Only One Life, Twill Soon Be Past – Poem by C.T Studd

Today is my birthday and so whenever this time of year comes around I try remind my self of what this poem encapsulates.

Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgement seat;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Just Quote’n – Expositor’s Bible Commentary

The below is in consideration of Proverbs 21:17

It is the desire of pleasure which is at the root of the mischief: “He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man.” Men are “lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” The appetites which are natural to us hold undisputed sway, they are fleshly; the great spiritual appetites, which are supernatural, are quite feeble and inoperative. Men ask for that which is pleasant, and even when they become religious it is only to obtain pleasure, a greater and a more lasting pleasure; thus there is an intemperance, which we call fanaticism, even in religious beliefs and in religious practices. But what men need is that the desire of God, for His own sake, should be so inflamed in them as to burn up all other desires. And this desire can only be created by His Holy Spirit. The competing and manifold desires of pleasure can only be mastered and expelled when that great, absorbing, and embracing desire of God has been securely settled in the human heart by the Holy Spirit. – Expositor’s Bible Commentary

Just Quote’n – C.J. Mahaney #2

What should consume our thoughts and affections is not resisting worldliness but the glory and grace of God revealed at the cross. We must take the sin of worldliness seriously, to be sure…But its eradication is not an end in itself. Resisting worldliness is absolutely vital but not ultimately most significant. Jesus Christ is most important. We must fight Worldliness because it dulls our affections for Christ and distracts our attention from Christ. Worldliness is so serious because Christ is so glorious.

-C.J Mahaney in the book “Worldliness”

I like the sound of Skillet, they might be a bit heavy for some people but I like them. This song acknowledges that humanity needs a hero. Christ being that hero.

I heard this song many many years ago and stumbled upon the lyrics again recently. Enjoy it.

Treasuring Him (DWYL Sermon Jam Video) – John Piper

We often get so wrapped up in ‘stuff’ we just need more things! The goal of our lives is not to get as much things as possible it is to live it in such a way as to bring God glory. Are you wasting your life chasing after more ‘stuff’? Here is how not to.
