Accept the Offer

 

 

Christ’s offer of life is free to all

Christ’s hands are stretched out wide

But who on earth will heed God’s call?

To join the few inside

 

Assist the lost to find The Way

Enable them to see

Reveal the world without delay

Eternal life is free

 

Let the importance now be seen

Ring loud life’s warning bell

Till those becoming Jesus’ queen

Are safe from death and hell

 

By grace she granted Jesus’ ring

Life’s crown and Heaven’s keys

Forever her Saviour’s praise she’ll sing

When Satan bends his knees

 

For Christ The Lord has won the fight

As mortal flesh and bone

Soon in His hand His bride of Light

May join Him on His throne

 

It’s neither lie nor fairy tale

The Truth will surely stand

God’s promises will never fail

For those in Jesus’ band

 

The glory that awaits us there

In ever flowing streams

The least The Lord has now to share

Exceeds our wildest dreams

 

Knowing the facts of Jesus’ bride

Knowing what God will give

What fool would cast the gift aside?

Eternally to live.....

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.
