Coming Back to the Cross...

Coming Back to The Cross...


Have we lost our focus of the cross?.

Has it’s meaning, in our lives,

been lost?.


Are we "content" in "our

 own kind of way..."

Not paying attention to what

Jesus has to say.


It's more than going on Sunday

 and "singing a song."

It's the cross of Christ where

 our attention belongs.


A Godly lifestyle we must


And remember the reason

 why Jesus came!


May we have a godly

repentance and sorrow.

And look to the cross both

 today and tomorrow.


The cross of Christ needs

 to burn in us a desire.

To lift up the name of Jesus.

 To lift HIM up higher!


If Christ is lifted up, he'll draw

 all men unto him.

So all can find the

 forgiveness of sin!

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!
