A Christian Coward?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton


A Christian Coward, Or Full Of God’s Power?


Are you, in a way, a Christian coward?

Someone who’s empty

with no Godly power?


If a “Goliath” stood up, would you run away?

Would you “serve God,” another day?


If someone cursed God as Goliath stood tall.

What would you say?  Who would you call?


There’s a lot of “Goliaths” in the

 world around us.

Like King Saul, there’s much

 fear with us.


David stood up to him. 

Can you do the same?

Or would you find someone

 else to blame?


It’s time to stand up for God

 and his holiness too.

We needn’t be afraid, no matter

 what others do.


Let’s have the courage to bring

the giant down!

Let’s let others know there’s

a holy God in town!


The giants all around us will begin

to fall fast.

When we walk in God’s holy power

 and not in the past!


A coward or victorious soldier,

 which will you be?

Where will you be spending

your eternity?

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!
