To Believe Is Essential



To Believe Is Essential
Author: Mark V. Markov

Some books out there
Have a hidden message
Of living your life in disobedience
To God's instruction
In a hidden creative way
It's hidden in their words
As some spiritually sugar coat that message

Yet it is not spiritually healthy
To have that sugar coated diet
All of your life.
Disobedience to God
Destroys you
When it comes to eternity

James writes
You believe that there is a God
The demons believe also
And tremble
But they continue to live
In disobedience to God

To believe is essential
Yet we also need
To live in obedience
To God's instruction

There is a need to have
A healthy spiritual diet
By trusting Jesus Christ's instruction
In the Holy Scriptures
And applying His instruction
To one's life

Obedience to God
Is very necessary
As a result
It produces righteousness
Righteousness
Is pleasing to God
Since it is a result of doing
What He instructed.

To believe is essential
Yet we also need
To live in obedience
To God's instruction

There is a need to have
A healthy spiritual diet
By trusting Jesus Christ's instruction
In the Holy Scriptures
And applying His instruction
To one's life

Obedience to God
Is very necessary
As a result
It produces righteousness
And righteousness
Is pleasing to God
Since it is a result of doing
What He instructed...
