Automatic Reward (1) - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

The Lord reveals Salvation’s plan –1Co.2: 10
When through His Lamb we pray –Jn.14: 13-14
He says that through the fall of man –Gen.3: 1-24
There’ll be a judgement day –Heb.9: 27

Where man accounts for every crime –Ro.6: 23
Must settle every score –Mt.5: 25-26
Ordained by God, are place and time –Ro.9: 15
To execute His law –1Co.2: 9

We see His judgement all too clear –Deut.28: 58-68
Through penalties we pay –Jdg.16: 21
A few receive right now and here –1Pe.4: 17
Others the youngest day –Rev.20: 15

For some God gives to test a child –Job.23: 10
For some to suffer strife –Ac.12: 19-23
That many may be reconciled –Deut.8: 1-5
And raised to endless life –2Co.5: 11-21

Yet most rewards await a deed
Require a certain key
According to our planted seed
A door, we’ll open free

Automatic is God’s reward –Deut.28: 1-14
His judgement’s always sure –Deut.28: 15-68
For some its life, for some the sword –Jn.3: 36
Depending on the door.Eze.7: 3

The door to life by righteous deed –Jn.14: 6
Or death by wayward sin –Pr.16: 25
According to the life we’ve led
Which door we’ve entered in

To every door we have a key –Deut.30: 19
The power to see inside –Heb.8: 11
The one to whom we bow our knee –Eph.4: 12
Is sure to open wide –Eph.4: 27…PTO…
