‘Disposable assets
belonging to God.’
If these words offend you
perhaps you’re not called?
What was it that saved you
if it was not God?
And what makes you righteous
if not Jesus’ blood?

Some made a profession
when they were quite young
to please Christian parents
who led them along.
Or others when older
in some church crusade,
professed to be Christians
but don’t know the Lord.

Rebirth is amazing
as God takes control,
our old selfish nature
comes under His rule.
The life of a Christian
as martyrs wi ll know,
is spiritual blessing –
Not some outward show.

‘Disposable assets
belonging to God.’
If these words offend you
perhaps you’re not called?
What was it that saved you
if it was not God?
And what makes you righteous
if not Jesus’ blood?

‘To the angel of the church in Smyrna write…
I know your afflictions and your poverty – yet you are rich!
…Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer.
I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you,
and you will suffer persecution for ten days.
Be faithful, even to the point of death,
and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.’
[Revelation 2:8-10]
