Poem: Better Than A Sermon

When each of us, reach another,
a soul can be eternally saved;
the path has been laid out and
you must be courageously brave!

Are you willing to die to self?
Can you access the mind of Christ?
Do others see that you live for Him?
Do you have… His everlasting Life?

Better than a sermon on your lips,
is a contented spirit of humility;
in Life's brokenness, you can shine
with His Light and vulnerability.

Christianity isn't for wimpy souls;
many have died, having been martyred.
Become born-again on this very day;
Faith with Christ, can't be bartered.
