Jesus, The One True Vine

The world is searching for the truth,
but they’re being thrown for a loop.

Not knowing You as their Savior,
they’ve had their share of unfair favor.

True favor, only Jesus can give,
when listening to Him, we can live!

There are so many false truths out there,
that causes so much hatred and despair.

People are desperate for Your Truth today,
but deceptions have twisted it the wrong way.

Such, as it is, the world has created their “truths,”
causing the innocent to become confused.

Once confusion came on the scene,
the Truth was forgotten and not seen.

Fabricated lies began to infiltrate all in its way,
clouding the minds of those that could be swayed.

Oh, how we need the Truth of God’s Word today,
to sweep this country, breaking the chains of sin away.

If the truth were told about God’s Word,
the enemy would be quickly deterred!

Saints, fill your entire being with God’s ways,
and you will see the Truth overcoming today!

The enemy is always at war with our souls,
trying to create plans that will unfold.

We need to stay rooted in the Truth of God’s Word,
with our eyes fixed on Jesus, our Shield and Sword!

There are so many false truths out there to count,
that it sways those who have too many doubts.

Doubts about this, that, and the other,
creating offenses towards our sisters and brothers.

Christ will not work in a church without truths.
They would not hear Him speaking and would stay aloof.

Some churches that are in this world today,
are too easily convinced that they teach the way!

Once tried and tested and brought through the fire,
all the impurities are swept away in the mire.

Those rooted in Jesus, the One True Vine,
will grow closer to Him through the trials, each time! 

Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit

  1. Amen, Linda, you can say that again!
    When we look at the minds of men….
    By God’s truth we are set free and a new life we begin,
    Because God’s truth is desired, we will be rewarded in the end,

    But the rest of mankind will be in line,
    On the broad road at the end of time

    And be expelled for eternity in a place of torment
    Because they have broken God’s commandments,

    And though the Savior has offered forgiveness through His sacrifice,
    They still choose to live out their lives clinging to their own beliefs and devices.

  2. Dear Linda,

    Thank you once again for your loving words concerning the LORD.
    Your gift and the way you glorify Him through your writing is so evident in every word!
