(By Jan Phillips )
Lots of people say they are Christians
They don’t act like one
They do so many things each day
That make them seem the other way.
What makes a Christian look like one
Is the way they choose to live
They can share their real blessings
Not just the window dressings.
Being a Christian means you are willing to sacrifice
Just look at Jesus, He gave up His life
It also means you get blessings beyond what you expect
Only if you give your life to Jesus can you collect.
People give us Christians black eyes every day
That’s because we let them by the things we do and say
No amount of makeup can cover the black eye you got that way
Just give your life to God through Jesus and he will take it away.
Ask forgiveness for your sins and mean it in your heart
That my friend is just the very start
Then you must live for God in every other way
No matter what your friends and foes ever have to say.
Sinning you are gonna do as we all have done
Nobody is perfect, there was only the ONE
He will be back to claim you, He has said He would
Just keep asking forgiveness as you know you should.
Don’t worry about the black eye
You may once have had
The grace of God took it away
So makeup is not required to cover it today.
