I Serve Jesus because I Love Him!

I Serve Jesus Because I Love Him!


I don’t serve Jesus, not because I have to.

I serve him, simply because I WANT to!


I’m going to praise him for loving me.

Each day, I feel his presence around me.


I’m going to bless him in the words I say!

As he gives needed strength for today.


I’m going to read his word in deep meditation.

And think about his mercy and salvation.


I’m going to testify, that others may know...

Only he can bring peace to our soul.


I want to invite you, to receive him too!

The choice is yours..  What will you do?


He waits for you!  The decision is yours!

Won’t you accept a life that’s secure?


Will you join me?  And come before him?

Let’s raise our hands together!

  And praise him!


Let’s give him our life as a sacrifice of living.

And enter his gates, with hearts of thanksgiving!


Let’s lift up the name of Jesus toward the sky.

And drink of the living water, which satisfies!


May we take this time, and serve Christ together!

We can join him now!

And be with him forever!

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!
