See! as Peter Saw
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

         See! as Peter saw

Although we know salvation’s free

Through Christ for all to take

Some still persist as oft we see

Life’s precious Gift to fake


Not all who sit in church are saved

Not all are born on high                                 1Pe.1:23

Without God’s Lamb though well behaved

We’re cold inside and dry


Salvation’s not a passing trend

But life’s eternal door

Gratis to all whose knees will bend

And see as Peter saw                                     Mt.16:16


Apostle Paul could see it too

Could see his jailer’s need                            Ac.16:30

So he could join the chosen few

He shared with him life’s Seed                    Ac.16:31


The truth of Christ was then revealed

An exit to his guilt

The jaws of death were finally sealed

And life’s true road was built


It’s through this rock true life’s received   Mt.16:18

God’s word like rivers flow

His Seed of truth, when once received

Inside will surely grow


It opens wide the blindest eyes

It guides all those who’ve strayed

Though foolishness to those who die

It’s wisdom when obeyed


We must be real and not pretend

With lies, there’s nought to gain

Remain God true until the end

If with His Son to reign…..

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.
