Consider and Decide

 

Man’s grave on earth is not the end

Though flesh may see decay

Decide, decide, decide my friend

Decide to live God’s Way

 

Consider Jesus Christ of old

Consider Christ today

Regard my friend the things He told

Whilst walking Heaven’s way

 

Consider why He chose to die

Consider well your sins

Consider now The Judge on high

When Judgement day begins

 

Consider well your deeds my friend

Each word and every thought

Will love and grace your life defend?

When angels give report

 

Will Jesus Christ be at your side?

Will judgement set you free?

When all the facts you’ve tried to hide

Are plain for all to see

 

Consider now God’s judgement day

Excuses there you’ll give

When everything is on display

Of how today you live

 

Consider Heaven’s offer now

Consider Jesus well

If to life’s King your knees will bow

Before the gates of hell

 

God’s Promise could be yours my friend

Heaven and all within

If now your wayward ways would end

And live no more to sin.....

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.
