There is so much going on in the world around us and in our heart,
by Bob Gotti
That too often we forget that for a purpose we have been set apart.
That is to make an impact for Christ in the world, in which we live,
This can not be accomplished until our lives to Christ we fully give.
A heart that's fully devoted to The Lord that is evidenced in some,
Is accomplished not by one's efforts, but only through God's Wisdom.
The only way to gain the mind of God, to many may be truly loathsome,
Like ages past and today, the fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom.
The fear of God, unlike that of man, has nothing to do with violence,
For the fear of God in the Bible is a heart filled with reverence.
However, many who understand this Truth are filled with reluctance,
For the only way to gain this Godly fear is through true repentance.
Lack of true repentance in the Church today is why we lost our fire,
For many Believers have slipped off The Rock into the worldly mire.
But Jeremiah in a world like ours, surrounded by all kinds of sin,
Said The Word was a fire in his bones and was weary of holding it in.
We have much more than Jeremiah did, as the Scriptures are complete,
And Christ is at His Father's right hand as He rose to take His seat.
However, He's coming back again, this message the Church must impart,
To finish our job in the Church we need to reflect Jeremiah's heart.
