Death

An Original Work / November 16, 2018

When death comes a knocking
On your door,
Will you be ready to
Meet your Lord?

Have you repented of
All your sins?
Have you made Jesus
Your Lord within?

Or,

Are you still living
Your life for self,
While you put Jesus
Up on the shelf?

Is your life consumed
With pleasing you?
Fulfilling your lusts
Is what you do?

Is life just a party
All for you?
Being entertained sticks
Just like glue?

Forgiven, you say,
You truly are,
So it doesn’t matter
You sin far.

Your idols? “No problem.
Got that licked.”
Tomorrow you learn
Another trick.

In circles you travel
Round and round,
While true peace with God
Is never found.

And, one day death
Will be at your door.
And, God no longer
Can you ignore.

You’ll have to answer
For what you did
With Christ’s sacrifice,
So you might live.

So, don’t play around with
Time you have,
For time’s not your friend,
And, you’ll be had.

Surrender your life up
All to God,
Or be ye prepared to
Face his rod.

For, Jesus died to free
You from sin.
Let his Spirit come to
Live within.

Forsake your idols and
Turn to God.
Believe in Jesus
To be your Lord.

Trust in Jesus with all
of your life.
And, give your heart to him.
Do what’s right.

Jesus will forgive all
Of your sins
When you repent and
You follow him.

Then, you can be sure,
When at death’s door,
That you will be meeting
Christ your Lord.
