Serving a False God or the True God

Serving a False God Or the True God?


We often read about the

 Israelites in the Bible.

They rejected God and

 made a false idol.


Forsaking the true God who

 brought them from Egypt..

False worship from this land,

they decided to “keep it.”.


After Moses went up to the mountain…

 They formed a golden calf.

The God who saved them…

they mocked and laughed.


The wrath and fury of the true

God soon prevailed!

The false image of a calf

 was worshiped, but FAILED!


Are you serving the true God? 

Or one made by human hands?

Do you seek the glory of God? 

Or the perversion of this land?


God has given to us all his commands. 

We must obey them!

God gives us scripture to live by,

and not just say them!


This same God of Moses is the same one

 who lives today!

Listen to his voice!  And the words

 he has to say!


Don’t serve a false God,

but the God of creation!

Won’t you come now and receive

his gift of salvation?

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!
