Church Today


Christ Jesus is the source of life                   Heb.5:9

God’s Spirit comes to guide                         Isa.58:11

The church is Jesus’ loyal wife                    Eph.5:31-32

Through grace His faithful bride                  Ro.10:17


The Lord describes through such as Paul    1Ti.3:14-15

How service should be held                         1Cor.14:26-33

To deviate, has brought to fall                     1Cor.1;11-13

Or people who’ve rebelled                           1Ti.1:19


We all in truth should testify

Should glorify God’s Son

Spread holy seed through Christ on high   Mt.28:19-20

Until the battle’s won


No priest can do it on their own

God’s sheep should all take part                Ro.12:3-8

God’s church is led by Christ alone          Eph.1:22

Dwelling within the heart                           Jn.1:1


Not through himself, can man believe

That none should ever boast

True faith’s a gift we each receive           2Pe.1:1

Through God The Holy Ghost                 Ro.12:3


Wondrous gifts and talents too                Mt.25:15-30

Freely The Lord God gives                      Ro.12:6

To build a church, complete and new     Cor.14:12

A house that truly lives                            1Pe.2:5


We live in Christ, through faith and love

Through Heaven’s Word we share                 Dt.8:3

Through faith we’ll change, to rise above     Eph.5:25-27

To live and reign up there


Yet churches fall, or they can stand                Mt.15:14

Depending on the ground                                Mt.7:24-27

But those in Jesus’ nail pierced hand             Jn.10:28

Can never be more sound..…

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.
