Respond to Christ
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


† † † Respond to Christ

People are dying everywhere

Enveloped with rags of sin

Theyíll find in Christ theyíll have no share

No crown of life to win

They fail to seek Godís Truth & Way

Godís Lamb Godís living Son

But none will fail on judgement day

To see Godís will be done

In death there is the great divide

The bible tells us well

One side reserved for Jesusí bride

The other, eternal hell

The world awaits what coming must

While few seek life beyond

For all eyes see turning to dust

But those who now respond

Respond to Christ, His call to life

Respond who understand

Respond and end all wars and strife

And take each otherís hand

Reach out in love, with peace in mind

Embrace Godís grace so sweet

Convey His message all mankind

Whilst serving at His feet

The flesh torn feet that walked the earth

Godís living Truth and Light

Bringing release, brings second birth

Brings robes of shining white

Yet fear persists to losing out

Hinders to climb lifeís hill

Will cause to fail through foolish doubt

And through our selfish willÖ..

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.
