Sin will always keep you longer
Than you really want to stay.
The clutch of sin will grow the stronger
The more from Christ you drift away.
You will walk a slippery slope
The more that you embrace the grave.
The end will come without a hope.
Then comes the overwhelming wave.
If you are trapped in the mud and mire,
Call upon the Name Supreme.
Salvation being your desire,
Jesus Christ will then redeem.

Author's note: The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through sixteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."
Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
