DON'T EVER SAY ''NO'' TO JESUS


GOD USES MANY DIFFERENT WAYS
TO TELL US WHAT TO DO,
FOR WE ARE THE ONE'S HE USES
TO CARRY HIS MESSAGE THROUGH.

YOU MAY NOT WANT TO GET INVOLVED.
YOU MAY SAY "I WON'T GO,
I'M HAPPY JUST TO SIT BACK,
AND WATCH GOD RUN THE SHOW".

WHEN GOD DECIDES TO USE YOU
TO CARRY ON HIS TASK,
YOU HAD BETTER HEED HIS CALLING,
AND THEN HIS GUIDANCE ASK.

DON'T EVER SAY "NO" TO JESUS.
I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE TRUE.
FOR GOD WILL USE MANY OTHERS
TO RECEIVE SUBMISSION FROM YOU.

HIS PERSUASION MAY BE SO GENTLE,
IN A QUIET SORT OF WAY,
OR IT MAY BE STRONG AND SUDDEN
AND FOR MERCY YOU WILL PRAY.

IT IS HARD TO SAY "I WILL GO, LORD",
AND TO MEAN IT FROM THE HEART.
YES, GOD WILL BE THERE TO LEAD YOU,
BUT YOU MUST MAKE THE START.
