Let's Seek God's Holiness!

Let’s Seek God’s Holiness!


I read of a savior's love,.

 righteousness and glory.

I hear of a God who’s

 awesome and holy.


Without holiness, no man shall

 approach his throne.

If one day we want to make

heaven our home.


When it comes to holiness...

many have a different interpretation.

It's the sincerity of your heart

 that get's God's attention.


Many in church make

the idea of holiness a joke.

"I can be Christian and curse,

drink and smoke!"


It's what goes into your heart that

pollutes your 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 we’re complete!


Then an appetite for God's

holiness in you will arise.

A desire for God's beauty

 will captivate our eyes.


It's only in Christ where

 we 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

blessed  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!
