Living for Jesus
I was reading in my Bible this morning
About the sower who sowed the seed
How some fell on good ground
Sprang up but was choked by the weed.
From this parable I got the message
That whatever we sow we will reap
So it behooves all of us daily
To be strictly honest and never cheat.
The life we live is recorded
In that Book of Life in Heaven
So all of our deeds should be good ones
And if so they will work like leaven.
How nice it is to live for Jesus
As He gives us the things we need each day
But when we meet with misfortune
We should get down on our knees and pray.
We should not expect to be carried
To Heaven on flowery beds of ease
Nor depend on the Blood of Jesus
To cure each and every one of our disease.
He has given us our Doctors
To whom we may go when sick
And not to be discouraged
If they do not cure us real quick.
It is written in the Holy Scriptures
That He chastens those whom He loves
And we should all be very patient
And not go crooning like a flock of Doves.
When He was on this earth teaching
People followed Him wherever He went
Wanting Him to cure all of their diseases
But thatís not why from Heaven he was sent.
We all know the wonderful story
Why God sent Him down to this earth
To give His life for a ransom
And that was the reason for His birth.
Now that we all know the story
We should never cease to pray
As the kingdom of God is within us
All through each and every day.
