How Do I Remain Faithful?
In a darkened world that is rapidly racing toward the end,
I see many Christians compromising like it’s the latest trend;
I know for God’s truth, I must earnestly contend,
But, my dear friend, how do I remain faithful?
As the signs become clearer for God’s children to see,
Lukewarm believers rush madly towards apostasy,
And this world beckons so alluringly to you and to me –
One question remains, how do I remain faithful?
Soon we’ll have a one-world economy, a one-world religion;
Tolerance is the byword – they say it’s their decision;
As worldly Christians quickly lose all conviction,
Tell me again, how do I remain faithful?
The world follows doctrines of devils, deception’s so strong;
Some believers are so blind, they say that nothing’s wrong,
But God’s Word rings out deeply like a resounding gong,
And I wonder, how do I remain faithful?
Inside, I have no intention of walking away –
But how come the battle seems so strong today?
This world is calling me – I must look away,
And find everything I need in Him.
“Come out of their midst, My people, and live righteously,
I, your God, have chosen you from all eternity;
Keep My Word, My children, awaken and be free;
Blessed are those faithful servants I find waiting for Me.”
Only Jesus’ blood can rescue from the bondage of sin;
Only God’s power can stop us from giving in;
Only His Spirit can strengthen and purify within;
By His compelling love, I can remain faithful.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 7:1 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Revelation 18:4-5 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
