The Man Named Jesus

Sometimes when the road gets short
and your body becomes weary
It seems difficult to keep your eyes open
There is someone who will carry you
Have you met the man named Jesus?

Not the man of churches
He's not waiting to rain down fire
He wishes to embrace you in his arms
Forgiveness and rest are his to give
Have you met this man named Jesus?

Your burdens may be heavy
There is no reason to carry them alone
You can give them all to him
He's a God of flesh and bone
Have you met the man named Jesus

Have you accepted the gift that he offers?
Fully paid through his great sacrifice
Not a religion a relationship
He will never let you down
He is the man named Jesus

He knows everything about you
He accepts you as you are
It's not about being good enough
He patiently waits at your door
Respond to the gentle knocking
You won't be alone anymore


Religion teaches us we have to earn our way to heaven.
God knows this is an impossible task for us humans. I am 
thankful that Jesus paid the price for our salvation and I accept 
his amazing gift. Have you met the Man names Jesus?

    I've been invited to his banquet table, I've tasted from his feast; Amazing grace courses through my veins, He loved me when I deserved the least!

    Perhaps that is why we feel connected, we have the same Brother and Father.

    A very intriguing poem. It starts out like a wonderful typical Jesus Poem with biblical form and lovely Jesus composition, but then it turns to a diatribe about the wants that have been perpetrated in his name. A surprising turn and very true. Well written and deserves a 7+
