Are You Withholding Christ' Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Are You Withholding  Christ' Love For Others?


Are you holding back the love

 Christ gave you?

Are you treating others the

 way HE would want you to?


What message of the cross

  do you proclaim?

Is it of humility and honor to Jesus’ name?


Is there someone whom you’ve

 withheld Christ’ love today?

You avoid this person, and

 choose to “go the other way…”


The Spirit of God has been

 tugging at your heart…

This is where the essence of

 Christianity really starts!


All of our faults and sin,

 Christ bore on the cross.

Without him...  Every one of us

 would certainly be lost!


While reading 1 Corinthians chapter 13…

Does this scripture

truly mean “anything?”


If it did… We’d be more careful how we live.

And learn the power there is

in the words; “I forgive!”


If this message has lost it’s

 meaning in your daily walk.

Then you and Jesus really need to talk!


Surrendering to him is the key!

In being his true follower…  And set free!


Bring everything to the cross

 and lay it at Jesus’ feet.

And experience a life of victory….

 And not defeat!

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!
