Jesus Has Forgiven Me! Have YOU?

Jesus Has Forgiven Me!  Have You?


You told me that my sins

 have been forgiven.

Yet, somehow, I've offended you

 by the way I'm livin'.


You once talked to me and invited

 me over a time or two.

But you removed me from your life

In everything you do!


Is this what Jesus had in mind

when he died on the cross?

To only save some, and consider

 others as “lost?”


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

and who will not?

Haven’t  you also been forgiven

& blood-bought?


Does the overwhelming 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 forsook you—

what would you say?


I'm glad Jesus doesn't treat me

 the same way youve done!

By rejecting me…   You rejected

God's precious 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!
