Are You A Pretending Christian?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Are You a “Pretending” Christian?


During your life’s journeys,

 is there an ambition…

In becoming, what some may call,

 a “pretending Christian?


Do you hide the cross

under your sleeve?

When others as of Christ… 

Do you wish they’d leave?


Do you want others to know

 what you really believe?

What kind of answer

Would others receive?


Would it be an answer

of a Godly love?

In serving a God who reigns

 in the heavens above?


Could you share your faith

 in a savior’s saving power.

Can you be an example for Christ…

This very hour???


Would there be doubt of WHO

 whom you serve?

Before someone can

“throw you another curve?”


I pray, that as Christians,

 we can be very certain.

Of our faith in Christ,

before life’s final curtain


I pray that in us, others can see

Christ’ love in action

Following in his steps needs to be

 our daily reaction…


There’s no “undercover Christians”

serving the God that I know.

He’s looking for someone who’ll serve him

 in body, mind and soul…


Are you someone whom God can depend?

Can God call you;  “FRIEND?”

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!
