Let's Obey God And Not Man!

Let’s Obey God And Not Man!


I heard of a minister living a life of perversion.

She traveled with a message of conversion.


She would tell others that she was ordained.

But her lifestyle dishonored Jesus’ holy name.


She preached love and acceptance all around.

She was proud to do this all over town.


This is not true Godly and righteous living.

What kind of life, before God,

 is she giving?


Is this a life that brings an unholy abomination?

This is the kind of life which brings

down a nation!


In God’s word, let’s obey God’s

holiness and rules.

Sexual perversion will turn as all into fools!


Let’s come before God with repentance in mind!

Let’s seek his holiness while there’s still time!


Man’s ordination doesn’t mean one thing!

If the life we live is spiritually UNCLEAN!


It’s the word of God’s truth we need to seek!

Without his complete word,

we’re spiritually weak!


Living a life of Godly holiness is the key!

Walking in God’s power and true victory!


Let’s seek God’s approval

and not that of men!

Let’s come before God

and be FREE from our sin!

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!
