Life's Living Key

When Christ is spoken far and wide

Some smile, or shake their fist

Yet most will cast His name aside

And say, “He can’t exist”


Still others say,”Perhaps it’s true

God lives above the earth

But who would ever serve a Jew?

Supposed of virgin birth”


But we of grace, we all agree

It’s God who opens eyes

Through Heaven’s Promise, man can see

The least confound the wise


There is a God, who loves to care

A King who reigns on high

Who truly came man’s shame to bear

And for our sins to die


But then to rise just as He told

Reveal Himself to man

Though only sheep within His fold

Can see Salvation’s plan


With Fire God’s locked the door so tight

With Christ The living Key

Now man can never see the Light

Until he bends the knee


For lowly has a man to pray

And as a child, must fear

With contrite heart, he needs to say

“In faith my God I’m here”


I humbly ask if You’ll forgive

Wipe clean my life before

Give that  my God through which to live

To serve and love You more”..…

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.
