The Revealing Fruit Of Christ

My soul longs to hear You Lord,
with a prayerful heart I implore.

My heart is broken as I bow before You,
for a contrite spirit You will not refuse.

You stand by every word that You’ve spoken,
imparting wisdom with each Holy Token.

All You ask us to do is be still and listen,
in the stillness while the dew glistens.

Some believers have strayed away from the truth,
causing the unbelievers to think something is aloof.

Body of Christ, where have we gone wrong?
So many of us have blended in with the throng.

Jesus said, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
So, where in the ministry of the church is there proof?

The lack of adhering to the principles in God’s Word,
should speak loudly enough to clearly be heard.

Yet some leaders are seeing only God’s love,
quickly forgetting He brings justice from above.

Placing our trust in anything but God, our Father,
we’ve become like the animals who are slaughtered.

Some churches lack the leadership called by God,
meant to shepherd them through the worldly throng.

Giving us a free will was just one of God’s gifts,
but some of God’s church, to Him they resist.

Resisting the Holy Spirit in all that He does,
was not intended to question God’s love.

Too many believers have been deceived by so many,
because of the Truth that’s been twisted by the enemy.

Oh, that the church would listen to Your heart,
for You desire Your wisdom, to impart.

Matthew 7: 19-20 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
