A Disciple Of Christ - Poem by Bob Gotti

When you cleave onto God’s Word, the Truth of God that you heard,
And choose to follow Jesus Christ, allowing God’s Word into your life,
You then become a disciple of, The Lord and Savior and God above.
Only in Christ, are men truly free, with a freedom that spans Eternity.
It is a freedom which begins inside, when in Jesus Christ you abide.

In God’s Word is revealed proof, that Jesus Christ is the Living Truth.
Knowing this Truth sets men free; that is sinful men like you and me,
From the bondage we’re now in, the hidden bondage that we call sin.
As this Truth you’ve come to know, within your heart begins to grow,
You dear friend indeed will find, frees both your heart and your mind.

You will know just why Christ came, and endured the cross of shame,
With The Truth you can reason why, our Lord Jesus Christ had to die.
Friend, every heart that Christ frees, The Lord above fills with peace,
And His Truth supplies the Light, to lead you out of the darkest night.
Because this Truth is The Light, it’s the only way that’s eternally right.

The Way, the Truth and Life is but one, Jesus Christ, God’s Only Son.
This Truth my friend is Jesus Christ, Truth which leads to Eternal Life.
That is why only Christ can say; He is The Truth, The Light and Way.
Today embrace The Word of God; Truth will guide the path you trod,
Make His Word a part of your life, and you will be a disciple of Christ.

    Hey Bob, you know those marquee-type signs that small businesses have? You know, the ones where you can change the letters around and they usually say things like, “Try our new taco salad, ” (even though the taco salad probably isn’t all that “new” anymore) . Sometimes the signs are on little trailers and have big arrows and flashing lights. In times of national tragedy, the business owners sometimes express themselves with witty, personalized messages like “God Bless America” or “Support Our Troops.” Anyway, I’m thinking of putting one of those signs in my front yard, with the big arrow and flashing lights, and it will say, “Jesus is ignoring the guy who lives here.” I figure it might humiliate Jesus enough that it shakes him out of his lackadaisical stupor towards me and he’ll realize he’s got one hell of a backlog of unanswered prayers from me. Now, as soon as he utters one word to me or shepherds me around a little bit like the bible advertises, I promise I’ll take the sign down, or maybe I’ll just rearrange the letters to say, “Jesus spoke to me. His English is actually pretty good, but I couldn’t understand everything he said because of his heavy Aramaic accent.” (Report) Reply
