Be Sure!

God is GOOD!
Be Sure!
By: Maxine M.

‘Life is short, live for the moment!’ This is what the “world” has to say
Go ahead!! Give in to every indulgence & addiction…be happy, carefree & gay
When you are old, THEN you can find God…take time to pray

Forgetting we are “frail”, created only from dust
Created as a temple of God…NOT designed for debauchery & lust
Fame and fortune can’t save you, if that’s where you put your trust

So what if you died TONIGHT?
Suddenly awake in Judgement’s light
Consider!!, what would be your plight
What would happen if YOU died tonight?

You’re getting home late…your spouse says the children are already asleep
A gentle good-night kiss, then remembering the vows you said you would keep
You realize the heartache and the tears they would weep

If they knew you WEREN’T working late like you said
But just came from the arms of another instead
Does the mere thought of them knowing fill you with dread?

But what if you died TONIGHT?
Suddenly awake in Judgement’s light
Consider!!, what would be your plight
What would happen if YOU died tonight?

You were put in charge of the company’s finances just last year
Then a “personal emergency” FORCED you to “borrow” strictly out of fear
But now it’s become a way of life it would appear

JUSTIFICATION says, ‘they have so much, they’ll never miss the little I take’
Change a few numbers on a report…only you will know the profit line is fake
After all, you’re doing it for your family’s sake

But what if you died TONIGHT?
Suddenly awake in Judgement’s light
Consider!!, what would be your plight
What would happen if YOU died tonight?

“I’ll NEVER FORGIVE them!”, you angrily declare
What they did was WRONG!!, unacceptable, dishonest and totally unfair
Suddenly YOUR shoulders are stooped under the heavy burden you now bare

You know the bible states we MUST forgive…that’s a direct fact
But forgiving just isn’t the natural way YOU act
And you still have your righteous PRIDE intact

But what if you died TONIGHT?
Suddenly awake in Judgement’s light
Consider!!, what would be your plight
What would happen if YOU died tonight?

You sit in a church pew, but have you TRULY accepted God’s Son?
Turned over your LIFE to Him or have you evaded His face…from His embrace run?
Reasoning, what about those “good” things I’ve done?

Won’t they be enough to help me get in?
Pride says, “I’m just as good as OTHER men”
But isn’t it true, only HIS BLOOD can wash away sin?

But what if you died TONIGHT?
Suddenly awake in Judgement’s light
Consider!!, what would be your plight
What would happen if YOU died tonight?

Now these questions NEED an answer BEFORE death would occur
Know & learn how to have an affirmative answer…be perfectly sure
So it’s to the Sweet Old Gospel Story, to which we can refer

For it tells us how on the cross, full payment for OUR sins Jesus would bestow
All we need to do is ACCEPT, BELIEVE, CALL on His name…REPENTANCE show
The miracle of Salvation will bring this answer with a sure confident glow

I KNOW if I died TONIGHT
Suddenly I’d awake in Heaven’s Glorious light
No longer have to ponder my plight
I’d be with JESUS if I died tonight
