No More a Fool

No More a Fool


Though many watched The Saviour die

Though many saw Him live

Yet only a few reasoned why

His life He chose to give


They didn’t know! The living Christ

They failed The Truth to see

Why Heaven’s Lamb was sacrificed

How God would set us free


Though selfless love has much to share

Beyond life’s final gate

Those lost blind men tormenting there

Had sealed their dreadful fate


Even now though truth’s being taught

Revealing facts on high

Sharing the world Jesus’ report

Many like fools still die


They disbelieve what Jesus said

What prophets have foretold

These too like fools are walking dead

Just like the fools of old


Beset with lust with foolish pride

With selfish hearts aflame

With none to teach, no one to guide

They’ll perish with their shame


It’s by God’s grace I too am free

By grace today I live

The Truth of Jesus made me see

That life has much to give


So now I know I need to change

Given a brand new start

My way of life I’ll rearrange

Through Jesus in my heart……..

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.
