What Does the Cross Mean to You???

What Does The Cross Mean to You?


Many have lost their

focus of the cross.

Often, it's true meaning

 has been lost.


Many are "happy" in "their

 own kind of way..."

Not paying attention to what

 the cross has to say.


It's more than going on Sunday

 and singing a song"

It's the cross of Christ where

 our attention belongs.


A Godly lifestyle we  

need to obtain.

And remember the reason

 why Jesus came!


May we seek a godly

repentance and sorrow.

And look to the cross both

 today and tomorrow.


The cross of Christ needs

 to burn in us a desire...

To lift up the name of Jesus!

 To lift HIM up higher!


If Christ is lifted up, he'll draw

 all men unto him.

So all can find the

 atonement of sin!

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!
