Someone Asked Me a Question...

Someone Asked Me a Question...
Someone asked me
 the following question...
What does it really mean
 to be a Christian
I tried to explain the best
way that I could...
"It means to obey God's
commands and to be good."
As I spoke these words. 
It became more revealing.
The words I spoke...
Were a bit "deceiving."
It's more than just "being good,"
& obeying God's commands.
It's a way of living...
That I need to understand.
Being an example of Christ...
is what I need to be!
Loving him... And being
 his light for all men to see!
As I please the heavenly father,
 in what I say and do...
During my struggles and temptations... 
He will see me through!
Being a Christian is really a
"brand new way of living
It's my life for Christ... 
Is what I am giving!
Jesus will never disappoint those
who choose him to follow...
He is always with us... 
Both today and tomorrow!

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!
