Drenched in Sin
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


         Drenched in Sin

If sinful man would care to change

The Lord would understand

By grace and love He’d rearrange

Through Jesus’ careful hand


With Holy Ghost and Heaven’s Flame

Shining in radiant Light

He’d give to each a brand new name

With robe of purest white


Though some in Christ still play as fools

Though truth’s made crystal clear

Like little children breaking rules

Jesus we show no fear –Jn.14:15


What good are Christians playing dumb?

Through Christ; we’re born anew

We should recall from whence we’ve come

How much is yet to do?


Still countless lose Salvation’s share

Like flies our neighbours die

Like blind lost  fools they fall out there

Without them knowing why


Has Jesus’ blood not washed us clean?

Has Truth; not set us free?

Are we not Jesus’ chosen queen?

For all the world to see?


We’re born again we’re saved by grace

God’s chosen precious few!

Yet if we’ll see His holy face

We must be holy too


For this; one must live true to Christ

Encourage those still lost

Regardless what is sacrificed?

Regardless of the cost.....

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.
