Really Living Dead!






I Stand Before You 
As
A Dead Person!
Not Any Old Pedestrian Dead
BUT 
A Person - According To The Bible
Who Is 
By Choice
Dead 
To The Call Of This World
Where All Sinful Lusts Are 
With Pious Devotion
Fed!

I've Tasted Of 
The World's Sweet Meats
Which Gregariously Pulled Me
Away From God 
AND WHICH
Without Fail
Left In My Mouth
A Bitter After-Taste
AND
A Sour Stomach 
On Riotous Repeat!

From The Reading Of The Holy Scriptures
I Know That
- If Left Unrepented
AND
Unconfessed -
All Known Sin
Is Going To Rear Up
In Accusation
Against Me When 
The Great Judge Of The Earth 
We Meet!

Only Problem, Though
When We Finally Face 
The Judgement Bar 
Of 
Jesus Christ The Righteous
It Will Be Too Late
To Confess Our Sins
OR 
"Try" To Make A Passing Excuse
AND
For This Very Reason
I Choose NOW
To Be Dead To The World
NOW
AND
To Be Alive In Jesus Christ
So That In That Great Day
I Will Not Be Among The Rejected
Who
- In Fact -
Are Accounted To The Kingdom
As Total Cast Outs!
The Ejected!

I Implore You, Therefore, Brethren ...

Let Us Live 
In The World
BUT
Not Be 
A Part Of It!

Let Us Be The Salt That Flavors
That Points The Taste-buds Of Others
 To Jesus Christ!

Let Us, Therefore
Lift Up The Savior
So That His Mercy And Grace
Will Enlarge Us
As We - By Right Living -
Set Stones In The Path Called 
The Holy Way
AND
Then Lift Us Up To Glory On
That Great And Glorious Day!


Are YOU 
Really 
Truly 
As A Born-Again 
United-With-Christ Christian
Living ... DEAD
To This World?!
