We have a solid foundation,
Because the words have been engraved;
Having been offered salvation,
Knowing to whom you are enslaved.
The Lord knows who belongs to Him,
To worship Him stop doing wrong;
If not then chances are real slim,
Your agonized pain will prolong.
Stay away from the lusts which tempt,
Pursue what the Lord approves of;
No temptation will be exempt,
Rather live in faith, peace, and love.
Some things made of silver and gold,
Others are made of wood and clay;
Remember do as you were told,
For you need to trust and obey.
Pursue into faith, love and peace,
Worship the Lord in a pure heart;
Then your hostilities will cease,
While His Word you do impart.
As you serve God do not argue,
For arguments can become hot;
And Satan is making a stew,
When he will put you in the pot.
So always be gentle and kind,
As you are willing to suffer;
Teach with trying to ease their mind,
And never to be a bluffer.
For what you teach are not your views,
And not a place to be uncouth;
For you are preaching the God News,
And the Word of God is the truth.
So it depends on who you trust,
For Satan will tempt with a dare;
Or setting a trap for your lust,
That is catching you in a snare.
