Consider Debt.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

Consider all that is today

With life with death in view

Consider Heaven’s righteous Way

And when your days are through


Consider the power of love

The consequence of hate

Approximate God’s thoughts above

Now scrutinise inside


Consider well what should be done

To conquer certain death

So endless life would now be won

Before your final breath


Consider no one! Can God deceive

That all; His eyes can see

What can be done to earn reprieve?

And from death’s clutch be free


We know God’s true the devil’s real

Man’s judgement will be fair

Through Jesus’ blood, we must appeal

For grace God’s love to share


What has our sinful life achieved?

Our shameful lies obtained

What foolishness have we believed?

For death to keep us chained


Surely God’s Lamb can help us still

If one would yet repent

If one would seek His righteous will

Would not The Lord relent?


As Father, His love must be immense!

For children with regret

Seeking their parents' recompense

Free of eternal debt .....

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.
