Let's Love As Jesus Does!

Let’s Love AS Jesus Does!

 

I’m going to say this, till my last breath…

“Forgiveness is a matter

of life and death.

 

Many holding a grudge for

 whatever reason…

They remain this way throughout

 the seasons.

 

They keep telling themselves

 “it’s alright.”

Yet hold on to resentment

 night after night.

 

Jesus, who forgave us all, what

 does he see?

Too many of his children

 in a “deep red sea.”

 

A redness that has blurred

 their vision…

They have yet to learn God’s

call and mission!

 

A mission and commandment

 to love our bother.

NO greater command than to

“love one another.”

 

If there’s someone that you have

 “blocked” and “left out,”

Then you are missing on what Christ

is all about!

 

He was falsely accused but sacrificed

 for all the same.

Let’s walk in the love and mercy of

precious name!

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!
