I'M Only Passing Through - Poem by Bob Gotti
I'm only passing through this place, as I'll be heading home one day,
My Hope is far beyond this place, for someone pointed me to The Way.
For Christ is The Way, The Truth, The Life for all who will believe,
Christ changed the path of this hopeless soul with just a tiny seed.
I was purchased with The Blood of Christ out of this market of sin,
I was then planted on The Eternal Rock and given a new life to begin.
As I was redirected on a new journey to my Palatial Home in Heaven,
The Holy Spirit began to remove from my life fleshly sin and leaven.
Jesus Christ was crucified only once for all, to demonstrate the way,
But we my friend, must crucify our sinful flesh each and every day.
Salvation happens only once, at the very moment you truly believed,
But Sanctification continues on until at The Kingdom we are received.
For Holy, Holy, Holy is The Lord, and so will The Coming Kingdom be.
That is why The Spirit must have His way with souls like you and me.
For if anyone is in Christ, by God's Grace he becomes a new creation,
And our life is to be used by God to point others to God's Salvation.
For we are only passing through and we are not of this present world,
And as we journey Home we have only one message in which to herald.
Jesus died for all our sins, was buried, and on the third day raised,
He's coming back again my friend, and by all tongues will be praised.
