Hard Words Hard words fill the air Rotating, flipping everywhere But Did you know In an ancient Holy Book If you dare to take a look Are also found hard words Such as, In a great Revelation ‘niether cold nor hot’ ‘I am about to spit You out of my mouth’ Hard to hear But spoken in a prophet’s ear We must take up that cross, Whatever form of pain It takes, And follow Him If not, He says we’re not worthy Of Him His salvation no one can win Without a struggle Against a lost world’s sin We are His salt But if we lose His Spirit’s flavor No longer us will He exalt But be dropped Ground into earth’s dust No longer us will He adopt To be His very own We must follow His commands Rebuking the sin Found lingering within Each man’s hands Without obedience Like the rest We too will be lost Left among a darkness So totally distraught Today God’s people need to Follow His voice Make, even if it is, A difficult choice Stay true to His words spoken Don’t throw only a slight token Of your lukewarm affection Commit to the Spirit’s fire As it comes to lift you higher Than a mere man’s imagination Within his small soul can begin to ever, ever comprehend! Revelation 3:14-16 These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness of, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either one or the other! So because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Matthew 10: 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
