Friendship With the World

 
Life and its choices
and many loud voices
Demand that attention of yours.
So easy to listen
and miss your great mission
In life and go through the wrong doors.

You don’t want to look odd
when following God,
What would your friends think about you?
You want to serve Christ
but so highly is priced,
Giving up the old and living new.


Just play the game
and look just the same,
Perhaps you can live as you choose.
The things that you wear
will plainly declare
To others you’ve nothing to lose.

The things that you say
in that same worldly way
As the sinners you’re seeking to win;
The Spirit is grieved
and you are deceived
If you think you are going to win.

Go back to the start
and look in your heart,
And honestly see what’s inside.
And make yourself small
‘cause God knows it all.
From His all seeing eye you can’t hide.

It will cause you distress
when you try to impress
The worldlings who’ve put God away.
The world - or God’s Son ...
Make your choice, so which one
Will you have as your friend from this day?

Whatever you want,
to serve God you can’t
And the world with its pleasures and sin.
If you make it your friend
you will loose in the end,
‘Cause you can’t have the world and have Him.

AleB

"Know ye not
that the friendship of the world

is enmity with God?
Whosoever therefore
will be a friend of the world

is the enemy of God."
James 4: 4
