Are You a Christian.....?

Are You a Christian

 

One day a knock came to my door

I opened it for two

They spoke of God of Heaven’s law

And asked me what I do

 

If I were Christian they enquired

If I would join their few

Saying the Bible was God inspired

And written by the Jew

 

Further saying The Lord could save

Could heal a broken heart

Could help one flee both death and grave

And grant a brand new start

 

Is Heaven’s word your daily bread?

Does God with you agree?

Or do you walk as though you’re dead

You fail The Truth to see?

 

Do you speak in faith, think of grace?

Do anything in love?

Do you consider God always

Mindful of life above

 

Have you confessed through Christ your shame?

Repented deeds of sin

You’re graced as host to Heaven’s Flame

His Promise from above

 

How truly blessed I was that day

Learning of Heaven’s love

Of when I heard about The Way

Sinners may rise above     

 

So now in turn I’m asking you!

Are you of Christ like me?

And if like me you’d live anew

Once Truth has set you free.....

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.
