Am I Being Christ's Example to Othe
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Am I Being Christ’ Example to Others?


Being an example of Jesus, 

is an important task!

Serving HIM with all of my heart… 

 Is what he asks!


All that I have...  My God has freely given!

He wants me to be his example... 

In the way I’ve been livin’!


My priority shouldn’t be to seek man’s praise…

But to live my life for God

 all of my days!


What good is it, if I just

 “blink my eyes?

If I neglect the lost and hurting lives???


Perhaps in church, 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 just stop and think!


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

another’s shoes!

If I’m not giving Christ in my actions…

 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!
