God Wants Us to Be Holy!

God Wants Us to Be Holy!


The Bible speaks of a savior's  

 righteousness and glory.

It reminds us of a God who’s

 awesome and holy.


Without holiness, no man shall

 approach his throne.

If one day we expect to make

heaven our home.


When it comes to holiness...

many have a different interpretation.

It's the sincerity of our heart

 that get's God's attention.


Many in church have made

the idea of holiness a joke.

"I can be Christian, curse,

drink and smoke!"


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 word

 will keep us from lies.


It's only in Christ alone where

 we'll find a true treasure.

We won't want the things anymore

 that once gave us "pleasure."


Holiness from God is ours,

 for the asking.

It will 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!
