WATCH AND PRAY, JESUS’ VERY OWN WORDS

“That ye enter not into temptation.”

Temptation strong!  Devils a pro!

Bur fearing the Lord we can keep

With help of God, just say, “No!”

.

.

“Watch and pray,” that you do not give in

Primary!   Surely the best!

Temptation fails when we watch and pray!

Forgetting about the rest!

.

.

You can forget but the Christ does not!

“Abide in Me!”  Jesus cautioned us,

Sure, keep in mind the Adam and Eve!

Remembering we were once dust!

.

.

Abiding is this not the sure thing Jesus taught?

Study, read the Word, and pray!

Study always showing yourself approved

A workman inclined to stay!

.

.

“Watch and pray!”  Tempter then cannot

Find any place in which to hide!

See Him there claiming victory!

By Jesus’ blood-stained side!

.

.

Spear thrust while there on that cross!

His saving blood flowing down,

Submit to a bath in that cleansing flow,

Satan no longer around.

.

.

You just stay there, see Satanic loss,

He cannot do one thing!

But crow thinking he has won the fight

Wrong!  His demise to bring!

.

.

Calvary’s’ cross means Satanic loss!

Just how can this be?

Cross, Satan cannot touch any one of us!

The magic of Calvary!

.

.

No magic at all!  His death spells victory!

Died for all our sins!

Propitiation He claimed, cruel cross!

Our death like His own sin! (*)

.

.

(*) Only sinless One won!
