I could never see
He told me was going to form
His image right into me.

I had to give up the old life,
for the one He was to mold
He told me when He was done
I would be, as good as gold.

It took Him quite a while,
to turn my life around . . .
but now my birth certificate
says ~ I’m heaven bound!

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

John 3:5-7
King James Version

“Jesus answered,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,

Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into
the kingdom of God.

That which is born
of the flesh is flesh;

and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.”

From Knowing To Living ~

To be made alive in Jesus,
we have to put off the old man
God has a new one for us
that came with salvation’s plan.

God opened up our minds,
He’s softened our stony heart
showed us our sinful condition
then in Jesus, gave us a new start.

We’re no longer to wander aimlessly,
we are to walk in a different way
as we learn the truth’s Jesus taught
we must faithfully do what they say.

We must learn from head to heart,
the purposes He has for our lives
we need to follow hard after Jesus
if we want our faith to survive.

For, God has called us to be holy,
blameless without sinful quirks
to prove we are of His workmanship
created in Christ ~ to do good works.

If you want to be more like Jesus . . .
then your faith must keep on moving
you must go from just knowing
to a life in Him that is ~ truly living!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:10
King James Version

“For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained
that we should walk in them.”

Refine Me O’ Lord ~

Revival by Gary Buchanan free photo #10484

Refine me O’ Lord,
purify me through and through
remove all my imperfections
until I see only You.

Refine me O’ Lord,
purge the old man out of me
expose my own wickedness
till Your goodness lives in me.

Refine me O’ Lord,
take me through the fire
until it’s only You
that my heart desires.

Refine me O ‘ Lord,
filter Your love through me
polish Your image into my soul
till Your light shines in me.

Refine me O’ Lord,
test me in Your truth and way
perfect in me a faultless heart
so from You ~ I’ll never stray.

Refine me O’ Lord,
purify me through and through
remove all my imperfections
so I can spend eternity with You!

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

1 Peter 1:7
King James Version

“That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
than of gold that perisheth,

though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honourand glory at the
appearing of Jesus Christ:”

Die, Old Man, Die

Die, old man, die
get thee out of my way
I want nothing of yours
so just die and go away.

Die, old man, die
I have no use for you
die to self and to flesh
for in Christ I am new.

Die, old man, die,
I’ll not follow your lead
die to worldly ambition
for Jesus is all that I need.

Die, old man, die,
you don’t rule this heart
die to all that is keeping
Christ and I apart.

Die, old man, die,
I will not let you win
die to all the trappings
I won’t give in to sin.

Die, old man, die,
get thee out of my way
for I will die to you . . .
so flee from me I say!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17
King James Version
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new

creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new. “

Change Me Lord ~

Change Me Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Change me Lord,
I know that I should be . . .
a different kind of person
than the one that I call me.

Change me Lord,
there’s so much You can do
take this old life of mine
and make me someone new.

Change me Lord,
from the inside out . . .
to trust in only You
without fear or doubt.

Change me Lord,
make my heart grow true
help me to see the sin
in the things I say and do.

Change me Lord,
show me what I do wrong
take away my weakness
make me someone strong.

Change me Lord,
till I see You’re all I need
to live my life just like You
in my every act and deed.

King James Version

unto an old garment, for that which is
put in to fill it up taketh from the garment,
and the rent is made worse.”

In Name Only ~

Some say they are Christians
but it’s in name only . . .
and one day they will wake up
to find that they are truly lonely.

Then they will understand,
to be a Christian it takes more
than waking up on a Sunday
and walking thru the church’s door.

Some say they belong to Jesus,
but they share no intimacy
and the Word that they feed on
is the same milk of their infancy.

For if, they were to hear the meat,
they would choke on its sinew
as it would expose their every sin
and their skepticism would shine thru.

Some say they’re attached to Christ,
by their works and good deeds
they brag about, how they go about
taking care of everyone else’s needs.

But, they are fast asleep,
and their works to God are dead
for their pride will not allow them
to be filled or Spirit lead.

Some say they love God,
but show Him not a bit of passion
they neither read nor pray
unless they need His compassion.

They are just too busy,
with other things in their life
and they only go to God
when they’re in a state of strife.

Some say they are Christians,
only for the name . . .
but, one day they will wake up
and stand before God in their shame!

Matthew 7:21

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he
who does the will of My Father in heaven. “
