Wearing Sin!?!







Some of Us Wear Sin Like Deodorant!
It is Like 24 Hour On Duty!
It is Only Discovered When It's Protection Has Failed 
For Lack Of Scheduled Maintenance Renewal!

Some of Us Wear Sin Like Perfume!
It Smells Good On Us!
The Sin Is Only Discovered When
It Shows Up As The Covering Scent Wears Off!

Some Of Us Wear Sin Like Mouthwash!
As Long As We Keep our Mouths Washed
There Is Hope Of Discovery!
Lack of Reapplication And The Stench Comes Out!

Some Of Us Wear Sin Like Nail Polish!
The Ugliness Is Covered Up 
Until The Polish Starts To Crack
And Chip and Peel Off, and 
Suddenly
Whoops! There It Is! 
The Certain Exposure!

Some of Us Wear Sin Like Good Diapers!
Nothing Leaks Out!
Problem Comes When We Forget 
To Make The Needful Change 
In Padded Protection, and 
The Stench Wafts Out and Up, and 
There Is The Amazing Discovery!

I Don't Know About You,  Friend
BUT
I've Worn All
Of Sins' Camouflage!

I've Walked Like A Pillar Of Society
AND
I've Disdained Those Who 
Couldn't Conceal That They'd Been Bad
BUT
That Was Until The Day I Really Met King Jesus
AND
He Bade Me To Divest
AND
Take A Clean Bath!

I Had No Choice!
I Really Didn't
For 
I'd Broken Down
AND
Revealed All
AND
There Was Now No Place To 
Insert The Shame-faced Chagrined Laugh!

I Cried!
I Bowed!
I Prayed!
I Was No More Proud
For
The Underbelly Of The Slug Had Been Salted!

I Lifted Up My Ashamed Gaze!
I Saw My Master
Through The Teary Haze
AND
My Confession Led To
An Offer Of Eternal Days
By Walking Holy
Faithful
Trusting
Praising
Praying
AND
Leaning
On Him
Who Holds All My Days!

No More Hiding!

Confession and Repentance Have Collided
AND
On The Glory Road
This Repentant - Forgiven - Sinner 
Is Walking
AND
Residing!
