How Many Aren't Ashamed of Jesus

How Many Aren’t Ashamed of Jesus Christ?



 



I heard a preacher preach



and proclaim;



"We need not be



 ashamed of Jesus' name!"



 



I asked him; "How many are afraid to witness?"



"How many will tell others about



Jesus before Christmas?"



 



"If we ask people how many



 proclaim Christ?" 



"What would they say?"



"Hello!"  "I'm a church member."



 "I hope you have a nice day!"



 



We need to memorize in our heads...



And not be ashamed of the words Christ said!



 



To the people who profess to be a Christian…



Is Christ their true love? 



Their prized possession?



 



If he is our true love…



Ne need to speak in boldness.



And seek a sacrificial way



 of living and holiness!



 



Sharing Christ must be our



 desire and ambition!



So others may receive much



needed spiritual nutrition.



 



Sharing Christ with others,



is what we're called to do!



The choice is yours!  It's up to YOU!

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!
