What a tragedy it would be
To devote our lives to a particular cause,
But when we stand to give an account to God
We won’t enter through His doors.
Because the worst words that we can hear
Are the dreaded ‘I never knew you;’
Since our heart and devotions on this earth
Didn’t align with God’s to be renewed.
What calamity and what a dread
To realise that we were deceived,
Preferring the temporary praises of so-called friends
Rather than God’s favour for eternity.
What a tragedy and a profound loss
If our soul is not redeemed,
And where the inevitable we need to face;
A hopeless eternity to see!
Because the devil indeed manifests himself
And portrays as an angel of light,
To steal, to deceive and to take our soul
If we don’t stand to fight the good fight.
It’s not a laughing matter
But one to take so seriously,
Because eternity is forever
Where we cannot cross that boundary.
The good news is that Jesus Christ
Died in our place to give us life,
And was resurrected after three days
When He won the spiritual fight.
When we accept and receive Jesus Christ
As our Lord and Savior too,
We sincerely repent for all our ignorance
As He makes all things new and true.
God’s wrath was placed on Christ;
On His beloved one and only Son,
Since a pure sacrifice was required
To be a propitiation for everyone.
For everyone who trusts in the Father
Though our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Who understand the sacrifice that was required
So with God we are made right.
