Wise Serpents, Gentle Doves

by jeffry baggett

Will we be ridiculed for calling on His name
Why not?, for two thousand years it has been the same
In this world we shall be mocked for our faith indeed
Yet don't forget it's the mockers heart that's in need
Surely the guilty always seeks another to blame

Be not dismayed by those who point fingers and laugh
For it's the devil's plan that we are spurred to wrath
Vain pride is a snare that causes us to stumble
Yet our lord instructed us to remain humble
Let's let the Light of Christ illuminate our path

For was not our lord before the wolves a lamb?
He endured by keeping eyes on the great 'I AM'
Rely upon His Word to save your soul intact
As always we are judged by the way we react
So to the mockers bestow God's love towards them

Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Jas 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Jas 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Jas 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
