Backslidden

 
 

Backslidden
By Sylvia E Blakely
~

Some have wandered far away
From Jesus Christ their Lord
Once they lived by faith in Him
Abiding by God’s word.
It can be a gradual thing
We may not see the harm
Till we’re caught up in the world
And can’t tell right from wrong.

Satan watches Jesus’ sheep
To see if one will stray
Looking for the vulnerable
That he can make his prey.
Jesus knows our every move
And lessons we must learn
Even though we wander off
He calls us back again.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
[1 John 1:9]
