If we’re serious about seeking God
We will search with all our soul,
And cry out for Him to reveal Himself
And He will answer us behold!
But we need to be serious
Because it is no trivial thing,
To discover the Father’s love for us
And the blessings this so brings.
If we’re serious in following God
We must be fully aware,
That once the Holy Spirit comes to dwell
He eliminates unnecessary cares.
And one by one but surely indeed
When we’re progressively sanctified,
The love to sincerely see souls saved
Becomes the apple of our eye.
When we’re serious about relationships
We should remain loyal and faithful indeed,
Putting the needs of others first
And to encourage with good seed.
Our seriousness will turn to joy
When we know God is in control,
As He gives us the much needed peace
That we crave from our soul.
But we’ll appear to be arrogant
In the eyes of those who don’t believe,
However, excuses and walking in the flesh
Only come so they’ll deceive.
And we must always remember
That in our finest day indeed,
We still have the fallen nature
Hence the need for Jesus to intercede!
And we must be serious in our walk
If we’re to overcome our sins,
Knowing the battle is fierce every day
Where both sides they wish to win.
The spiritual realm is not flippant
Since there’s a war that’s going on,
And we must be clothed with the full armor
So powers of darkness will be gone.
Let’s be serious about eternity
Because society will make us slumber,
And place us into a mode of sleep
And into an entertainment wonder.
Jesus was serious about the cross
When He face the worst agony,
But it was our faces that He so desired to see
In His glorious eternity!
