I Need to Reach the Lost for Christ

I Need to Reach the Lost For Christ!


There’s lost souls in this world.

Am I concerned?

There’s a lost soul at about

every turn!


With each day that

 passes me by.

To many of my neighbors,

 I’ve only said: “Hi!”


Am I too busy to give the

 lost some of my time?

I go to church on Sundays.

 I’ve “committed no crime.”


I’ve never led a person in

 the sinner’s prayer.

“Why should I waste my time?”

 “Why should I care?”


I know that Jesus commands

us to reach the lost.

But I’ve never sacrificed

 what this would cost.


I know that when Jesus

 comes back again,

He’ll expect me to reach

 the lost souls of men.


There must be in my heart a hunger

 for the lost souls…

If one day I plan to make

 heaven my goal!

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!
