Our Job

Our Job

If we people who say
We believe Jesus Christ
is Lord, Savior & God
We truly, truly believe
He is truth, life & the way
Then isn’t it our daily job
To say so

Out loud
Not just in a church building
Where we feel safe
But out in a dangerous world
Where we could face
Ridicule, embarrassment 
Maybe even death

Or perhaps alone to be left
With no one, rejected, 
Unloved, a most severe test
Of our loyalty
But this is what He said
To do
If each soul down here is
To have a chance to be
Renewed

We are to be His hands, feet
Face & voice
His Messengers
This can be a most difficult
Choice
For anyone, a sacrifice to make
This suffering we must take
If we truly, truly love Him

For without a sacrifice, there is no love!
So do not tell Jesus you love Him if
You are unwilling to sacrifice to stay loyal to Him

If you deny me before men, I will deny you before the Father! Matthew 10:33





Sacrifice

If you are not willing to sacrifice anything (time, energy, Money, pleasure) to follow Christ then you do not love Him.

John 14:15 15If you love me, keep my commands.

Matt 16:24 Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.  26What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
