Grace Calls To Serve.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

God calls to serve the least, the worst

Who’ve murdered, raped and stole

Sinners walking, living life cursed

Failing life’s vital goal


Heaven awaits each serving saint

Each candle in the night

Free of Satan’s sinful restraints

Spreading salvation’s light


Of self; righteous can no one be

Regardless what we’ve done

Without the Grace on Calvary’s tree

Displayed by God’s own Son


Calling the least, the rich, the poor

The women of the street

Addicts, drunkards who’ll seek life’s cure

Supplied at Jesus’ feet


Lecturers, dons, students who fail

Children who’ve seen no school

Rascals, rogues, wretches in jail

Jesus will make His tool


Donating Heaven’s gifts galore

Abilities and time

In church, outside, each foreign shore

Dividing love sublime


Serving the truth, leading to life

Holding fast Jesus’ hand

With shield with sword through peace and strife

Toward God’s Promised Land


No one’s too lost, wicked or vile

No heart or soul full sin

Repentance cannot reconcile

Eternal life to win…..

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.
