Now That I am Alive ~

Now that I am alive,
I no longer conform . . .
to the ways of the world
nor to it’s social norms.

For with Christ living in me,
I now have a new life
releasing me from the issues
once causing me strife.

Now that I am dead,
to sin and transgressing
I can see how eternal hope
was once absent and missing.

For now that I am awake,
sober, alert and aware
with the world and its ideals
I’ve no longer a love affair.

Now that I am alive,
with the world behind me
I long for the day . . .
when with Jesus I’ll be!

1 Corinthians 15:22

For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall
all be made alive.

Ephesians 2:3-5

Among whom also we all had
our conversation in times past
in the lusts of our flesh,
fulfilling the desires of the flesh
and of the mind; and were by
nature the children of wrath,
even as others.

But God, who is rich in mercy,
for his great love wherewith
he loved us,

Even when we were dead in sins,
hath quickened us together with Christ,
(by grace ye are saved;)

In The Name of Tolerance ~

in-the-name-of-tolerance-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

God gave us His commands,
to follow and obey
but, that is not what’s taught
in some pulpits today.

Instead we’re being told,
the laws God once gave
can be changed to fit
however we want to behave.

They promote transgression,
in the name of tolerance
skewing the Words of Jesus
to suit their preference.

As the love for self grows,
so does our earthly desires
so they tell us we no longer
need to do what God requires.

God gave us His commands,
they’re written in the Good Book
but, so many for themselves
haven’t even taken a look!

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is quick,
and powerful, and sharper
than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing
asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents
of the heart.”
