I Once Loved to Tell Others Of Jesus!
I once told others of Jesus!
As a young boy...
Witnessing for Christ,
Is what I enjoyed!
I told others of a time to repent...
I loved to talk about Jesus,
wherever I went!
As the years went by,
And I grew old.
The things of God, I had no longer told.
A coldness in my life, began to brew.
Even God’s word… I no longer knew.
I only talked about God to
people in the church.
In my heart, was a hunger
for a new search.
A search to return to Jesus! My lost love!
I fell on my knees! And cried to God above.
I began to confess, to God, everything!
A new love for him I knew he would bring.
I began to feel his love come all over me.
The chains were now gone! I was set free!
If a coldness for Jesus dwells in you.
Remember his love is faithful and true!
Please come to Jesus!
And be cleansed within!
And experience the joy of being born again!
