What Is God Worth?.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson

††† †What Is God Worth?.....

Are you on The Way to life above?

Do you seek to flee the grave?

Would you leave behind all you love?

Your wicked soul to save

Would you come to God with all your heart?

Serve Jesus Christ His Son?

Would of your best The Lord impart?

And see your battles won?

Do you spare Jesus some time and space?

Do you share your wealth in love?

Is in your heart reserved a place?

For The Promise made above

Sharing with Him your deepest thought?

Your doubts and secret fears?

Do you share the world Christís true report?

Do you share her childrenís tears?

Would you share neighbours time and purse?

Reveal your Christian view?

While blessing who your name would curse?

Be pleased in what you do?

Is Heavenís will upon your mind?

Do you seek to bear good fruit?

Or do you walk as though youíre blind?

Around your neighbours mute

Is the lamb you offer Heaven lame?

The gold youíll give unclean?

Lifeís putrid fruit festooned in shame

Worthy of Jesusí queen

Just ask yourself could this be you?

Is this your heartís desire?

Will God embrace your present view?

Or will it end in fire?.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
