We Need to Share Christ with Others

We Need to Share Jesus With Others!


I was talking to someone, who’d friend recently died.

 ”I should’ve told him about Jesus!”  “But I never tried!”


He was thinking about many opportunities that passed him by.

He didn’t think about this, until he seen his friend die…


“I should’ve told him about Christ.”  Were the words spoken.

Now, he was crying out to God, with a heart that’s broken.


Scripture says; “it’s appointed once to die, and then judgment.”

Our life is but for a short time,

and gone in one moment!


He began talking about how he “could’ve,” or “should’ve.”

But this was just too overwhelming,

for him to speak of.


He wanted to share what the Lord Jesus had given…

He was grateful for the fact that his sins are forgiven.


He sat down in prayer and determined in his mind….

He’d share Jesus with others!  This was the time!


His friend was gone…  And there was no way to reach him!

But there was something God wanted to teach him!


May we all be encouraged to share Christ with others!

This is a way to fulfill; “love and serve one another!”


There may be a friend that God wants you to reach out to!

Christ has given all that you need…  So won’t you???


“That others may know Christ.”

 This needs to be our goal!

With God’s help, we can share HIS

good news with  every lost soul!

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!
