The Word

The devil does not care how often you go to church (in fact some false idea of security may help damn you), or if you work for the church (a “club” in many cases) or even if you are a minister, as long as you control the smallest 1% of your life; satan HAS you unless and until you give God all – that is A.

Poison ivy didn’t grow in the bowers of Eden

Or, if it did, it wasn’t poisonous there.

And the wolf didn’t live in the glens of the Garden

Or, if so, he was gracious to share.

We can look back in anger at Adam’s great sin

And we can wish to have lived in his place.

But there cometh a day much like Eden and better,

For all the redeemed,

ALL the redeemed of our whole race.

Friend, WHY are you obeying Christ?
