Pure Religion

 

Pure Religion
By Marie C Neubauer
~

Led of His Spirit,
In Jesus we trust,
Denying ungodliness
And worldly lusts…
Monitoring our hearts
And words we speak,
This is pure religion
Our Lord does seek!

Mindful of the poor,
And hungry we feed,
Visiting the orphans
And widows in need…
Keeping our motives
Honest and right,
This is pure religion
Undefiled in God’s sight!’

Pure religion is not
Just creeds we attest,
A church tradition
Some spiritual quest…
It is following Jesus
In obedience each day,
Unspotted from the world
And every evil way!

~

‘Pure religion and undefiled before God, and the Father is this,
to visit the fatherless and orphans in their affliction,
and keep himself unspotted from the world.’
[James 1:27]
