Before I found the truth of my need for a Savior, I thought I was doing ok but I really was completely on the wrong track. Sometimes even now that I am on the right path, I may feel I am giving God my all only to find I need His help to stay in unity with the body of Christ.
Divided; trying to be one with God and man,
Surely its temptation you understand.
Divided… a part of not the whole.
Divided cannot be when concerned with the soul.
God requires your undivided love
He cannot allow anything dissented in heaven above.
For all are to be joined in perfect accord;
United in completeness with the Lord.
Man’s ways are at odds with God’s plan.
He desires to rule his own land;
Preferring self on the throne not Christ.
There is no need of a Savior for he feels he is alright.
Pride takes him to the place where division stays;
When refusing to submit to God and His ways.
Life is fast passing–if you do not the truth accept
Division and discord expect.
Come, give all your heart and you will be whole.
For to be lukewarm – is to have a divided soul
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
