The Cross...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By James Pemberton

The Cross...
 
Many have lost their
focus of the cross
.
And often... 
It's true meaning
 has been lost.
 
Many are "content" in "their
 own kind of way..."
Not paying attention to what
 God has to say.
 
It's more than going on Sunday
 and "singing a song."
It's the cross of Christ where
 our attention belongs.
 
A Godly lifestyle we must
seek to obtain.
And remember the reason
 why Jesus came!
 
May we have a godly
repentance and sorrow
.
And look to the cross both
 today and tomorrow.
 
The cross of Christ needs
 to burn in us a desire.
To lift up the name of Jesus.
 To lift HIM up higher!
 
If Christ is lifted up, he'll draw
 all men unto him.
So all can find the
 forgiveness of sin!

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!
