A Turned-On Believer

Be a “Turned-On Believer”
Then people might ask,
“What is that scent you are wearing?”
Being “Tuned in” to Jesus
Means people will see
Just what it means to be Christian.

Whether “tuned in” or “turned on”
Others may join you
When they see how much you have changed.
When you’re “easy” on others,
You’re acting like Christ.
How has God’s love seemed to change you?

When your love is apparent
You show you’re chosen
For purpose of service to all.

Armor of God

Part of God’s armor is the sword of the Spirit.
Why leave it at home, to rust in a corner?
Why hold a short dagger (few verses remembered),
When God offers us the sword of His Word,
Constructed to take all evil away?

When willingly taking all help you’re offered,
Each weapon God issued to help you succeed,
Then, when it’s all over, except for the shouting,
You’ll still be standing, praising the Father
For this sword, His Word, protecting from harm.

                              Ephesians 6:10-20
