God's Not Dead!

God’s Not Dead!


If God’s dead, then who’s this living in my soul?

He’s the one who came and made me whole!


If he’s dead, than who made me a new person?

Who offers all eternal life

as a valuable lesson?


If he’s dead, than who arose on the third day?

Who’s no longer dead, but rolled the stone away?


If he’s dead, than who gives life abundantly?

Who prepared for us

 a mansion for eternity!


If he’s dead, than all hope and peace is lost!

Jesus brought salvation

through the cross!


If he’s dead, than there’s no reason to carry on…

Though I am weak, he remains strong!


He’s not dead!  This is something

all should see!

God gives hope and eternal

life for you and me!


He’s not dead!  He’s alive through

resurrection power!

Our lives can be changed this very hour!


He’s not dead!  Heaven’s gate is open.

Through Jesus, all can enter,

 through his word spoken!


Come one and all!  Let’s celebrate

  Christ the King!

He’s our righteousness,

God and everything!

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!
