Many Churches Are In Bad Shape

 Many Churches Are In Bad Shape!!!

Is it any surprise that so many
 churches are in a mess?
When many indulge in
 “the sins of the flesh.”

What once was considered sacred and dear…
Is slowly, but surely, beginning to disappear.

Too many are walking…
as if they’re “totally blind “
Feasting in “shameful acts”
 of just about every kind.

I often wonder; “what’s going on in people’s heads?”
As they so often defile their marriage beds…

As God looks down to earth… 
 What does he see?
So many of his children…  Sinning blatantly…

Where is the call for repentance? 
 And God’s awesome holy power?
What if Christ came today?  It could be this hour!

How many in church are
 ready to go  “this very instant?”
When it comes to living for God...  
They appear to be resistant…

As we look at what many
 churches are becoming…
First Peter reminds us that God’s
 judgment is coming!

May there be a hunger for his
 righteous way of living.
The church needs to come to him,,, 
 He is loving and forgiving!

Jesus is coming back for a bride… 
 Without a wrinkle or spot...
One that’s sold out to Jesus… 
 Sanctified.  And blood bought!
