THE DIFFERENCE

The way we see the world

Will determine our position,

As to what is important and or sacred

And accordingly make decisions.

If we believe that God has created

Everything that carries breath,

Then we see the richness of His grand creation

And where our lives won’t end at death.

But if we believe in evolution

And where there’s no eternal life at all,

We’ll maintain the position that when we die

We occupy that six foot hole.

Because if there’s no accountability

Towards the pure and holy Lord,

It’s when we believe that mankind came from apes

And where God’s judgement won’t be poured.

But if we believe that God has created

And there’s a purpose for everything,

Then the depth and beauty of His love

Much joy and peace will bring.

But if we believe that we came from apes

Then why do they still exist?

Shouldn’t they have been long forgotten

Or merely made extinct?

Many questions may occupy

Our heart and soul for sure,

Particularly the fact that evil exists

And whether God does care after all.

But it’s not God’s plan or in His heart

To harm or cause destruction,

But it’s our fallen nature that causes wars;

All derision and afflictions.

The soul that discovers the new birth

Will be inundated with love,

With peace and joy that kisses kindness

That emanate from above.

The difference is profound

And will determine our destiny,

As to whether we’ll be in God’s presence

Or apart from Him eternally.

Jesus hung on that wretched cross

To make a difference to our soul,

When His blood washed our transgressions

To give us eternal life behold!
