You Can Be Dead
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

YOU CAN BE DEAD


 


You can be dead in trespasses and sins


And still be walking around


Dead to God and all He is


No feet on Spiritual ground


By that I mean the Spirit of Christ 


Without It your none of His


Robing yourself in your own righteousness 


And living for self to please


 


Unaware  of sin's devastation 


The blight it is to the soul


Living on with no realization 


There's a life that can be whole


The Spirit of God is constantly seeking


And through the heavenly Father's eyes


Is watching for a heart discerning 


Not one that is worldly wise


 


One that has caught a glimpse of Glory


That God is really there


And has a better plan for your life


To lead you from despair


None a hopeless situation


There's help for everyone 


Available through Jesus Christ 


God's only begotten Son 


 


Leading us not into temptation 


But delivering us from sin


Full redemption's price has been paid


Ours is to trust in Him


Then the "light of the world " Lord Jesus 


Will give you "spiritual life"


You'll become alive to God in Him


And aware you are " alive! "

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
