Your Own Version of the Gospel

You are daily writing your own gospel.
This is the gospel according to you.
A chapter is written every single day,
By the works and deeds that you do.
You cannot give counsel to others
If not living the gospel so others see Christ
With every word that you say and pray.

People read what you write in your gospel,
Whether it be faithless or true, they can tell.
Soon your life tells its own version of the Bible.
And like God they will see the genuine you.
You cannot change what God says to suit you.
God’s word is powerful when applied to your life.
But do not deviate from this daily guide from God.

Its instruction is as relevant now as ever before.
Wise is he who memorizes God’s instruction,
Or carries a copy of God’s word close by his side.
For God says we should write it on our hearts.
Your daily walk is really  God’s revealing talk.
To win others to Christ, it is Him they should see.
When you die to self, the more alive in Him you’ll be..

Isaiah 55:10 & 11 ~ “The rain and the snow comes down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow ,producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”

Genesis 4:7 ~ “You will be accepted if you do what is right, but if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”

Why I Need My Bible

I delve into its pages and I find power for the ordering of my life.
I search out subjects which bring reassurance that I am walking aright.
It offers me an escape from the perils which threaten our modern lives.
Within its pages I find secrets by which I walk in the light; it gives me hope.
It tells me over and over, in all chapters, how precious we are to God.
It shows us the way we can reach out and teach world brotherhood to all.
It tells me wither I am bound God walks with me at all times every day.
What assurance that gives me, it induces me to bend my knees and pray.
But I cannot live on “If Only’s” I must dry my tears and travel onwards.

Without my Bible I would not have a road map of how I am to live.
I cannot argue God’s word because over and over I have found it true.
Daily life is much easier when I read God’s word before I begin my day.
Why did I not start this practice sooner, why did I not learn how to pray.
Walking daily in God’s Spirit is the natural, much easier Godly way.
Oh Lord, why did I waste years rushing to and fro’ wasting my time,
When submitting my all to you would have been to You a Godly sign,
That I had begun to give to You my all, submitting everything to Thee.

You could have molded me sooner into the woman You wanted me to be.
