To Be Like Him
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

� � � � � To be Like Him

Demonstrative in word and deed

Decisive, faithful true

Beneficial where ere there�s need

Righteousness through and through

He�ll judge the quick; He�ll judge the dead

He�ll judge both head and tail

Adulterers in the devil�s bed

With righteous line and scale

Perfection now must be one�s aim

Each thought to God�s delight

That when life�s works He tries by Flame

They�re pleasing in His sight

Stand firm in Christ for Christ is strong

Yet tolerate the weak

Trust in The Arm righteous and long

No need where else to seek

Return to Christ who�ve gone astray

Give bread to those with none

Help each other along The Way

Let Heaven�s will be done

Words are power where hearts are right

Where souls make Christ their choice

Where spirits drink The Morning Light

And hearken to His voice

Rely on Christ not worldly stays�

Take heart and never feign

Be Jesus true in all your ways

Let life be now your gain

The faithful; will The Father please

Obedience; draws His love

The Way; is found on bended knees

While eyes are trained above.....

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.
