 CHRISTIAN POEMS

PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH






A "Warm-N-Cozy" Greeting




Don't teach; don't preach
The Gospel news
If you don't live it out
Don't go; don't sow
You will confuse
The sinners who will doubt
If it is true
They look at you
Your life it is a lie
You preach in vain
No souls will gain
And this the reason why

They hear; they sneer
And then mock
The things they see you do
They gloat; they note
And take stock
No Christ they see in you
You bear His name
But bring shame
By things you say and do
Not at the Book
Will sinners look
But the Bible they read is you

You pray; you say
That the light
Shines through you from Him
You won't; you don't
Illuminate the night
Through you the light is dim
Your life is seen
Live it clean
Bring honour to the Master
Don't bring shame
To His name
Your witness will be disaster

You spout; you shout
It is true
Sinners must be born again
You stress; you press
They say no
Your witness is poor to them
Oh don't bring doubt
Live it out
The Christian life you claim
And now begin
To sinners win
By honouring His holy name
