God's Command; 'Love One Another'
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

God Commands Us To  “Love One Another!”


In the body of Christ… 

One of Satan’s “clever tricks.”

Is to “choose” another to form

 their own “cliques.”


People “choosing” who they believe

is their sister or brother…

Neglecting the great command… 

“Love one another!”


A stranger whom comes to church…

 Has a hard time to find…

Someone who’ll give him just some of their time!


This person could be really in need

and possibly poor.

But after the service… He “hurries”

 out the exit door…


Have we forgotten what being Christ’ child is?

We need to be HIS example in the way we live!


Maybe it’s time that the body of Christ

 break out of it’s “shell.”

And really be concerned about those

on their way to hell!


If it’s people just like you whom

you seem to be “choosing.”

It’s you that will fall short of…  

God’s love and are losing!


It’s time that the body of Christ

 love everyone the same…

Remembering it was for everyone

that our savior came!

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!
