Just to take one step towards YOU, LORD
It takes just one step
To forget self
AND consider another!
Just one step
To reach further,
To feel and console somebody in adversity;
LORD, it is taking just one step YOUR WAY!
It is just one step
To forgive the hurt,
For wrongs done;
Just one step in fellowship
With YOU, our Messiah!
It is just taking one step towards
Loving YOU, through loving others!
Just one step in humility,
To acknowledge our weaknesses,
And repent our sinfulness!
Brings a deeper understanding of CALVARY;
Of a Righteous GODíS loving compassion,
Sending HIS HOLY SON, JESUS CHRIST, to die for our sins,
Bringing about reconciliation!
Yet, we need YOUR help, LORD
In every step forward we make,
We need wisdom, love and strength,
For each new step we take.
It is alien to our nature, LORD
To be self-giving
Something in return!
The other cheek turning
Instead of retaliating!
Yet this conduct is what we should be aspiring to
As Christians, GODíS will following.
Let us, with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT,
Take that vital step
To renew our faith,
To take that one step
To do what HE saith,
Take up the cross and follow HIM!
Increased faith leads to holiness,
Be holy as your Father in Heaven is holy,
Our Lord admonishes!
Pushing through the darkness, following Christís light,
Every Christian has to depend on Godís omnipotent might,
To glimpse a vision of eternity!
