God is GOOD!
Have You Heard?
By: Maxine M.

Have YOU ever encountered JESUS somewhere along life’s busy road?
Perhaps you think about the Baby born in the manger of a livestock abode
Often this Story is lost as the rush of Christmas starts to unload

If you are attending church, you may occasionally hear His name
With today’s “watered down” Gospel, most times its only “church rules” they proclaim
Whereas standing up for Jesus’ Saving Sacrifice seems no longer their aim

They advance peace and love, promote rituals & a prewritten prayer
Sing about the joy of Heaven, but no FURTHER conversion…Jesus’ death and Resurrection
They desire to leave the Congregation feeling GOOD, not under conviction or learn how to prepare

Is it possible you’ve heard ABOUT Jesus, maybe from an elderly family member long ago?
Maybe they said how He was the Good Shepherd, love for His sheep show
Protecting those in His care, lifting up the weak & vulnerable, providing their need here below

But in these modern times we simply look for a Government program for a handout
Never learning what God’s plan for your Salvation is truly all about
Without acknowledging the need for OR depending on the Shepherd on Whom we can always count

Many people have a less than ideal childhood, the value of faith & family never shown
Thinking they only have themselves to rely on, without precious memories to lean on when grown
But always handling life on their own brings feelings of being isolated and alone

It’s never too late to meet Jesus though, learn of His love, let Him be your guide
Experience His Mercy & Grace, comfort you for all those tears you’ve cried
He will grant Salvation to all who COME to Him…none sincere will be denied

A famous preacher was coming to town, a friend invited you to come along
The meeting started praising this Jesus in loud, hearty & robust song
Scripture was read, testimonies given, then the Pastor spoke in a voice firm & strong

He told how God’s plan was to send His Son Jesus to pay OUR sin debt
That ALL souls have sinned, but only by Jesus’ Holy Blood, full payment could be met
How Jesus was crucified, DIED & ROSE AGAIN, will return on the day the Father has set

But anyone can be called into His presence at any time (check the news)
Accidents, heart attacks, tons of concrete falling on you as you sleep…a sense of security you’ll lose
We can be prepared by trusting Jesus, depending on the road ahead you choose

So now you’ve heard His name, but are you really ready to meet Him face to face?
In HUMILITY, fallen on your knees and accepted for YOURSELF this Gift of Salvation & Grace?
Heard a whispered “Welcome Home My child”, felt that longed for embrace?


Now we all have a predetermined destiny when we take that last breath one day
After that every soul will be judged, their eternal fate God will convey
2 Corinthians 5:10 says Christians will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, even those who have come to obey

Not to be condemned, since you’ve been BORN AGAIN, but for rewards to decide
The good things you’ve accomplished, done for the Lord, without personal pride
The prospect of this encounter with Jesus will help you want to, in His Grace, abide

Now in a Heavenly Courtroom, all UNBELIEVERS will meet Jesus as JUDGE one day
They denied His Authority and Lordship, even His existence…never knelt to pray
No defense will be offered, no excuses or passing the blame, only guilt and shame on display

When God’s Book of Life is opened, ALL names that are NOT written there
Will be swiftly sentenced to join Satan in the Lake of Fire, eternal punishment bare
Forever banished from God’s presence, Light gone; to solitary darkness you are heir

So please meet Jesus as Loving Savior today, it’s very scary to wait!
In His Holy Word the Way of Salvation is clearly laid out…true & straight
If you delay and confront Him as JUDGE, it’s definitely TOO LATE!
