It’s one thing to be sincere
And another to be saved,
Because there’s a multitude of the kindest people
But who won’t acknowledge God or pray.
It’s one thing to be the sweetest soul
And another to be God’s child,
Because unless we’re adopted into His kingdom
In His eyes we remain defiled.
It’s one thing to be a happy soul
And another God’s heart to seek,
Because true happiness is found in holiness
In the humble and the meek.
It’s one thing to be nice
And another to persevere,
Because the tests and trials will arrive
And they reveal if we’re sincere.
Because it’s God’s commands and not our own
That really matter in the end,
Since our feelings will try to dictate
With all delusions that are sent.
The wheel is not re-invented
And has not been throughout history,
Because it’s the same patterns of behaviour
With good and evil that we see.
It’s one thing to portray a persona
And another as to how we feel,
Because only God knows the depths of our soul
And whether we’re being fake or real.
According to God the gate is narrow
And very few do find it indeed,
Because the gate to destruction is very wide
Where the multitudes will see.
We all fall short of God’s glory
Yours truly first and foremost,
But we all need God’s grace to overcome
And His forgiveness we need most.
It’s one thing to believe in Christ
And another to be on fire,
Because the lukewarm ones will be vomited
Or found out to be liars.
It’s one thing to love someone
And another to really do,
When we sincerely love God and our neighbour as well
Where the motive is sincere and true.
And it’s one thing to be faithful
And another to adore the Lord,
Let’s rise up and truly examine ourselves
As we repent and trust in His word.
