Both Angel And Crook

“Believe and be saved,” the minister said;
“Believe and be saved, and rise from the dead!
Through grace ye are saved from sin and from Hell,
So simply BELIEVE and all will be well!”

The preacher continued, then read from the book
How all can reach Heaven, both angel and crook.
When all had been said and church had recessed,
With money collected and everyone blessed;

The preacher retired to his spacious new home
In his humble Mercedes with everything chrome.
He sat in his study, his thoughts running deep;
He dozed for a moment, then died in his sleep.

He ran to Saint Peter and, wearing a grin;
“I believe in the Savior, so please let me in!”
“Oh no! Not another!” said Pete with a sigh,
“Satan’s sure working, the toll’s running high!”

The preacher looked puzzled, then saw in a flash
The Plan of Salvation, beginning to last.
Believing is nothing if nothing is done;
In getting to Heaven you follow the Son.

To follow a leader you do what is said;
Faith without works is nothing but dead.
Satan knows Jesus, believes in Him too;
So what is the difference ‘tween Satan and you?

Believe in the Savior, but always recall,
Belief is required but it sure isn’t all!
