‘I NEVER KNEW YOU’

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.
