Time To Be Revived
Christians in this land have so much if we would only open our eyes,
by Bob Gotti
Unfortunately many keep them closed while they cry I'm so deprived.
As “One Nation Under God” we have so many pleasures known to man,
While the Faith that brought us here, for so many, is one big sham.
When Jesus Christ lived on earth, He had no place to rest His head,
And we enjoy prosperity while living a life that's spiritually dead.
The Lord said I have come that they might have life more abundantly,
He was not talking of this world's goods, but our lives spiritually.
The abundance He comes to give is Peace in Christ, His Joy and Love,
Our abundant life is in Christ and it is filled by The Spirit above.
Jesus Himself said but seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
If you do this you will be filled abundantly with joy and happiness.
For when you seek The Lord, who is The Truth, He will set you free,
Free from daily concerns with a Hope that points others to Eternity.
But instead of living free just like Paul, who was filled with zeal,
We often focus too much on our earthly needs, like a simple meal.
Isaiah said that through Jesus on The Cross, the world God did heal,
Christians gave Christ their life when at The Cross they did kneel.
As new creatures in Christ, at The Cross, our wants were set aside,
With many still in need, it's time to open our eyes and be revived.
