I Went to Chuch Last Sunday!

I Went to Church Last Sunday…


I went to church last Sunday, and heard a lesson…

I felt like I was almost in a “delicatessen.”


A “menu” was served, with a “meal” given.

And a “pep talk’” on “how good we’re livin’!


We were asked to shake a hand, “and meet a friend.”

“But don’t say anything that may offend!”


Our comfort was sought after, with “love” in mind!

We were taught to be “considerate and kind!”


We sang a few songs, and raised a few hands…

And got up and down, all through the stands!


A pastor spoke a message, he wanted to be taught.

A “feel good” message is what he sought!


How many “feel good” messages do we need?

In what direction does this church want to lead?


Is it one that doesn’t have a fear of God,

 from within?

Is this a place where one

can find freedom from sin???


We need more than a Sunday lesson,

 to change this nation!

We need God’s power!  With Holy Ghost conviction!


We need pastors that are on fire, with a passion and zeal!

And they believe that Christ’ coming is very real!


May there be a new focus, of Christ’s death on the cross!

And much more emphasis on reaching the lost!


Going to church On Sunday, doesn’t mean a thing…

If living 100 percent for Jesus, doesn’t mean anything!


May your church on Sunday be stirred from above!

And be filled with God’s power,

his holiness and love!!!

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!
