Wake Up... Church!!!

Wake Up...  Church!!!
 
Many churches are
 "boring and dull."
Just look at the pews!
 Many are full!
 
They say; "Just look at the
 size of our number!"

Not knowing that many are
in a "spirit of slumber."
 
Hey church!  It's about time you
listen to God's trumpet sound!

And begin to preach the gospel
 of Jesus all around!
 
Perhaps this truth
needs to be told.
According to Revelation. 
You're either hot or cold!
 
May Christ put in your heart
 a burning desire.

To praise his name and
lift it up higher!
 
You're bought with a price.
 You're not your own!
Is it heaven or hell... That will be
your eternal home?

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!
