Loving God More
© 2016 Tom D Blakely
In our struggle with sin
We must never give in
But to fight it as God taught us to.
Let us fight the good fight
Let us do what is right
God is watching everything we do.
If we live just for self
We are drifting off course
We need Jesus to pilot us through.
Let not pride override
Or our feelings decide
Ask the Lord for help in all we do.
May we all understand
This essential command
That we love God and not love the world.
All our lusts and our cares
All our sins and our fears
Come from loving this world more than God.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world.
If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.”
[1 John 2:15]
