Sin Will Cost You!

Sin Will Cost You!


As many are encouraged to “indulge within...”

They often become caught and trapped in sin!


Far too often, there’s an enticement to “fantasize.”

Of the many temptations flashed before the eyes!


There’s a problem, too often misunderstood!

Life doesn’t happen, like many think it should!


What’s often acted out and too often displayed…

Comes from a ruined life, that’s been betrayed!


One can easily find perversion of many kinds.

This can easily “overwhelm” someone’s mind!


I know that it’s easy to be “trapped and snared.”

It can leave one feeling

alone and scared!


That which you may have craved,

 for some kind of fulfillment.

Has left you empty!  With no real enjoyment!


It’s easy to fall into bondage!  Difficult to get out!

Victory in Jesus is what his power is all about!


Won’t you call on him now? 

And let his love “soak through?”

He brings true meaning in the words; “I LOVE YOU!”


His love is not in some kind of cheap entertainment!

Only he can bring true peace and contentment!


You don’t need to spend money on the life he brings!

He is God!  And doesn’t need to use earthly things!


Sin has a price!  It seeks to have your eternal soul!

Only the blood of Jesus can make you complete and whole!


The gift of salvation is from Jesus and is freely given!

He alone has the power to change

 how you’re livin’!

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!
