    Called as Evangelists

A few may come, a few may learn

Yet most will wonder why

Countless will fail their filth to burn

And consequently die

 

To wash their feet we’re plainly told –Jn.13:5-17

“Go set my people free” –Mt.28:19-20

Bringing them in from out the cold

Not selfish serving “ME” –Ro.2:8, Jam.5:5

 

God’s child should work while yet there’s day –Jn.9:4

The world must see The Light –Mt.5:14-16

The lost; we need to show The Way –Ro.10:14

How soon will come the night

 

Not all are called on streets to cry

Not all can preach God’s Word –Ro.10:15

Yet all at least should testify! –2Ti.1:8, Lk.9:26

To those, who’ve still not heard

 

We all can speak of Christ God’s Son –Jn.3:11

How Jesus comes to reign –Rev.3:20, Eph.2:22

About the miracles He’s done –Rev.12:11

When truly born again –Jn.3:3,5

 

If not; its time to take account

Investigate and see

Have we the right on Zion mount? –Ps.24:3-4

Has Jesus set us free?

 

We all should now evangelise

We all should serve The Bread –Jn.21:15

We all should open blinded eyes –Mt.28:20

And even raise the dead –Mt.10:8+Ac,9:40+Ac.20:9-10

 

Through Christ, The Truth we learn to see

What now we bind on earth –Mt.16:19

In Heaven too, by Royal decree –Jn.14:13

Heaven will bring to birth…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
