Commission


Faithfulness is the gift He gave
Then He sent His Son to save
Only to see Him beaten and killed
Scripture had to be fulfilled

We now live with His saving grace
With access to His holy face
But how many of us really care?
How many are not even aware?

So many lost souls wander the town
Never knowing about life’s crown
And there are those who once knew of Him
But their outlook now is very grim

We must draw them back towards home
Help them to no longer roam
Teach them of the truth of God
Tearing down the false facade

Jesus told us to lead them straight
Save them from a hellish fate
Why do so many ignore this command?
Let’s be different, make the Kingdom grand

Holli’s Notes:
I have been hearing a lot lately about how many people are falling away from God. It’s sad to me, given the wonderful things I have discovered through the Lord in the past year or so. So I wanted to do my part in rallying the Kingdom to start going out and bringing people back to God.
