If Jesus Came Today...

If Jesus Came Today...


So many people attending

church are “faking it.”

If Jesus came today, many

 wouldn't make it.


Salvation in Jesus is what

 they all claim.

Some of them in church-you may

know their name.


They go to  church Sunday &

Wednesday night.

But things in their lives

 aren't allright.


Indulging in sin of the

soul and mind.

But on Sundays, they think

everything's “fine.”


Entertaining their desires of the flesh.

No wonder their lives

“are in a big mess.”


Now's the time to make Jesus

Lord of everything.

A sincere and broken heart

 to him you must bring.


Now's the time to make

a brand new start!

Man looks on the outside...

but God knows your heart!


You must daily be an example

for Jesus for all to see.

Only Jesus—not church—can

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!
