Who Is Right?

Who Is Right?


We’d like to think our church is fine

Our doctrine’s right and true

Yet some observe the bread and wine

With only self in view


The church belongs to Christ God’s Son

Through blood through birth anew

And as His bride we must be one

United through and through


For Life and Truth to saturate

The world The Light to see

To serve and not procrastinate

But bend to Christ the knee


When self and pride comes tumbling down

When Jesus’ bride we’ve served

Humility; gives Christ the crown

His royal place deserved


Of course it’s nice to think we’re right

To walk the way we should

But if our deeds despise The Light

Our life is not that good


With Christ in mind with Christ in view

We’ll see The Promised Land

But not if one’s not born anew

Without The Master’s hand


When Christ as Lord, we’ve lifted up

When Christ is on His throne

Blessings will fill each servant’s cup

Who’s heart’s no longer stone    


We need to turn our thoughts above

Consult of God what’s wrong

Accept the facts of Jesus’ love

Singing His graceful song.....

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.
