Getting Saved Means Change

Getting Saved Means Change

Getting saved means change
Your heart has to yearn for God
To turn from sin to true repentance
And embrace the Christ of the Word
Conviction by the Holy Spirit
Your spirit knows there's a greater than it
It must surrender to the Saviour
Then for heaven your soul will be fit

Getting saved means change
don't let anyone fool you
If there's no change there's no Salvation within
It's so easy to say.."I've trusted Jesus"
Then they continue onward in sin
When the Spirit indwells the heart of a believer
Sinful ways...they get pushed out
God does...a thorough house cleaning
That's what Salvation is all about

Now praise Him the Cross is our glory 
We have believed and we're not the same
For if any man be in Christ
His life is definitely changed
Now it's no longer I that lives
But Christ... now living in me
I'm standing on His precious promises 
And shall throughout eternity!

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
