There are many who claim Christianity

Every Sunday… church they will attend

The body gives a Christian performance

Yet the heart has the need to make amends

A Christian heart… should bear witness to the soul

Should be filled with compassion and love

Should be guided by God’s holy word

Should be a blessing sent from above

A Christian heart… should never be prideful

Should not seek to condemn everyone else

Should not gossip; speak unkindly of others

Should not need to stroke the ego of oneself

A Christian heart…must be true in its intention

Scripture and duty do not make a heart “true”

One must listen to the hearts gentle whisper

Asking oneself; “What would Jesus do?”

Beware of “practicing” Christianity

Practicing… but not letting God take hold

Not allowing the Christian heart to prosper

Thus not allowing… God’s grace to unfold
