The Great Commission...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Great Commission…


As a believer of Christ…

Is there an “omission?”

In answering the call to

“the great commission?”


Jesus commanded; “Preach the gospel

 to every person…”

All of us can learn from

this a great lesson…


As to this commandment

that Jesus gave…

Why do so many believers appear

“to be afraid?”


 There are many lost souls

who are not believing…

The good news of Christ,

they are not receiving…


Christ alone has the power

to set men free!

His gift of salvation is offered

to both you and me!


We need to speak HIS message

 in love and boldness!

Sharing of God’s redemption

 and HIS righteousness!


God has not given us fear… 

But power, love and a sound mind…

HIS example in our life…Others need to find.


Won’t you share the gospel

 of Jesus Christ today?

So others may know;

“the truth, the life and the way?”


The message of Christ… 

Won’t you beckon HIS call?

For he alone can give true

 meaning and hope to all!


He has the answer to freedom and

the power of forgiving.

And give to everyone

a true reason for living!

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!
