We Need God's Righteousness and Hol
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

We Need God’s Righteousness and Holiness NOW!


A person was raised in church as a young man.

He was involved with worship and a gospel band.


Then one day, he seemed to have a “new” conversion.”

He bragged about his “new” life of ungodly perversion.


This kind of thing is happening all over the place.

It seems like anything falls under “love and grace.”


What happened to the churches in this nation today?

Have we forgotten what God’s word has to say?


What do many of us come to a church service for?

What happens the moment we enter the door?


Are we here to seek man’s approval

 in what we believe?

What kind of filth and lies have

 people in church received?


God’s purpose in his word, is to help us overcome!

He’s given us victory through the sacrifice of his son!


Jesus is coming back for a bride without spot or blemish!

Without his holiness in our life, we’ll one day perish!


Let’s come before our Lord in repentance

 and sorrow!

Let’s do it today!  Jesus may

come tomorrow!


By Jim Pemberton   (c) 2017


Ephesians 5:27Amplified Bible (AMP)

27 so that [in turn] He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy [set apart for God] and blameless.

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!
