An Undercover Christian

An Undercover Christian?


During your life’s journeys,

 is there an ambition…

In becoming, (what others would call),

 an “undercover Christian?


Do you hide the “badge of the cross”

under your sleeve?

When others approach you… 

Do you wish they’d leave?


You may not want anyone to know

 What you really believe.

What kind of answer… From you…

would others receive?


Would it be an answer of a Godly

 and faithful love?

In serving a God who reigns

 in the heavens above?


Could you give a reason for the faith

 in a savior’s saving power.

Can you be an example for Christ…

This very hour???


Would there be any doubt of the God

 whom you serve?

Before someone can

“throw you another curve?”


I pray, that as Christians,

 we can be very certain.

Of our faith in Christ…

before life’s final curtain


I pray that in us, others can see

Christ’ love in action

Following in his steps needs to be

 our daily reaction…


There’s no “undercover Christians”

serving the God that I know.

He’s looking for someone who’ll serve him

 in body, mind and soul…


Are you someone that God

can truly depend?

Are you someone whom God

 can call;  “FRIEND?”

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!
