What Keeps You from Serving Our Lord
Do material things get in your way
of giving service to our Lord ?
We’re so busy with life and making a living
We forget to give thanks to God
for the many blessings along the way.
I wonder, what if on Judgment Day
you stood before the Lord Jesus
and He asked you in person what
have you done for Him.
Would you bow your head in sorrow
and say I’ve not done anything Lord.
For when in trouble we cry out
oh my Lord please help me end this pain,
I promise to go to church,
read my Bible and never forsake you again.
How quickly we forget when all
is well and life is again running along smoothly
and no time to stop and pray.
What kind of excuse would you give
for neglecting to serve Him?
Would you say you needed to provide
for your family, you’ve been busy,
when you know He has promised
to provide your every need.
An old hymn once asked the question
What would you give in exchange for your soul?
What are you waiting for to serve Him?
Are you waiting for when your youth is over
and you have grown old?
It may be too late then - He called you many times
but you refused to answer Him
and did not respond.
So my friend today is the acceptable day
He may not call again.
Think it over carefully, you may not have a chance tomorrow.
His word says he will come quickly and we never know when.
Please do not let him catch you serving Satan.
Return to God again
