If You Want To Be Like Jesus

Jesus said unto him, "Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy mind. This is
the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself." Matthew 22:37-39    


Brother, if you would be known
As a truly Godly man,
You must go tell your neighbor
Of God's salvation plan.

Sister, if you want to be
True and faithful to your Lord,
You must go feed His children,
And teach them of His word.

Just two commandments Jesus gave,
That sum up all the others:
Love God with all your heart and mind,
And also love your brothers.

Care for widows and orphans,
Heal the sick, and feed the poor,
Help those who are in prison;
Jesus said do these, and more!

Obeying God, the Father,
Jesus did as He was bid---
If we would be as Jesus,
We must do as Jesus did!
