Why would we risk our eternal salvation

For the temporary praises of man?

When we’re ashamed of the Lord Jesus Christ;

It’s too overwhelming to understand.

Why would we prefer the compliments

From all fair-weather of friends,

Rather than the eternal favour of Almighty God

With the assurance He so sends?

Why would we risk our eternal soul

For a crumb of momentary pleasure,

Rather than looking forward to God’s reward

And His everlasting treasure?

How could we risk something so profound

Knowing that God has created us,

And that all our dreams and hopes within

Will merely turn to dust?

It’s not worth risking our eternal soul

To be accepted in people’s eyes,

Because most times it’s insincere too

With motives in disguise.

People will always let us down,

It’s the fallen nature’s way,

But God is sincere and delivers us

As we cry out to Him and pray.

Let’s not risk our eternal soul

For the crumbs life has to offer,

And let’s repent for our ignorance

Or for being mockers and scoffers.

God is real and we’ll give account

And that day is drawing near,

Let’s examine ourselves if we’re in the faith

And whether our love and faith is sincere.

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”  Matthew 16:26

“Repent and let everyone of you be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 2:38
