Jesus... Help Me to Reach Others!

Jesus…   Help Me To Reach Others!

 

Sharing Jesus’ love with others,

is an important task!

Serving HIM with all of my heart, 

 is what he asks!

 

Even I have...  Jesus has freely given!

He simply wants me to obey him... 

In the way I’m livin’!

 

My priority in life needn’t be

 to seek man’s praise…

But to sacrifice my life for God

 all of my days!

 

What good is it, if I’m

filled with “gossip and lies?”

And yet keep neglecting the lost

 and hurting lives???

 

Perhaps in churches, there’s a tendency

 to be political.

If I’m not concerned about others…

 I’m “hypocritical!”

 

Jesus said; “I was naked.  You didn’t clothe me.”

 “Thirsty...  You gave nothing to drink.”

May these words of Christ help me

 to really stop and think!

 

If not for God’s grace…  I could be in

another’s shoes!

If I’m not giving Christ to others…

 I’m going to lose!

 

I’ll simply grow in self-righteousness

 pride and greed…

If I’m not willing to be Christ’

 hand extended to those in need!

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!
