Let's Take Pride in Knowing Jesus!

Let’s Take Pride In Knowing Jesus!


Many people take pride in perverted things.

Not realizing the consequences this often brings.


They’re proud and want everyone to know it.

And often wave a flag and are happy to show it.


The bible says that pride goes before a fall!

What scripture says needs to wake us all!


It speaks of man having a fallen sin nature.

It also describes man as a “fallen creature.”


Man’s pride comes from a sinful heart.

Repenting before God is a good place to start!


It’s the sin inside of us that God is ashamed of.

We often do things that we

 shouldn’t even speak of!


Let’s come and kneel before

 the power of Jesus name!

And seek his forgiveness in what

 brings HIM shame!


Let’s seek the holiness of God this very hour!

Let’s be filled with his love

 and righteous power!


When God used the rainbow, he wiped away sin.

And gave mankind another

 chance to begin!


We need to be cleansed by Jesus’ shed blood.

And be filled with his presence and HIS love!


Taking pride in Jesus is the most important thing!

He’s the alpha and omega!

 Our everything!


Let’s display the banner of the cross up on high!

And bring honor to God almighty!  El Shaddai!


Let’s praise God for everything that he’s done!

All glory to the father, the spirit and son!

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!
