Are Churches Ready for Christ's Ret

Are Churches Ready For Christ's Return?


It appears that many in church aren’t concerned..

About the imminent possibility of Christ; return!


It seems like the opposite is happening today…

Just listen to what many in church have to say…


They often get involved with the people from town.

And allow other’s sins to “drag them down…”


Rather than seeking a life of God’s holiness.

Many get involved with things

 that bring “emptiness.”


Being 100% sold out to Jesus is called “old fashioned.”

Many don’t seek Christ with a sincere passion!


No wonder many in church are in such “dire straits”

Many are leading people right to “hell’s gates…”


Rather than a house of prayer, it’s a “house of fools.”

Just about anything not of God is what “rules.”


Rather than accepting God’s word as 100% true…

Many get involved with things they shouldn’t do!


Forsaking their love for Christ above all others…

Lives of sin and bondage…. 

They bring to the altar!


What an embarrassment to Jesus’ holy name!

Many in church out to really be ashamed!


Jesus called us to come out and be separate…

So many lives are confused and very “desperate.”


It’s time to come clean and be filled

with Godly living!

Walking in God’s awesome power

 and forgiving!


Christ must be our first love!

 And him alone!

May his righteousness fill

our churches and homes!

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!
