What Would Jesus Say

What Would Jesus Say

I wonder what Jesus would say
if He physically visited churches today!
Would He see a circus, or a one man show,
or hear diluted sermons wherever He'd go?
Would the truth be preached without apology
or would appeasing men be what He'd see?

Would His gospel be preached as it was meant,
with a strong emphasis on men to repent?
Would Jesus see men surrender their will,
or following after the latest thrill?
Would He see church funds properly used,
or the sheep being fleeced and abused?

What will we hear Jesus say
as we face Him on judgment day?
"Good and faithful one,
welcome, a job well done!"
or, "I never knew you, depart,
you served Me not with your heart,
unauthorized to do what you did,
things My word clearly forbid."
Help us Lord to PLEASE only You,
as the body of Christ is expected to.

Matt.7:21-23, Luke 6:46, 13:27
"Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?"  And I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me you who practice lawlessness."
