Are You Living a Lifestyle That the

Living A Lifestyle That the Bible Forbids!


I know of someone living a lifestyle that the Bible forbids.

He told me; “how dare anyone tell me how I should live!”


He added; “what I do is no one else’s business but my own.”

“No one can ever tell me what I do in my home!”


When given scripture that clearly forbids what he’s doing…

It’s the backward kind of life… That he’s choosing!


He claims Jesus is his lord, in spite of his moral depravity.

It’s like he has in his body, an “infected cavity.”


God gave to us his word with his holy instructions!

If we don’t obey, it’ll lead to our spiritual destruction!


It doesn’t matter if 10,000 churches say that it’s o.k. to do!

God requires a righteous and holy way of living, for me and YOU!


There are choices that we all have, that are there to be made!

Are you going to be victorious in Christ?  Or sin’s slave???


Have you thought about really living for Jesus?  And what it cost?

If we’re not sacrificing our lives for him, we’re forever lost!


If you’re one who’s caught up into a life filled with perversion…

May I introduce to the blood of Jesus?  And a righteous conversion?


God gave to each of us HIS rules and commandments to live by!

It’s either God’s rules, or man’s, that you’ll either live or die by!


Won’t you choose a life that God has chosen to give you?

He created mankind!  It’s no secret how much he loves you!


The opportunity is here!  It may never come again!

Won’t you let the power of Jesus break the bondage of sin?


Jesus can set you free!   Won’t you let him help you?

He’s patiently waiting…   Just because he wants to!

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!
