Be Prepared With a Reason


Be prepared in and out of season, to give all men a heartfelt reason,
For all the peace you have within, through the hope you have in Him.
The Hope we have in Jesus Christ, the sure hope of an Eternal Life,
An Eternal Life with Christ our Lord, in Heaven with Him forevermore.

We must point all men to the cross, that place of comfort for the lost,
Where Christ had died for all of us, where all believers put their trust.
Friend, our trust is in The Sacrifice, of God’s Only Son, Jesus Christ,
The Sinless Lamb for sinful men, The Lord who died for all my friend.

Christ gives to believers a New Birth, while we’re still upon this earth,
Upon the moment that we believed, The Holy Spirit we then received.
The Spirit was sent by Jesus Christ, for guiding us in this present life,
To guide us through all the years, until that day when Christ appears.

Friend, all our hope is found in Him, The One who died for all our sin,
And this hope we have my friend, unlike life on earth, shall never end.
When Christ died and rose again, He secured eternal life for all men,
And very soon Believers shall rise, to meet our Lord above the skies.

Friend, our Hope is really a guarantee, that we shall live for Eternity,
The Hope in what we can not see, through Christ will become reality.
And this Hope is for all my friend, for life on this earth is not the end,
Today put your hope in Jesus Christ, and you will inherit Eternal Life.

    When then come walk with us Poetry Hound:

    He then brought them out and asked, 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved? '
    They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.' (Acts 16: 30-31)



    Moses describes in this way the righteousness that is by the law: 'The man who does these things will live by them.' But the righteousness that is by faith says: 'Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven? '' (that is, to bring Christ down) 'or 'Who will descend into the deep? '' (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead) . But what does it say? 'The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, ' that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord, ' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.' For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'
    How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, 'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news! '
    (Romans 10: 5-15)

    Hey Bob, I just realized that many Christians don’t really care about Jesus. They just want to live forever. So if that involves mandatory falling in love with some invisible first century guru named Jesus, there’s no question they’ll do it. Who would pooh pooh living forever? I’ll fall in love with anyone or anything for a backstage pass to eternity. And if the alternative is having my head crushed in a vise grip or having hot coals stuffed into my mouth, then whoa! Quick! Sign me up! Scripture Shmipture. I just want to live forever in a pain-free environment. (Report) Reply
