When does it begin?
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account (Hebrews 4:13).
At age 10
when you sneak a porn mag?
For everything in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-comes not from the Father but from the world (1 John 2:16).
At single and 20
when you sleep with many?
and your hands are dirty
with the blood of another
or because you stole from your brother
You shall not steal (Exodus 20:15).
Unconfessed secret sin
is the beginning of your end
He knows all your heart
What could you gain by keeping sin a secret part?
Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy (Proverbs 28:13).
Jesus draws a line
Obey my teachings and love each other divinely
If you love me, keep my commands (John 14:15).
For I AM the vine
You who are Mine
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5).
are never in shame
or condemned in vain
Therefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2).
We are one
I AM the Risen Son
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die” (John 11:25).
Whatever it is you have held at bay
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
Be cleansed with My forgiveness
Of all unrighteousness
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
The road is narrow and long
you may hear whispers that you don’t belong
because of your sin …
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).
That is not My voice you are hearing
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all He created (James 1:18).
Sin is in you
Allow me to live there too
For it is by My blood,
the blood of the lamb
that we will be together again ~
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Thank you for joining the journey to the Cross. I am trying to alternate where I make posts, here and http://www.juliedibblewrites.wordpress.com. However, I have been under stress these past few days and am just sitting down to hear His voice. This poem was born.
Please let me know how this worked with adding the Scripture study in small font in between. God wanted all these Scripture included. I pray now that He speak to you in this post.
