A Disciple Of Christ

Poem By Bob Gotti

When you cleave onto God’s Word, the Truth of God that you heard,
And choose to follow Jesus Christ, allowing God’s Word into your life,
You then become a disciple of, The Lord and Savior and God above.
Only in Christ, are men truly free, with a freedom that spans Eternity.
It is a freedom which begins inside, when in Jesus Christ you abide.

In God’s Word is revealed proof, that Jesus Christ is the Living Truth.
Knowing this Truth sets men free; that is sinful men like you and me,
From the bondage we’re now in, the hidden bondage that we call sin.
As this Truth you’ve come to know, within your heart begins to grow,
You dear friend indeed will find, frees both your heart and your mind.

You will know just why Christ came, and endured the cross of shame,
With The Truth you can reason why, our Lord Jesus Christ had to die.
Friend, every heart that Christ frees, The Lord above fills with peace,
And His Truth supplies the Light, to lead you out of the darkest night.
Because this Truth is The Light, it’s the only way that’s eternally right.

The Way, the Truth and Life is but one, Jesus Christ, God’s Only Son.
This Truth my friend is Jesus Christ, Truth which leads to Eternal Life.
That is why only Christ can say; He is The Truth, The Light and Way.
Today embrace The Word of God; Truth will guide the path you trod,
Make His Word a part of your life, and you will be a disciple of Christ.

Great piece of heavenly inspired poetry. Best wishes, melvin
A true disciple of Christ are you and you spread his message so beautifully with these words you write...thanks for sharing!
Hey Bob, you know those marquee-type signs that small businesses have? You know, the ones where you can change the letters around and they usually say things like, “Try our new taco salad, ” (even though the taco salad probably isn’t all that “new” anymore) . Sometimes the signs are on little trailers and have big arrows and flashing lights. In times of national tragedy, the business owners sometimes express themselves with witty, personalized messages like “God Bless America” or “Support Our Troops.” Anyway, I’m thinking of putting one of those signs in my front yard, with the big arrow and flashing lights, and it will say, “Jesus is ignoring the guy who lives here.” I figure it might humiliate Jesus enough that it shakes him out of his lackadaisical stupor towards me and he’ll realize he’s got one hell of a backlog of unanswered prayers from me. Now, as soon as he utters one word to me or shepherds me around a little bit like the bible advertises, I promise I’ll take the sign down, or maybe I’ll just rearrange the letters to say, “Jesus spoke to me. His English is actually pretty good, but I couldn’t understand everything he said because of his heavy Aramaic accent.”

A Heavy Heart

There’s a heaviness upon my heart, at times it seems to not depart.
But Christ who lives within my heart, will never leave me nor depart.
I need to focus more upon The Lord, for by Him I am never ignored.
I need to seek His lasting peace, a peace I known will never cease.

Not Peace But A Sword

On the scene came Christ The Lord, not with peace but with a sword.
The sword was The Word of Truth, and to many it became a reproof.
To many hearts Truth would come, to acknowledge God’s Only Son.
But many just wouldn’t believe, and The Truth they would not receive.

A Cord Of Three Strands

I have one lovely woman in my life, but we have a marriage of three.
The life long bond of our marriage is my wife, Jesus Christ, and me.

This is not simply a well known cliché, a phrase, or a simple token,

A True Blessed Hope

Christ is indeed for us my friend, our true Blessed Hope for the end,
He is our Blessed Hope my friend, in that we will see a brighter end.
This Hope is something we can’t see, that we can know is sure to be.
And this hope is for all who come, to a living faith in God’s Only Son.

Someone You Can Trust

God is Faithful and God is Just, God is someone you can trust.
When in a trial simply be still, as God works out His Perfect Will.
He is God and from the start, He’s working to prepare your heart.
When you are tried, you will see, God is molding you for Eternity.

A Tree's Fruit

Good fruit or bad fruit, a tree can only bear one,
This parable was taught by God's one and only Son.

First mentioned by John as a warning for the Pharisees to heed,
