Friendship With The World - Poem by Bob Gotti
Friendship with this evil world turns your Love for God into hatred,
As one who is a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God instead.
We were bought out of this Market of Sin when Christ died and bled,
Christians are alive in Christ and to this world we should be dead.
As Believers we are the Body of The Church and Christ is the Head,
And rather than following The Lord's lead we go our own way instead.
But once saved by His Grace we should have only one thing in mind,
That of course is sharing The Good News of God with All of mankind.
As Paul said that some are ignorant of God and this is to our shame,
Many go on quietly believing in The Lord as they profess His Name.
He also said Come back to your senses as you ought and stop sinning,
We still have the same task at hand, which is serious Soul Winning.
Just look around and you can see a true Darkness that seems to lurk,
For the Day is almost over and Night is coming when no one can work.
And as days get darker and much more evil we must redeem the time,
For we have been bought for a purpose and my life is no longer mine.
Paul makes it clear, that to this world we are not to be conformed,
Instead through The Holy Spirit our hearts should be transformed.
For God and Christ, it was serious work when He died for you and me,
And we are obligated to live Sanctified lives so others can believe.
