Sin is Knocking

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.

[Lu. 9:23-25; Rom. 6:1-23; Rom. 8:1-17; Eph. 4:17-24; Eph. 5:3-6; Gal. 5:19-21; Gal. 6:7-8; 1 Co. 6:20; 2 Co. 5:15, 21; Tit. 2:11-14; 1 Pet. 2:24]

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.”

  1. May we continually be aware of our sin and repent as soon as we realize what we have done. The more we abide with the LORD daily, the more we will be convicted of our sins. As my Pastor would say: do not MOCK the Cross!

  2. So I’m nearing 20. I won’t gloss over my situation and I’m not begging for pity. I used to do that to the point it became like a drug.

    I was raised in a good home. But I seem to make every wrong choice ever. So I have no sad backstory to give excuse for my actions. I’d be stoned in the Old Testament for sure.

    I don’t know if I ever FULLY surrendered to Christ and stuck with it I’m extremely double minded most likely demonized…I have some ease at overcoming certain sins others feel impossible because of what I have to lose. I am very interested in just keeping the peace and going with the flow but something in me hates it

    I hate feeling like a liar.
    Lying that I’m more Godly than I really am…it’s not true
    Lying that I don’t care about anything because I’ll cry when I’m alone because I know I’m lost,

    That’s how I’d describe it. I have religion but I hate it.

    I’d daydream about sex all the time to ease the pressure from religion. I think at one time my relationship with God may of been genuine but it’s possible it wasn’t because at the time I was lonely and had little friends.

    I overcame certain sins but God did miracles for people that doesn’t mean they became disciples

    I always was selfish. Manipulative. Secretive. Disgusting.

    I’ve used God. I’ve used His people…stubborn as hell. This passionate drive to keep running to evil yet reminded nonstop that I should give it *ALL* to Christ…..

    I have a lot of regret. I have a hard time seeing anything genuine about me when I’d trade love for lust or light for darkness If the latter had something satisfying

    I’m helpless with all of this and I think that’s the point. I used to think I was honest noble and etc…talking about celebs and how wicked they are

    And turns out I’m worse

    Always been vain.

  3. I didn’t mean to post it without adding…I feel so stuck in this pit I dug that I panic at the thought of getting out even tho the idea sounds wonderful…I don’t know if I was ever really born again….but if I was…I really let God down and put myself in the worst place possible.

    I’ve tried btw to stop sins in my own effort or only to appease God but it’s still selfish I ended up sinning more. It’s like a small clawed animal trying to climb out of a bathtub
