Accept Free Salvation ... And Grow Good Fruit!




We Do Not Earn Salvation
By Obedience
For
Salvation Is The Free Gift Of God!
Faith Reaches For
AND
Takes
A From-Death-Unto-Eternal-Life-Hold 
On Salvation
AND
Obedience Is The Fruit Of Our Faith
In Him 
Who Will Our Faithfulness Reward!

Obedience Is 
The Fruit Of Faith
Which Is A Fruit Of The Holy Spirit
And That Makes Obedience
A Good Fruit
Twice Sweet!
AND
This Fruit Is Such
That It Is Filling With Satisfactions
Known
AND
To Be Known
When We See Our Blessed King
AND
Behold Him
On His Eternal And Glorious Throne!

A Life Of Obedience
AND
Unswerving Faith
Is
To The Sinner
A Strong Reproof
A Visible Felt Slap In The Face
An Indictment
An Affront
A Stark Challenge
To Be Severely Met
For
The Life Of Obedience
Causes The One Disobedient
Unfaithful To Truth And Right
To Be Miserable
AND
To Constantly Angrily Fret!

Remember Cain
Of Grossly Disobedient Frame
Who Hated Abel's Obedience
AND
Slew Him As Proof
Of His Stand
Against The Maker's Guidance
Showing Plain Also
His Stand Against Righteousness
AND
Killing The Innocent
So That The Guilty Raging Spirit
Could At Last
From Visible Reproof Rest
Though The Earth Grossly
With Innocent Blood
Be Indelibly Stained!

Remember
The Second Adam
Jesus Christ
The Second Abel
Whose Blood Gave Better Testimony
For It Cleans The Known Guilty Of Sin!

Abel
The Type Innocent
The Sacrificial Lamb
His Blood The Guilty Accused
BUT
Jesus Christ
The True Innocent
The True Sacrificial Lamb
- By Our Acting In His Faith Unto Obedience -
- By Accepting His Merits -
Will The Confessed
Repentant Sinner's
Reproof Remove!

One Step
Is All It Takes
To Run Right
Or
Stand Wrong!

One Step
Is All It Takes
To Earn
The Judge's Frown!

One Step
Is All It Takes
To Claim
The Eternal King's Rewarding
AND
One Step
Is All It Takes
To Determine
One's Eternal Fate!

Act ONE
The Devil Acts!
We React!
The Consequence Is Ours!

Act TWO
Our Lust For Reaction
Gains Traction
AND
Consequences Are Damned!
We Are No More On The Fence
AND
Hope For Good
Unto To Willing Evil
Is Assuredly Gone!

Practice Is All It Takes
So ... Take Faith!
Accept ... Free Salvation!
Grow ... Willing Obedience!
AND
The Fruit
Of
The Tree Of Life
Your Mouth Will Surely Taste!


To Get A Good Crop
We Must Have Good Ground!

The Seed Of The Holy Spirit

With What
Are YOU
Tilling
And
Manuring Your Mind?!
