There are many of us,
claiming to worship Jesus,
but He isn’t the focus,
or the impetus;
the very motive
that is shown in how we live!
No… some are merely,
Christians, in name only;
they have no real love of the Trinity.
We view the concept of loving God very differently!
We think it’s giving Him praise and lovely compliments;
but John 14 says loving Him is obeying His commandments!
We should focus on doing the latter,
and THEN do the former…
in other words, first obey!
Then when you decide to say
those things to exhalt His name,
He’ll be pleased and you won’t experience shame!
Now, let’s move away from this example,
and get back to the point before I start to ramble.
Some of us don’t really love God…
even though it sounds really odd,
what I say is, unfortunately, true.
In case you don’t see where I’m going, let me show you.
We come together in a building, whose purpose…
is to gather those who love Jesus.
Instead of being guilty of fixating,
on the only, actual, divine being,
too many are guilty of thinking,
that counts as sinning
against Zion’s King.
Allow me to share my enlightenment;
some have elevated their entitlement,
as they made a god from the concept of entertainment!
Hedonism is what they glorify,
for it they cheat, steal, lust, and lie.
It is sin, it offers death, and for it they foolishly die.
And the rhetorical question that needs asking is, “Why”?
The answer is, instead of loving,
the focus is on sinning,
also known as rebelling
against God, the comos’ King,
because the desires of their own imagining,
are those that they are following.
Keep in mind what love does!
It seeks to benefit others because,
that is how love always was!
It was never defined as selfish,
rude, immature, or childish.
The bible clearly dictates,
that these kinds of traits
are what makes us inmates;
and His love altered our fallen states!
Now, where am I going with this?
Right back to the poem’s premise!
Love deals with giving;
You often go to God, but that’s to get something,
and getting does not equal giving.
So if all you do to God is taking,
I just don’t know how to call that loving.
