Selfishly Willing.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


When lost in sin when feeling weak

When greed directs your soul

When unable God’s truth to speak

You’re failing true life’s goal

 

Killers, liars may take a pew

Thieves take bibles in hand

But what you say and what you do

I fail to understand

 

When selfishly you frequent church

When wealth’s your primary will

Just like a vulture on its perch

You seek to eat your fill

 

Even standing as pastor there

Ordained in church, to preach

If you don’t love don’t truly care

You have no grounds to teach

 

God's eyes are watching over you

Although it seems absurd

Your every deed He has in view

Your every word is heard

 

Who do you think you’re kidding friend?

To whom are you the fool?

Best cease to him your knee to bend

And beg Christ Jesus rule

 

Stop what you do, watch what you say

Repent; seek God on high

In righteousness find Heaven’s Way

Before you come to die

 

Most sacred, are The Father’s sheep

Precious each broken heart

Special are they God’s laws will keep

Never His Ways to part.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
