People buy lies everyday,
Repackage & resell them willingly.
The cost, falsely appears free.
It’s a seemingly never ending cycle.
Well, the end being death.
“They die for a lack of knowledge.”
They reject Life.
Life being all that is Good.
Why don’t they wanna live holy?
They weigh Life & Death.
The penalty for Death clearly out weighs Life,
But they still foolishly choose Death.
“They die for a lack of knowledge.”
‘Life costs way too much and is too much work!!’
Do they not know that Life has already been paid for,
That they were bought at a cost?
Do they not know of the One who was sacrificed
Has already done all the work?
No, they continually shun Him.
They have scales over their eyes.
They are bounded by themselves,
Though they no longer are chained by sin.
“They die for a lack of knowledge”
Why not simply choose Life?
Ask questions later,
What do you have to lose?
HA, I think I could name a few:
Pain—it’s already been paid for!
Bondage—He bled for that too!
Your past, all the hurt—for Him that’s EASY!
Need I go on?
Let go of the pseudo blessings,
And choose to bear the TRUE blessings,
The fruits of the spirit.
Stop carrying weight that is not meant for you.
Yes, He died for you too!
Drop the nail & hammer from your hand,
Yes, you’re nailing Him too!
Let go of your past,
For the past no longer holds a place for you.
Stop carrying the cross that is not yours to bear.
Let go & let Him do a work in you,
Before it is too late.
Time waits for no man,
And these days it’s flying!
Choose KNOWLEDGE & wash away the ignorance.
He’s waiting, are you gonna make that move?
For, “They die for a lack of knowledge”.
“Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.” - Isaiah 5:13 (KJV)
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being priest to Me; Because you have forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget your children.
The more they increased, The more they sin against Me; I will change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of My people; They set their heart on their iniquity. And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds.” - Hosea 4:6-10 (NKJV)
” Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, ‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?’ Jesus said to him, ” ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all of your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” - Matthew 22:35-40 (NKJV)
Choose. Pray this with sincerity & God will do the rest! :
Heavenly Father, I know that I have sinned against you and that my sins separate me from you. I am truly sorry. I now want to turn away from my sinful past and turn to you for forgiveness. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, that He was raised from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become my Savior and the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You and to convict me when I sin. I pledge to grow in grace and knowledge of you. My greatest purpose in life is to follow your example and do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
