Sin Is An Inside Job

Sin Is An Inside Job

Sin is an inside job
For it comes from within the heart
It challenges our decisions
Whose will, will it impart
Which master shall we serve
And be a servant to
Our works will give off evidence
As to which one we have choosed

I've met some individuals
Who say that they know God
Yet when under observation
They must have misunderstood
For God says if you love me
You must keep...my commands
And they run roughshod over this
And leave off God's demands

In conversational matters
Their words should bring a blush
Showing a neglect to check their heart's
When words are uttered such
Let no corrupt communication
Spew forth from our lips
Unless your heart is fixed on Christ
You'll not have none of this

There's a cavity that needs filling
To bring us liberty
To offer up praises to our God
And do it willingly
With a joyful disposition
Because we've been redeemed
We can order our conversation upright
Because of the Master we esteem!

O for changed heart's Father
That Your Word can lead us to
And see sin in its significance
To what paths it can lead us to
Then to have a will to change
Lord...make a brand new me
So that I may serve You Lord
And enjoy You eternally!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
