Walk circumspect as a child of the Light.
Shun fascination with the things of the night.
Celebration of dark ugly wickedness, grotesque evil,
Serves only to give more power to the devil.
Monsters, witches, faces of skeletal death
Unholy shedding of blood, grinning Zombie mirth,
Makes for goosebumps and short-lived shocking thrills
That vanquish joy, peace and love in sinister chills.
No true child of God, who loves Jesus as Lord,
Can rightly entertain such evil or vampires adore.
This year, if you have not already, take a stand. Be brave. Be Holy.
Redeem the day and with your choice; give God glory.
Choose to step out of cultural tradition and pressure.
Share and rejoice over God’s goodness full measure.
Replace carnivals and costumed death-based parties
With rejoicing over His abundant Life, Grace and Mercies.
Tell others that you are one who celebrates Life
And you’ve chosen a life-giving walk over death and strife.
Spread the news of God’s refreshing and healing love.
Cast aside all semblance of evil and walk fully in the Son.
God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
There is no reward ever found in the wages of sin.
Choosing life over death and turning away from evil
Is a sign that that you’re ready to walk in REVIVAL!
