18 Inches

He says he believes
Jesus Christ is Lord
Son of God, Son of man
Yet that belief hasn’t traveled
Or made its way
18 inches into his heart
There is no desire to know God more
No hunger read His word
Or commune with God through prayer
Obedience is lacking
Holiness is not increasing
The Holy Spirit doesn’t reside within
He continues on in his sin, just like before
No conscience to bother him
Or bring about repentance
He says believes Christ is Lord
His belief hasn’t yet traveled
18 inches into his heart

But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.  You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!   But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? – James 2:18-20
