Whom You Have Rejected...

Whom You Have Rejected...


 


You told me that my sins


 have been forgiven...


Yet, somehow, I've offended you


 by the way I'm livin'.


 


You once talked to me and invited


 me over a time or two...


Now, you've “removed me from your life”


in all you do.


 


Is this what Jesus had in mind


when he died on the cross?


To only save some, and consider


 others as “lost?”


 


If you “choose” who'll be your friend,


and who will not..


Have you truly been redeemed


and blood bought?


 


Does the overwhelming compassion


 of God's love fill your soul?


Or do you choose which people


 in your life... “You'll let go.


 


Perhaps you have offended Jesus by


 the way you've lived today...


What if HE forsook you?


what would you say?


 


I'm glad Jesus doesn't treat me


 the same way you have done.


By rejecting me...  You've rejected


God's precious son!

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!
