Will You Be Christ' Example?

Will You Be An Example for Christ?


Will you be an example of those

 who aren’t afraid to say…

“I’m going to bow my head

 to the Lord and pray.”


Will you be an example of a godly mind?

To be respectful, courteous and kind?


Will you be an example, and take a stand?

Against the tide of evil

all throughout this land?


Will you be an example?  Just one person?

Who’ll live by the Bible…

And apply it’s lessons?


Do we have an example of those

 to teach the younger generation…

That living for God will give us a solid foundation?


Do we have an example?  Anyone to be found?

Who’ll spread the gospel

to every city and town?


Will you be Christ’ example?  Can others look to YOU?

Who’ll try to live the way Jesus wants us to?


Will you be one, with the courage to live?

Being Christ example with the power to FORGIVE!


Are you available for God to anoint?

There’s Jesus!  And he will NEVER disappoint!


 Being Christ’ example?  Most assuredly YES!

In HIM can you have security,

  peace and REST!


Being his example, means giving your life to him?

Experience what it means to be “born again!”


His example of love can be yours and mine…

Won’t you give HIM a chance?

  While there’s still time?

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!
