TRUST GOD…NO SERVICE NO GROWTH

The Apostle admonishes, “Grow in Grace!”

In service for the Lord!

Suggesting that there is no growth

If service we cannot afford!

.

.

Growth and service go hand in hand.

Not the one without the other!

We are not growing if we do not serve,

Like, helping a weaker brother.

.

.

Or service of some other sort,

Countless chores can be named!

The Pastor who is not naming them

Is surely to be blamed!

.

.

Many just, “Preaching the Word,”

Assuming, “This is it!”

Assuming identity only,

Glove just does not fit!

.

.

To fit one for the Kingdom of God,

No!  There is work to do.

“Not just works lest any should boast!”

But salvation, it is true!

.

.

However, we must identify

With the Christ who died.

Admonishing there is work to do!

For Jesus, the  crucified!

.

.

“Work the works of righteousness while,”

This life’s day so short.

Called we are to establish the fact

Saved!  And not to abort!

.

.

“Work!  For the night is coming.”  When

Man can work no more!

“The Lord is my portion, says the soul,

Therefore, I will hope in Him!” (*)

.

.

(*) Lamentations 3:24

.

.

the Sam just quoted!  10.23.12
