John 8:31 "To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
32 Then you will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you free."
Is your life built on half-truths?
That’s not a solid foundation;
In time…it shall crumble,
It’s the way to destruction.
We want to please others,
At the cost of the TRUTH;
We need to take a look at our lives,
Buy the TRUTH…sell it not…even from our youth.
As with everything,
There’s a price to be paid;
People may not like the real…us,
Sometimes wish the phony…we had stayed.
But that’s beyond ourselves,
And, right here is where it must begin;
There are those we know and love,
And, those who wear our patience thin.
But, let’s focus on ourselves,
For there’s enough to do…right here;
The TRUTH shall set us free,
And, the TRUTH is nothing to fear.
Embrace the TRUTH,
Buy the TRUTH and sell it not;
Let the Holy Spirit do His work,
His dealings are Eternal and cannot be bought.
There isn’t anything that He cannot do,
Nothing that He will not use;
Stay open and receptive to His gentle nudge,
We have everything to gain…nothing to lose.
Unlimited are His resources,
Perfect is His plan;
His ways are all-inclusive,
His desire…the very best for woman and man.
Sometimes a show that we watch,
Or something that we read;
A tiny child’s squeal of delight,
Perhaps us…in our greatest need.
The “LIGHT” goes on…we’re forever changed,
The TRUTH our great magnifier;
We see ourselves as we really are,
Content with the status-quo…never!
Is this a one-shot deal,
Oh, if it only were so;
But, it’s a life-long journey,
As closer to Father God…we grow.
We can choose to remain the same;
The earthly or the Heavenly,
For me…Heavenly is my aim.
A lasting work…the Holy Spirit does,
We’re being changed from glory…to glory;
Line upon line…as He reveals more,
Until we’re like Him…fully.
Our life…really His life coming forth,
Not merely a carbon-copy;
From the inside…out,
Transforming us, from glory…to glory!
There’s an air of great expectation,
Knowing what He’s begun…He shall complete;
An exciting adventure…we are upon,
And, our LORD has never known defeat.
Let Him change you from glory…to glory,
The foundation is solid…the TRUTH;
His “LIGHT” will dispel the darkness,
LET’S BE REAL!
