Are You Thankful That Christ Saved

Are You Thankful That Christ Saved Me?


If Christ were to seek your approval to save me…

Would you give it?

For all of the mistakes I’ve committed,

 would you “forgive it?”


Would you tell Christ that I may not be “worth it at all?”

What kind of things would you tell him if you gave him a call?


By your own “predetermined” feelings about me.

There’s really no way in the world you could truly love me.


Would you tell Christ that he “made the wrong choice?”

I can almost hear these words from your voice!


As a follower of Christ,  I suppose one should expect more?

Isn’t this what truly loving and forgiving is really meant for?


We read in God’s word how Christ died and shed his blood.

But quite often, we’re unwilling to give his unconditional love!


We often put our own conditions and expectations on a soul.

We tend to “avoid them” the more “facts” that we know.


I’m so glad that Christ doesn’t treat others the way we often do.

If this were the case, there’s be no meaning

in his love for me and you!


I pray that whatever happens in life, will not cause a “divider.”

To those others around us, we need to be

 compassionate and kinder!


We need to be the focus of God’s purpose and his love revealing.

So that others may find in life a Godly purpose and meaning!


We must try to focus on God and his love and attention…

As we focus on his word for much needed direction!


God is and will always be a rewarder of those who seek him!

May we daily be an encourager for others to believe him


May we not get in the way of God’s plan

 of mercy and salvation!

But spread his love to everyone throughout

this great nation!

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!
