God Is Love and Is Holy

God Is Love and Is Holy!


Tolerance and love is preached…  But, at what price?

Too often we forget about Jesus’ sacrifice!


His death was because our sin counted against us.

He died on the cross because he truly loves us!


How dare we “cheapen” his work on the cross!

In today’s “political correctness..”  We have lost!


In the love and acceptance, we call it “inclusion.”

This has led many into a serious “confusion.”


Many want the loving side of God.  I can’t blame them!

But those who seek his holiness… 

Can you name them?


God is a God of love.  But he requires holy living too!

This is not a request but a command

for me and you!


If it’s tolerance and love you want…  Look no more!

You’ll be able to find it washed up on sin’s shore!


The people of Israel wanted “free love.”

 Look what it got them!

Being slaves and captives, is what

 it taught them!


God is a loving God!

But is also as a consuming fire!

Living a righteous life, is what he really desires!


“Without holiness…  No man shall see him.”

That’s why he sent Jesus, to the world beneath him!


Won’t you allow your sins to be totally forgiven?

Only Jesus can change the way

 you’ve been livin’!


He gives eternal life to those who

 diligently seek him!

The choice is yours to repent and receive him!

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!
