Christian Poetry-By Greg Millhorn

INSTRUCT THE WISE

 

When we heed criticism

The wiser we become

Ignoring this true fact

Infringes on deaf and dumb

 

Be open to advice

Burdens are hard to bear

People risking your displeasure

But showing you they care

 

Enthusiasm for righteous living

Should be our desire

Burning in our hearts

Like never ending fire

 

Occupied with ourselves

Only fills our needs

Devotion to God and others

Brings us happiness indeed

 

Instruct the wise man

And the wiser he will be

Lead him to the Lord

And he’ll be wise and free

 

 

FEAR GOD

 

Men’s bitter hatred

Lust and greed

Feeds evil thinking

To satisfy it’s need

 

The human soul

Will force this test

Life with God

Or hell with the rest

 

What folly this is

When we do not see

That moment beyond the grave

Starts our eternity

 

When will men learn

Evil has no place

Except in hell fire

Relying on Man’s grace

 

People lift your eyes

Fear God and reverence Him

Be faithful in the Lord

And you He won’t condemn

 

 

SHORT TIME

 

As a burning candle

Is consumed by flame

So is Man’s soul

If rejecting Jesus’ name

 

Life is so short

When looking back to see

That young person there

Was really me

 

On our way to glory

Or the other place?

One brings us happiness

The other, suffering and disgrace

 

The gnashing of teeth

While burning in pain

Awaits all people

Covered in sin stain

 

The gift of God

Is eternal life

Away from all heartache

And bitter strife

 

 

NEVER GIVING AN INCH

 

The Lord kept this man

For his testimony I’m sure

Proving that through God

He’s able to endure

 

Stopping by to see me

Each and every day

Singing praise to the Lord

All along his way

 

He is touching many lives

While in such terrible pain

His sickness is spreading

Finally going to his brain

 

Never giving an inch

Just trusting in the Lord

Saying, the Lord will heal me

This body He’ll restore

 

The man walks by faith

And not by his sight

What an example for others

While walking in God’s light

 

 

SOUL WINNER FOR JESUS

 

May the Lord humble your heart

For all people in need

Help the lost to find Christ

For them we must intercede

 

Shed some tears for someone

And spend the day in prayer

Hell burns hot with sufferings

And it’s torments forever there

 

Stand in the gap for them

Fast and pray today

Be a witness for Jesus

Let nothing stand in your way

 

Have you sat so long in piety

Numbness affects your thought

Who leads you to know

By Christ’s blood you were bought

 

Be a soul winner for Jesus

Help save a life from hell

In Jesus there is victory

In us His Spirit dwells

 

 

TURN AWAY MY FRIENDS

 

One man’s loss

Is another man’s gain

That’s the way it works

In this world of pain

 

It’s mine all mine

Everything belongs to him

People want only riches

As far as the eye can see

 

Only thinking of themselves

Their minds full of greed

Doing wicked things

To satisfy their need

 

Never knowing the Lord

Or helping out a neighbor

Just only reaping sorrow

For the fruits of their labor

 

Turn away my friends

From this world of sin

Give your life to Jesus

And paradise you’ll enter in

 

 

THE TOY

 

Once there was a lad

Who made a special toy

He loved it very much

Giving him many hours of joy

 

One day while he was playing

He set the little boat down

When he finally came back

It was no where to be found

 

Later, passing a store window

And seeing what he had lost

He wanted the toy back

Regardless of the cost

 

Now you’re mine again

The lad was proud to say

I’ll never leave you anymore

And from me don’t sail away

 

People are like the boat

Sailing away from the Lord

The Creator bought us back

And wants our lives to be restored

 

 

SALT OF THE EARTH

 

The brilliance of God’s glory

Is there for all to see

The radiance of Lord Jesus

Reflects upon you and me

 

Brighter than any star

In the darkest night

The people of the Lord

Shine forth with His light

 

We are His body

With legs, arms and hands

Always wanting to help others

Just as the Lord commands

 

Loving God with all our hearts

And our neighbors too

Jesus is living in us

And there’s nothing we can’t do

 

The salt of the earth

With distinctive taste and savor

Are people doing God’s will

And never losing their flavor

 

 

A WISE MAN KNOWS BETTER

 

A wise man knows better

Than to seek changes he cannot control

But a foolish man runs blindly

To offer the world his eternal soul

 

God made man is His image

And gave him freedom of his will

Man worships creation and not the creator

And he is worse for it still

 

The Father gave us His Son

Accepting Him takes away our sin

This does not mean we sin no more

We try not to, because He abides within

 

If you look at how the wicked prosper

Things in this world are easy for them to do

They will gain the world, but miss the savior

God’s word on this is very true

 

God’s word never returns to Him void

It is always accepted by at least one

But there are many that reject it

And it’s been that way since man begun

 

 

MY BROTHER’S KEEPER

 

Am I my brother’s keeper, Lord?

You told me I should be

Why do I hurt my Brother

Then run and pray to thee

 

Do I hold his sin up

So all can see it, under his face

Or do I tell him about mine

Together praying in a silent place

 

The wicked can’t wait to see

The good fall by the way

Christians are under watchful eyes

We must renew faith everyday

 

I stand upon the word of God

And know it to be true

When you point your fingers at someone

There’s three pointing back at you

 

Jesus said, “Love God”

And your neighbor as yourself

Don’t be so quick to judge

Put condemnation on a shelf
