Labels May Mislabel


What are you?

Baptist, Pentecostal Holiness, Methodist, Presbyterian, Wesleyan?

Protestant  or Catholic? or??

You may carry a label saying what you are by denomination


But what about your heart?

What is it's label?

Are you "born again" of the Spirit?

Do you know Chris abides in your heart by faith?

Are you assured of Heaven as you walk in the Light?

Do you have ready praise for your Savior?


Have you been baptised?  Did it make a difference?

Do you take communion with fellow believers in confession and praise?

Are you living for God or for self?

What is your label?

Trust it is Christian by "new birth"

And walking in the Light


Good works only will get you the praise of men

But what of God?  

We cannot work our way to Heaven

It is only by the application of the shed blood of Christ

Allowing His love to flow through us to a lost world


Where is your lost world?  Where is your love coming from?

Where is your lost world? Where is  your love coming from?

Is your label a mislabel?


Label May Mislabel (c)2015 Quentin Clingerman
