A New Creation Awaits ~

When you ask Jesus
into your heart
deliverance from sin
will spontaneously start.

When for your trespasses,
you ask Jesus to atone
living a sinful life
you’ll no longer condone.

When you ask Jesus,
to pardon your sin
regeneration
will promptly begin.

When for your sins,
you ask Jesus to forgive
your former way of life
you will not want to relive.

When you ask Jesus,
into your heart . . .
a new creation awaits
right from the start!

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold,
all things are become new.”

Sticky Note to God 04.26.15

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 04.26.15 ~


God Forbid ~

God forbid, I accept His grace,
then continue in my sin
shall I not let the old man die
so He can have victory within?

Is not holiness or godliness,
a thought not just to entertain
but one that I must put on
if in Christ, I am to remain?

Is grace so freeing,
that God’s Word plays no part
or shall it be every temptation
still takes hold of my heart?

Am I not to cast off the rags,
of my unrighteousness
or do I still hold onto the filth
the fallen state of my wickedness?

God forbid, I accept His grace,
asking Him for more and more
God forbid, I continue in my sin
and expect to enter heaven’s door!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:2
King James Version

“What shall we say then?
Shall we continue in sin,
that grace may abound?

God forbid. How shall we,
that are dead to sin,

live any longer therein?”

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. “
