Jesus Forgave Me! Have YOU?

Jesus Forgave Me!  Have You???



 



You told me that my sins



 have been forgiven.



Yet, I've offended you



 by the way I'm livin'.



 



You once talked to me and invited



 me over once or twice...



Now, you've “removed me from your life”



That’s not very nice!.



 



Is this what Jesus had in mind,



when he died on the cross?



To only save some...



But treat others as “lost?”



 



If you “choose” who'll be your friend,



and who will not.



Have you truly been redeemed



& blood-bought?



 



Does the true compassion



 of God's love fill your soul?



Or do you choose which people



 in your life, “you'll let go.



 



Perhaps you have offended Jesus by



 the way you've lived today.



What if HE abandoned you?



What would you say?



 



I'm glad Jesus doesn't treat me



 the same way you have done.



By rejecting me...



  You’ve rejected God's son!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
