NOT OF THIS WORLD


I grew tired of living my life inconsistently,
For so long my heart had been wondering endlessly,
On the pleasures of this world,
even though none gave any satisfaction to my soul.
Salvation : Devotional Cross as Symbol of Christian Faith on Hill Stock Photo 
Then I remembered a man
A man who promised me something,
 I could never thought possible
He promised me eternal love and eternal life
If only I was to heed his voice
And open the door when he knocked
A man who loved me so much
That he left his royal throne in heaven
And took a human form 
Just so that he could save me from a life of agony in hell
He showed me that I too can follow his footsteps
If only I picked my cross and follow him
Salvation : The creation is saved by the Lord Jesus Christ
He promised that no height or depth
Or anything else in this creation
Will ever take his love away from me
And so today I fix my eye not to what is seen
But to what is unseen
For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal
And so I am a new creation
The old has gone and the new has come
And so when the grass withers and the flower fades
The word of the lord will live forever
And so will I, if only I follow his world
