Can God Find a Righteous Man
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Can God Find A Righteous Man Like Noah?


After creation, there became much evil throughout the lands!

God decided to begin a search for just one righteous man!


Out of the many people scattered throughout the earth…

There was only one that met the criteria for God’s search!


Noah was the only righteous man that God could find!

Other than Noah’s family, there was a destruction of mankind!


God’s judgment was coming, as the many storm clouds appeared!

Very soon, every living thing was flooded and disappeared!


Because of the righteousness of Noah, mankind is here today!

Wherever sin and wickedness abounds...  God always makes a way!


If God began a search, would he find any that are righteous?

There are many that attend churches,

 but they must be cautious!


Living righteous for God doesn’t count for

 the church you’re attending!

You can try to fool others...  But with God,

there’s no pretending!


You’re either living a righteous life, or living a life of lies…

You either love the truth of God’s word.  Or his word, you despise!


May the kind of life Noah lived be a challenge to me and you!

God gave us his son to die for us.  What are we going to do?


Through the shed blood of Jesus, we can have righteous living!

May we be encouraged to do this, from a heart of thanksgiving!


Won’t you “get on board,” the ark of safety?  Why there’s still time?

You need to decide!  The wrath of God

will soon reach mankind!


God will reward anyone who reaches out to seek him!

Won’t you open up your heart?  And receive him?


 The loving and righteous Jesus is he!

He’s coming back soon!  And gives life for eternity!

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!
