People In Church Need to Reach The Lost!


I heard the preacher preaching on

reaching the lost.

He said that we as believers must

 focus on the cross.

I was hopeful and said this is

what I want to do.

He said; "this church has no place

 for people like you."


He mentioned all of their many

 types of activities.

He talked about them having

 n "holiday festivity."

He talked about the ways members

were involved.

He added, "there's too many problems for

 this church to solve."


Apparently, reaching the lost

 was a fantasy in his mind.

He has too many other things

occupying his time.

If this church won't share the gospel

to the lost soul...

Who is this Christ that many of us

 claim to know?


We should think of what our relationship

 to Christ about.

Let's be filled with his boldness

 and power throughout!

If we're ashamed of the gospel,

then we're playing a game.

Let's testify of the goodness there

 is in Jesus' name!

Christ' gave us the Holy spirit

 with God's power!

Let's reach the lost… 

 This could be our last hour!

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!
