Without Holiness No Man Shall See

Without Holiness…   No Man Shall See God!


I know of someone with a degree in divinity.

He can tell you all about God and the trinity.


He memorized much scripture

 from God’s word.

A message each Sunday from him, can be heard.


While he has so much theology

 in his head.

A message of holiness from

 his lips won’t be said.


He thinks preaching on holiness is “judgemental..”

His position in church wouldn’t be “instrumental.”


God call of his followers to lie of holiness!

Without this,  your life is filled with emptiness!


Think about Job who was called a righteous man.

He sought Godly living over

 his house and land!


Are you seeking a life of holiness from within?

So your life won’t be burdened down with sin?


Perhaps living 100% for God seems “old fashioned.”

We need to seek God’s holiness

 as a daily passion!


“Come out from the world and be separate!”

 God commands!

This is a truth from his word many

 don’t understand.


All of the theology in this world

 can’t save your soul.

If the things of this world,

you refuse to let go!


A victorious life in Christ is what

 you can achieve!

Simply surrender your life to him….

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!
