God Requires Holiness!

God Asks For Holiness!


I read of my God’s love!

His righteousness and glory.

I also read of a God who’s

 awesome and holy.


Without holiness, no man shall

 approach his throne.

If one day you expect to make

heaven your home.


When it comes to holiness...

many have their interpretation.

It's the sincerity of the heart

 that get's God's attention.


Many in church have made

the idea of holiness a “fatality”.

As they chase things that

are mere vanity!


It's what goes into your heart that

pollutes our eternal soul.

The blood of Christ needs to cleanse

 and make us whole!


When we totally fall in love with

Jesus and lay at his feet.

It'll be our hunger for his

 righteousness that'll be sweet!


Then an appetite for God's

holiness in us will arise.

A desire for God's beauty

 shall captivate the eyes.


It's only in Christ alone where

 we find true treasure.

We won't want the things anymore

 that once gave us pleasure.


Holiness from God is ours!

Just for the asking.

It’ll lead us into a life that’s

 complete and everlasting!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
