What Jesus Asks of Us...

What Jesus Asks Of Us…


“Love your God with your

heart, soul and mind.”

The is the first great

 commandment you’ll find.


“Love your neighbor as yourself,”

 is number two...

These commands are what

Jesus asks of me and you.


The law, the prophets hang

 on these commands.

God loves you!  He doesn’t

 Make “impossible” demands.


His death on the cross and

the life he gave…

He wants our love for him

 in how we behave.


He created us to have a

  relationship with him.

That we may know what

 It means to be “born again.”


Reading his word will give us

 wisdom in what is asked.

This will give us a desire to

obey him that will last.


Let’s wholeheartedly serve him now!

Our lives…  He will restore.

Living for Jesus…  Who could ask

 for anything more?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
