An Original Work / October 15, 2019
Sin is knocking at your door,
Knocking, knocking, don’t ignore;
Working its way in your heart,
Hoping from truth you’ll depart.
Don’t deny you’re tempted to
Do what you ought not to do.
Don’t pretend you’ll not give in
When you’re playing now with sin.
Subtle, coming through back doors,
Is this sin you can’t ignore.
Soon as you think, “Got it licked!”,
It will bite you, and it’s quick.
Got no plans for conquering?
Think it’s just a casual thing?
“No big deal!”, the lie you tell,
Which will lead you straight to hell.
“God forgives me,” so you say,
While with your sins you do play.
Make of God’s grace mockery,
For He died to set you free!
“Jesus’ grace will cover all”
Is a story big and tall
When you practice doing wrong
And think you to God belong.
“Liar, Liar!” Bible says,
When you put not sins to death,
Yet while claiming fellowship
With our Savior and his kin.
He says you must turn around,
Turn from your sins, love abound.
Obey freely what he tells,
Or your home will be in hell.
Don’t take lightly what I say,
For your sins you’ll have to pay,
If you do not turn from sin,
Let God’s Spirit dwell within.

Genesis 4:6-7 ESV: The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.”
