Many Churches Are in BAD Shape!

Many Churches Are In Bad Shape!!!


Is it any surprise that so many

 churches are in a mess?

When many indulge in

 “the sins of the flesh.”


What once was considered sacred and dear…

Is slowly, but surely, beginning to disappear.


Too many are walking…

as if they’re “totally blind “

Feasting in “shameful acts”

 of just about every kind.


I often wonder; “what’s going on in people’s heads?”

As they so often defile their marriage beds…


As God looks down to earth…

 What does he see?

So many of his children…  Sinning blatantly…


Where is the call for repentance?

 And God’s awesome holy power?

What if Christ came today?  It could be this hour!


How many in church are

 ready to go  “this very instant?”

When it comes to living for God... 

They appear to be resistant


As we look at what many

 churches are becoming…

First Peter reminds us that God’s

 judgment is coming!


May there be a hunger for his

 righteous way of living.

The church needs to come to him,,,

 He is loving and forgiving!


Jesus is coming back for a bride…

 Without a wrinkle or spot...

One that’s sold out to Jesus…

 Sanctified.  And blood bought!

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!
