WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? poem

WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?


The gospel ain’t a teddy bear
It’s wrath and love
It’s black sin and red love
It’s execution and life
It’s persecution and light
It’s retribution and right
It’s a crucifixion plan sacrifice
For all those who lack the might
To please the one true God who is without spot or blight
If not tonight - then when?
If you are not saved
Then you are not right with Him
And you are not right within without Him within


If you are not born again in the New Adam
Then you are not even His friend
You and God are enemies who are at enmity
You might be like:

“dang I ain’t know God had it in for me
due to my intimacy with infamy
I’ve ignored God because I’m just so into me
I’m like a whole selfish infantry
And the Trinity is set to put an end to me
Cause I ain’t wanna enter the
Rest of His death burial and resurrection
I’m a professor of "XXX" like a wheel chaired X-Men
I love my flesh which loves sex resulting in venereal infections”


Yes then, realize we’re all like UNLV -
Running with a race of rebels in an insurrection
And you betta bet that this upsets Him
But God got the antidote to your excess sin better than Excedrin
God’s medicine is exceeding your needing,
What it is: Christ’s bleeding
And not any of your deeding, not the deeds that you do
Or the deeds that you done did,
They just don’t do it and never could, kid



WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?

See, the gospel ain’t a birthday balloon or blue cotton candy in a bag
The gospel ain’t a get rich quick scheme or a get outta jail card
Not simply a cheap way to do free rehab
The gospel is the only cure for your disease
The only surgery for the cancer
The only answer on the test - no multiple choice
Hear the small still voice?
That’s the Spirit giving you the grace to have the faith
To believe in the gospel in the first place, ace
Don’t waste your life, please
And instead desire God by targeting joy
The gospel ain’t a free t-shirt or a slick marketing ploy
The gospel is for the dark and destroyed freaks and boys
Who have chased after free toys but see these decoys
Will never satisfy God’s demand for justice
But the gospel is the only true truth - God’s gift
... just trust Jesus


WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?


The gospel ain’t a teddy bear
It’s wrath and love
It’s black sin and red love
It’s execution and life
It’s persecution and light
It’s retribution and right
It’s a crucifixion plan sacrifice
For those who lack the might
To please the one true god who is without spot or blight
If not tonight - then when?
If you are not saved then you are not right with him
And you are not right within without him within


...THE GOSPEL
