Lost in the silence of my being
Learning the Gospel
Fighting the war of my sin
Son of an Apostle
Sunday services and church clichés
Fearing God, worshipping preachers
Heaven in the book, hell on my mind
When you come, remember me oh Lord!
I’m quiet, lord I’m kind
love you but mostly I fear you
Jesus died, I know.
What does that really mean
Was he God, Spirit, Son?
Or a divine human being
So I’m counting seconds
When would this church service end?
Is it God I service or I, or is it eye service
If it’s not long, it’s too short
It’s not really what I want
To do, I’d rather not
Plus hasn’t he heard already?
Would being repetitive swiftly
Bring answers, I guess not
And the Bible’s full of stories
I enjoyed as a kid, Adam and Moses
Cain, Goliath and David the kid
Let all my enemies be destroyed! Amen!
Then, Father, bless my enemies Amen!
Lost, confused without a plain vision
The state of Serving Religion
Instead of Christ
The Manifest proof of God’s love
The very essence of my sanity
The precious Gem from up above
My only strength, our Ability
Some days are messy: others gloom
The Grace of Christ is always true
The things of life might fall to doom
But the love of God is forever new
Tomi Olugbemi 30/4/13
Jesus is the only way, no matter how “religious” and burdensome things tend to be. I’ve learnt that true Christianity is in the heart not necessarily what people can see. The pressure to be a Christian on the outside is much more intense when the mind lacks understanding of CHRIST. Until you really understand John 3:16 you’d remain confused. Pursue Christ not religion aka (a need to please God and people so you won’t go to hell). Finally, no matter how often you choose or are forced to go for church activities, always and I mean always know that knowing Christ is more Important. Jesus Loves You.
