The Unpardonable Sin???
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton
Other Poems by James Pemberton



The "Unpardonable Sin?"
You act as if I committed the
 "unpardonable sin."
Somehow... I've offended you once again.
I'm not sure exactly
 what I said or did.
Whatever it was...
 You're unwilling to forgive.
I thought Jesus said to
"forgive 70 times 7."
If someday you want to make
your home in heaven.
If you can't truly love me in Jesus' name.
What message of love
 do you proclaim
Maybe it's time we focus
 on who Christ is.
Because of his forgiveness... 
mankind lives!
Whatever offense I made... 
Needs to be washed in Jesus' blood.
We're called to be a new creation. 
An example of HIS love!
Please don't bring up the past.
We're all sinners.  There's no
 "upper" or "lower" class.
Release any unforgiveness you
may have in your heart.
This is where Christianity really starts!
May a Christ-like example in you,
 others will find.
For only then will you truly have
 a Godly peace of mind!

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!
