BELIEVERS

John 1:10 "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that BELIEVE on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

BELIEVER…has a true conversion,
Like the martyrs of old;
Compromise…they would not,
In their faith…they were bold.

Would a man die for a lie?
Surely…he would not;
But, for the truth…standing fast,
His belief…all he's got.

Like Stephen, before they stoned him,
Raised his eyes toward Heaven;
And, he did behold JESUS,
Sitting at the right hand of our Father. (Acts 7:55,56)

The BELIEVER...endued with power,
Power from on High;
Has the power to live here on earth,
And, has the power, also…to die.

Holding firm to their persuasion,
Denying not our LORD;
Their lives a testimony,
To a loving…Eternal God.

UNBELIEVER…there is hope there,
Though he doubts and questions all;
Still, he is open-minded,
And, his mouth not filled with gall.

He doesn't try to be something,
Something that he is not;
He could be still "searching",
For something he's not got.

Sometimes pessimistic,
Or even skeptical;
Of someone still "searching",
This is typical.

He hasn't all the answers,
He's looking everywhere;
Sometimes in the strangest places,
But, give-up will he?…ne'er!

Someday the "light" shall go on,
Damascus Road…again;
Given a chance to believe,
We just don't know quite…when.

MAKE-BELIEVER…something quite different,
Always looking good…on the outside;
Perhaps raised in a church,
And, even been baptized.

The outside of the vessel,
Clean…as clean can be;
But, what lurks beneath the surface,
Not a pretty thing to see.

The outside of the vessel…polished,
Shining…as brand-new;
A pillar in the community,
Are these appearances…true?

Sometimes he thinks that he is "saved",
For, that's how he has been taught;
But, when the crunch comes,
All can see that he is not.

He's tried to do all things right,
Every day of his life;
Still, it's not enough,
Through the hardest times…to suffice.

What do you chose to be,
BELIEVER…UNBELIEVER…MAKE-BELIEVER?
One full of faith…one "searching",
And, one thinking he is a true receiver.

I'd rather be a BELIEVER,
Walking…daily with my LORD;
This thing called "life"…not,
Real life is in the Spirit….Spirit of our God.

True…the UNBELIEVER,
There's a bit of hope…there;
For the "searching" heart, God can deal with,
As he "searches"…everywhere.

MAKE-BELIEVER…there's the problem,
Outside of the cup so clean; (Mat. 23:25)
Will take a sovereign working of our God,
To show him…he's unclean.

But, with our God…all things possible,
No limits placed on Him;
His Love is far-reaching,
He will show us the cause and cure for sin!
