A Pastor Who Preached against Sin
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

A Pastor Who Preached Against Sin…


A pastor who preached against sin, was pulled down…

And very soon, his whole world was “upside down!”


The sin he preached against, was causing him grief.

He sought prayer and counseling, with little relief.


How could this happen to him?  Many wondered.

As his very life begin being “pulled asunder.”


The victory he wanted, seemed to be fading away.

He was almost at a loss, for the “right” words to say.


Many just laughed and teased and made fun of him.

He lost his friends.  No one wanted to be with him!


Just about everything he loved, was now all gone.

He asked others; “please forgive me of my wrongs.”


As he stumbled each day, he fell down in disgrace.

You could see the discouraged look, on his face!


As the weeks went by, and feeling all alone…

He asked God to forgive him, and bring him “home.”


He sinned...  But confessed and God forgave him!

The victory he needed is what Jesus gave him!


We must be careful!  Because we can also fall!

A humble way of Godly living must be our call!


Be watchful of the many sins that can enslave us!

God knows all about it!  It was he, who made us!


Thank you Jesus for the kind of life you’ve given!

And may you be honored in the way we’re livin’!

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.
