You're Hired: Edify!

There’s a fairly common conversation
that most saved folk tend to have:
It surrounds what we can and can’t do in Christ
as we walk this righteous path.

How much does the Old Law matter
If now, the greatest commandment is love?
Are smoking and drinking seen as sins?
Is God frowning down from above?

And what about the sins that weigh us down
as we all try to run this race;
If we do things that we shouldn’t do anymore
Are we frustrating His Grace?

In this, I think it’s a matter of focus
and it helps things not seem so odd
Because even though we’ve been saved by Grace,
We’re also hired to do a job.

We’ve been commissioned to build things up;
to promote God’s love and Glory.
By combination of our practice and preaching,
testifying what we’ve learned in His story.

But because we’re aware of the benefit perks,
most embrace their job in this way;
They want to enjoy the retirement plan,
so they start and retire the same day.

They figure; God really doesn’t fire anyone.
So if I’m in, then I’m in…what’s the riff?
But being “in” means you’re serious about doing His will,
So in the end, it’s a really BIG IF!

Only God can judge me… I’m free indeed!
Be careful if that’s all you see.
In all things we’re supposed to edify,
Which seeks to exalt Christ as King!

Here’s The Word;

1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

2 Corinthians 12:19 Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Most Christians know what the word servant means
And our basic understandings are good.
But we get so caught up in CAN and CAN’T
We often don’t consider if we “SHOULD”.

Things that we say or stuff we don’t say.
The evidences of things we desire,
should center on edification to The Glory of GOD
For this is the reason you’re hired.

In Him,
