Are You Still Serving Jesus?

Are You Still Serving Jesus?

 

Are you the same person

 I once knew?

What, in the world,

 happened to you?

 

You once loved the mention

of Jesus' name.

Now all you do is complain.

 

The joy of the Lord once made you glad.

But lately you seem

defeated and sad.

 

What happened to the fire

that burned within?

What happened to the one  

I called "friend?"

 

Do you love Jesus like you once did?

Look at you now-and how you live!

 

You've allowed the pleasures of life

 to get a hold on you.

What, for Christ’ sake,

are you going to do?

 

Call out to him now and accept

 his mercy and grace.

Kneel at his feet and seek his face.

 

Seek him now...while he still may be found.

Where sin and bondage are...

grace does abound!

 

Today, in your life,.make a love

for Jesus a reality.

So you can be with him throughout eternity.

 

Only his love can make your life

complete and whole.

He loves you more than

you'll ever know!

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!
