Those who don’t seek to obey, seek to rebel,
there is no nuetral ground:
and those who in this manner live,
in Heaven will not be found.
If we don’t live to love his Word,
then we hate it sure enough:
though we may talk a goodly talk
God sees right through our bluff.
We seek his will or seek our own
“thine all” or “mine” it is.
We can’t serve God and mammon:
we love our own way or His.
We worship the lamb by our life and lip,
or worship our own image.
All we obey or disobey
reveals to whom we pay homage.
Don’t be deceived and go your way
in all your selfish ambition:
best to repent while there’s still time,
not justify your position.
Jesus is author of eternal salvation
to all that obey only him.
To think you’re safe to disobey,
is a gross and foolish whim.
You must love him only with all your heart,
your body, your soul, and your mind.
No second place lovers can be allowed
or a two-timin’ harlot we find.
Love not the world or the things therein,
is a clear commandment of God.
Set your affections on things above,
and on in that narrow way trod.
