Let’s Preach Jesus!


Many in church are walking

 in a spirit of fear.

They preach what the world

wants to hear.


In their “magical quest to

not be judgmental.”

IN God’s kingdom, they’re not

very instrumental.


They only want to preach on God’s

love but not hell.

To many, this doesn’t seem

“to sit very well.”


They don’t want to preach on being


God forbid, they should lose all

 of their “friends”


They’d rather just have people give

 their 10 percent.

Than preach on salvation and a

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!
