'I Am A Disciple Of The Lord Jesus Christ - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry

Because I am a disciple of the LORD Jesus Christ,
composing inspirational Christian poetry
does take a second place in my life.
For whenever I forget to pray,
I need not wonder why I have a bad day.

That's is when I feel afraid.
I know a time is coming for
even a devote Christian
such as I am must die.

But one minute latter,
I will be in the presence,
of the eternal begotten Son
of God who rules and reigns
on high.

God compares believers dying
to merely 'falling asleep.'
It means my earthly body
only dies. I do not
fully understand why.

Both my soul and spirit are
eternal, and that is true
of any mortal.

Dying means facing the second death.
In the Lake of Fire and brimstone.

The sin of not believing in the
Lord Jesus Christ is what sends
people there. I am not trying
to scare any one. It is much better
to believe in God's Son!

Why would a loving God create a hell?
It never was created for men and women,
but for Satan and his fallen angels.
It was an active rebellion against
God and his faithful angels.

Therefore humans who are in active rebellion
against God will share their ultimate fate.
It is much better to accept his free gift
of pardon and mercy before it is too late

Others write much better poetry
than 'me' and have more faith.
But we face a similar fate.

Jesus Christ does love you
and paid the ultimate sacrifice.
He shed his precious blood on
Calvary's tree to set poor
condemned sinners free.

Those are just a few reasons
why I am a disciple of the
Lord Jesus Christ.
