Look to Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Look to Jesus

 

Still fools at God will scoff and frown

Cast doubt on Calvary Tree

Dragging the name of Jesus down

So others fail to see

 

They walk as blind the devil’s path

Seeking for selfish gain 

Ignorant of The Father’s wrath

Of hell’s eternal pain

 

They need to learn and know The Christ

Be made aware of sin

Accept The Lamb God sacrificed

Invite Him dwell within

 

The Holy Ghost The Promised One

The Counsellor of Light

The Spirit of The Father’s Son

Who’ll gladly give them sight

 

To heed no more the devil’s lies

One’s spirit must be free

To walk through life with open eyes

The Truth of Christ to see

 

With God one needs to reconcile

See Christ as Lord and King

Walk in His love the extra mile

Life’s victory song to sing

 

Through Christ alone we learn to live

Fear no more to die

Receive of all He longs to give

To rise with Him on high

 

Trusting no longer flesh and bone

Not silver gold or jewel

Only in Christ to Christ alone

To play no more the fool.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
