Sacred by BD

It seems those days are nearly over
empty seats in every church
while others blame others for the loss
they continue on their spiritual search

I walked around a city park one day
and noticed 7 church steeples around
and asked myself, “what happened”?
I used to hear the bells sound

Calling families and folks to worship
calling all sinners Home
to repent, and be free from their shackles of pain
their sins, they could now atone

Worship and praise has changed, my friends
I see it all, first hand
I need no longer wonder why, right now
or draw a symbol in the sand

Deeper relationships are needed
to hold fast the community of Christ’s vision
we clutter our lives with material things
technology and television

Churches may be empty because
they may be empty in a deeper place
relationships and diving deeper into the Book
may present a better case

Ask someone today to describe “salvation”
or the “three” that hung on a cross
name the town where the crucifixion took place
where we suffered our Savior’s loss

Many will go to the grave not knowing
not caring to understand why
to understand why we really are “free”
nothing to burden and nothing to tie

They may, someday, get to the Heavenly gate
whilst on bending knee
to find they’ve been turned away
asking, “you don’t recognize me”?

A sovereign and loving God
always at your door knocking
but to open it from the inside, only
why are your actions balking

It’s never to late to change your way
to find your way back home
whether it’s done with your family together
or even you, alone

“I am the way, the truth and the life
no one comes to the Father except through Me”
one simple statement of value
one simple passive decree

As you see the world has falling
to sin, to war and hatred
gone are the Palaces of Peace
gone is the space of Sacred
