It's Not Easy

By Calvin Hart

It's not easy, being a Christian,
In a world so full of sin,
When lust and greed and hatefulness,
Are worse than they've ever been.

It's not easy being a child of God,
In a world where He is scorned.
Where the Bible is considered fiction,
And children are killed before they are born.

It's not easy to walk the Christian way,
And turn the other cheek,
It's not easy to stand and be laughed at,
While remaining quiet, docile, and meek.

It's not easy to forgive someone,
For injures done to you.
To keep the bitterness at bay,
And remain a Christian true.

It's not easy to keep your faith intact,
When troubles plague your soul.
But we must keep our eyes on God,
When heartaches take their toll.

It's not easy to hold Christian love in your heart,
For each person that you see.
But remember that Jesus died on the cross,
Because He loved both you and me.

No, it's not easy being a Christian,
In a world where we're tumbled and tossed.
But at the end of the day, when Christ takes us away,
The rewards will far outweigh the cost.
