Preparation For God's Day

God calls all his elect
To worship Him on His day
So we need to prepare ourselves
For this act come what may

We all have different ways
That this can be achieved
But we must come with humble hearts
For this to be believed

Praise and prayer is a good start
Also understanding God's word is a must
But reverence for almighty God
Does bring us to obey and trust

Finally the object of all this
Is that the Lord would appear
On His appointed holy day
So His will to us be absolutely clear

    In a nutshell, this poem portrays our real purpose on this earth-- preparing ourselves and others for His second coming. I also write a lot of Christain poetry, and find that God is glorified-- these are the ones that come easiest to me. Read my poem "The Greatest Battle Ever Fought"--

    thanks Kim, good to hear from you, yes I will check out your poem you mentioned. That's very interesting that you made the point of preparation for the second coming, is the purpose of the write, I'll have to be honest it was written to look to prepare for each Sunday preparing to meet God in worship but again you are right it can made to think on the Lords final return for us his own. Well have a blessed day, Gordon

    amen , the Lord shall appear unto the broken hearted and contrite spirit, today is the time at hand, the spirit or kingdom poured upon believers, God bless you
