Why do I cling to this world and its malice? Why would I not take up the cross and drink from Lords chalice? Why would my flesh glory in earthly pleasure? when I have been called to glory in heavens treasure. Why would my emotion take charge over me? Why would I not walk in the confidence of being set free? Why would I lust and spend time in ungodly leisure? when I have been called to walk each moment with heavens treasure. Why would I work and slog to earn that money? Why would I forget I am on my way to the land of milk and honey? Why would I get caught up in the rat race and pressure? when I have been called to do the work ofheavenstreasure. I wonder; Have I truly understood the value of this precious treasure, or known the glorious riches & rewards of heaven's pleasure. Have I truly loved Him above all earthly desires that fade away or known what took Him to bridge the chasm & make The Way. Have I set my heart & hope on things that are above, or known that the most excellent way is just to love. Have I really repented of sin and been born again, or known it is in Him that we have to abide & remain. Author Unknown 8. The Litmus Test Two little lines I heard one day, Traveling along life's busy way; Bringing conviction to my heart, And from my mind would not depart; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Only one life, yes only one, Soon will its fleeting hours be done; Then, in 'that day' my Lord to meet, And stand before His Judgment seat; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Only one life, the still small voice, Gently pleads for a better choice Bidding me selfish aims to leave, And to God's holy will to cleave; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Only one life, a few brief years, Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears; Each with its clays I must fulfill, living for self or in His will; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. When this bright world would tempt me sore, When Satan would a victory score; When self would seek to have its way, Then help me Lord with joy to say; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Give me Father, a purpose deep, In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep; Faithful and true what e'er the strife, Pleasing Thee in my daily life; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Oh let my love with fervor burn, And from the world now let me turn; Living for Thee, and Thee alone, Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne; Only one life, twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. Only one life, yes only one, Now let me say, "Thy will be done"; And when at last I'll hear the call, I know I'll say twas worth it all"; Only one life, 'twill soon be past, Only what's done for Christ will last. -CT StuddII Chro 16:9 9.
