Has the Glory of God Left the Churc
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Has the Glory of God Left the Church?

Before the next church service gets started.

Should it read. On the door;

God's glory has departed.”

Many come to worship and don't even know.

That's God's glory left such

a long time ago.

Many build their Sunday experience

on “past traditions.”

Built on man-made rules and false expectations.”

They don't want to hear the gospel of holiness!

”It may offend.”

Their pastor no long preaches

on what the Bible says is sin.

Some have been going to

church for many years.

Still looking for teachers with “itching ears.”

Is the true presence of God

is no longer there?

It's no longer found in their

worship or prayer.

God's judgment shall begin at this very place.

It hasn't happened yet, because of

his unfailing grace.

If God's presence has been left from your life as well,

Remember his love for you will, never fail.

Seek his awesome presence each day you live!

He gave his son for you!

 What more could he give?

Won’t you see his glory this very hour?

And be renewed by his word

 and life-changing power!

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!
