Running Straight

Things I once thought valuable,
Now considered worthless for Christ;
Many of them were immoral,
And so they must be sacrificed.

But it is much further than that,
Everything else is worthless;
For it is best, knowing the fact,
That Lord Jesus Christ is priceless.

He is why it is worth nothing,
Throwing it away so much gain,
Only to the cross will I cling,
The throne in my heart He shall reign.

With a relationship with Him,
I will never be feeling sad;
Because nothing ever looks grim;
Being in Him I shall feel glad.

The Holy Spirit cleansed my flaws,
Not just for what I sacrificed;
And not just obeying His laws,
Rather because my faith in Christ.

The approval from God is based,
On faith knowing Jesus is Lord;
Power of faith that has embraced,
And that never has been ignored.

Faith in knowing He will be back,
As He will run straight toward the goal;
Giving us hope for what we lack,
That Jesus returns for my soul.
