Is This Church for Me?

Is This Church For Me?


Is this church here for me?

Is this where God wants me to be?


They claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

It's one thing to say…   Another to live it.


I'm sure there's many good

people who attend.

It's more than "church on Sunday"

we must spend.


Rather than just me doing "the church thing."

lost souls for Jesus we're

commanded to bring.


Church must not be a sponge!-

it must reach out!

This is what Christianity is about!


This church's ministry must certainly extend,

beyond those people that we call our "friend."


We must reach out to the lost

and oppressed,

For JESUS, we're to do our very best!


We must make an effort to reach the lost soul,

if we're to one day make heaven our goal!

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!
