Guidelines for Serving Christ

To be a good servant of Christ,
Something has to be sacrificed;
For the things you have on this earth,
Up in Heaven will have no worth.

Then you are nourished by the Word,
In the Christian faith you have heard;
All the things that you have been taught,
Then will be shown which you have sought.

Do not have anything to do
With Godless tales told unto you;
They only bring gossipy strife,
So train yourself in a godly life.

Exercise keeps the body fit,
And helps your health a little bit;
But godly living shows the way,
How for you not to go astray.

Godly living assures you hope,
In an effort to help you cope,
Of life now and the world to come,
To be cheerful instead of glum.

We work hard and struggle to live,
And thank God that He does forgive;
So we place confidence in God,
Even though that we may be flawed.

For to this we labor and strive,
To make ends meet and stay alive;
Teaching of Christ who we believe,
Brings salvation what we receive.
