Jesus, Not Church, Get's Me Excited

Jesus, Not Church, Get’s Me Excited!


It’s Jesus, not church,

that gets me excited.

Everything I need,

he's already provided1


Jesus is the one that won’t disappoint me.

Though there’s many in church

who say they love me.


Jesus is more than a Sunday experience.

Loving him is more than a

“religious appearance.”


He’s than worthy of all honor and praise!

I want to humbly serve him all of my days!


Hallelujah!  Worthy is the lamb forevermore!

Jesus is God!  And is worth

sacrificing for!


He is and shall always be

 the Lord for me!

He has come that I may be set FREE!


May all religious idols be “swallowed up.”

May the Lord Jesus Christ

be lifted up!


Knowing him is the most important thing.

No matter the confusion

religion may bring!


Please come Lord Jesus

and touch me today!

Hell’s gate is broad, but narrow

 is your way!


You give to me what no church

 can ever give!

You give me hope, and a reason to LIVE!

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!
