Drip by Drip


Hanging firmly in place

Tubes running through space

Into a vein 

Drip by drip 

Live saving liquid

By some unpronounceable name

Very toxic

Yet, intended to extend life

The paradox of some medicines


There is an invisible line 

From which drips the toxicity of sin

Which kills spiritually

Only gives death

It's remedy is the blood of Christ

Infused to cleanse the sin

To stop the steady drip 

To give Eternal Life


The first IV only given when all else fails!

The latter line is not a choice

It is inborn 

Only the blood of Christ 

Can change it

It is a choice


Life in Christ

Death in sin

What is your choice?

Not to make one is to choose Death!

Drip by drip!
