FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

God has given Man so much,
The world and all it's wonders,
And only asks we keep in touch,
And He'll heal all our blunders.

First He made the firmament,
Then He made the earth,
Filling it with beauty,
And all things of real worth;

Then from the earth He took some dust,
Enough to fill His hand,
And from the dust, in love and joy,
He fashioned the first man.

From the mouth of God, Almighty,
The man took his first breath,
And God said,"Cleave ye just to Me,
And never know ye death."

God bestowed upon the man,
All kinds of gifts and favors.
All that's good upon the earth,
Were his to have and savor.

Then Satan came onto the scene,
Envying our God,
Not satisfied with his estate,
He wanted to be God.

Throughout the centuries he's labored,
Deceiving all Mankind,
Trying to convince us,
It's time to change our mind.

The only way God can be hurt,
Is to steal the thing He loves,
And so he tries to take the man,
God bought back with His Blood;

For Man did stray a little while,
Deceived by the King of Thieves,
But Jesus came to buy us back,
And He's bringing in the sheaves.

The devil knows the time grows short,
So he's stepped up the pace.
Don't believe his lies this time,
Your life lies in God's Grace.



"FINALLY, BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE STRENGTH OF HIS MIGHT.
PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO STAND FIRM AGAINST 
THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL, FOR THE STRUGGLE IS NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT 
AGAINST THE RULERS, AGAINST THE POWERS, AGAINST THE WORLD FORCES OF THIS DARKNESS, AGAINST THE SPIRITUAL FORCES OF WICKEDNESS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.
THEREFORE TAKE UP THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RESIST THE EVIL DAY AND HAVING DONE EVERYTHING, TO STAND FIRM."
                                                            Ephesians 6:10-13
