Many in Church Are Spiritually Dead
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Many In Church Are Spiritually Dead!


Many in church are being “spiritually abused.”

In the end, it’s them who are going to lose!


Many have thrown their spiritual life into the gutter.

As they’re consumed with lots of garbage and clutter!


Quality prayer time seems to be a thing of the past…

As many hold on to things that aren’t going to last.


The pride of life, the lust of the flesh to name a few…

Getting involved with things a Christian shouldn’t do.


They come on Sunday morning and look their “best.”

But God looks down from heaven and isn’t impressed!


He sees the faults and sins from man’s wicked heart.

He knows what everyone’s doing from finish to start!


Churches can’t fool God!  There’s no way around it!

TRUE victory in Christ?  Many just haven’t found it!


Those in church need to come clean

before God almighty!

It doesn’t matter if you’re only 10 or the age of ninety!


Repentance and holiness are what’s daily needed!

It’s the only way for a believer’s life to be completed!


Churches need to be alive in Christ, and dead to sins!

And re-discover what true freedom in Christ begins!


The time is now!  Please don’t continue to wait!

Let’s humbly seek Christ now!  For heaven’s sake!

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!
