Reaching the Lost...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Reach the Lost...
 
Isn't it time we stop pretending?
And come to the cross
and start remembering.
 
Remembering why...  on Sunday,
 we come to one place.
As an expression of God's
 love and grace.
 
We must reach beyond
 our four walls.
Even if it takes us to homes... 
or shopping malls.
 
If we don't reach out beyond
 our church building.
What kind of example
 for Christ are we living?
 
We must step beyond
 out one "cliques."
And reach the lost,
the needy and the sick.
 
We must start now.  With no delay.
Do you really believe Christ

could come today?
 
We're all called to be
 "fishers of men."
If others are to ever be born again.
 
The time is short.
 Christ' coming is at hand.
We must preach the gospel
throughout the land.
 
The harvest is ready. 
The laborers are few.
What... for Christ' sake... 
Are you going to do?

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!
