To Serve God Well

† † † To Serve God Well

Until the devilís final bow

Till deathís long planned demise

In hand; we need to take the plough

And silence childrenís cries

We need to serve within The Vine

Planted in Davidís Root ĖRev.22:16

Eat of The Lamb drink Heavenís Wine Ė Jn.6:53+Mt.9:16-17

And bear Salvation fruit ĖJn.15:2

The Lord has taught how cheeks can turn ĖMt.5:39

When disagreements reign

However much inside we burn

However much the pain ĖLk.23:34

Weíre called to serve The living Christ

Toil in The Masterís field

However much weíve sacrificed

However much we yield

Be overjoyed to serve as planned

Together work as one

Be not like houses built on sand

Or fail to get things done

Thereís still much work we need to do

While countless fail and stray

We must unite begin anew

Not split and walk away

The Truth will never bend the knee

Godís Word will stand and reign

Peter through Paul was made to see ĖGal.2:11-21

And brought to plough again

We canít be shy lifeís facts to tell

We canít refuse to fight

We canít let others go to hell

We need to spread The Light!..Ö

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.
