We Need To Know The Bible!

We Need To Know The Bible!


We all need to get the Bible and read it!

We may not admit it, but we NEED it!


We need its Godly truth and foundation.

We need it as the bedrock for our nation!


Its principles of truth ring loud for sure!

It brings God’s word to man most secure!


It gives us a picture of God’s mercy and grace.

It speaks of Christ’ dying to take our place.


It reminds us of how we need God this hour.

It speaks of our sin and redemption’s power!


It gives Godly wisdom and is forever revealing.

It reminds of evil’s face that’s most “appealing.”


It speaks of a narrow and righteous path to take.

It speaks of heaven and Jesus being the “open gate.”


It reminds of of the prophets that were of old.

The same God they served, one day, we can behold.


It brings to us examples of men who failed God’s test.

It reminds of that through Christ, we can be blessed!


It brings to mankind a much needed Godly direction.

It speaks to our hearts the power of the resurrection!


Let’s all be challenged to ready the Bible today!

Let’s heed and listen to what God has to say!


May the truth of God’s word convict us of our sin!

May we be encouraged o be BORN AGAIN!


The Bible will always lead us to the work on the cross!

Without it in our lives, we’re doomed and lost!


God’s word in our life is what’s

 always needed.

Only through God’s truth, can our life

 be completed!

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!
