A Responsibility and A Rap!

art-1703880__340

Our pastor was going over 1Tim 3 a few weeks ago and did an extremely good job with it. This is the chapter where Paul lays out the qualifications for church leaders like elders or bishops and deacons. It could have been a very dry, rather dull sermon, but he managed to bring it to life. The main lesson he wanted us to get was that yes our religious or church leaders have certain responsibilities, but we have the same responsibilities. We should all live clean lives before God for we are all a part of a royal priesthood assigned with the task of trying to lead people to Christ before it’s too late for them.

Heaven is real, but so is hell. Christ himself spoke of it as a place where there will be weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth and where the worm never dies and the fire is never quenched. Besides, if we love our neighbors then we will feel the responsibility to speak the truth, of course, always with love.

So do not be embarrassed or ashamed to say the name of Jesus of Nazareth in public, at work or at your grocery store. I wrote the following poem with that idea in mind. Love Him enough to be willing to take some persecution for His name’s sake.

 

Bold enough to Blush (With a Rap Rhythm)

Do not be ashamed
If a man
Said to die
on a cross
Comes to visit
your house.

Be Bold
To let him in
Tell a friend
Who He is.

Do not be Ashamed
Of Him
Before the others
Even if they Jeer
Turn a deaf ear

Throw a stone or two.

Be BOLD enough to BLUSH
If that’s what it takes
To speak His name

And Let Him in.

Jesus Saves.
Jesus Saves

Let Him in!!
