The Bible's bitter truth



The bible's bitter truth
Can be a hard pill to swallow for many.
How often is bitter medication resisted,
Yet so highly praised for its sweet cure.
It is better that a preacher get on our toes,
Than to be tickling our ears with excitement.
It may appear that we are being attacked personally,
but in reality, you are being helped
It is the sin that is within us
That is being attacked for real.
We are all in need of someone
Who cares enough for our soul,
To speak the truth to us, bitter it may be
In the name of the Lord with no dilution
The best friend to our soul is the preacher or teacher
Who will take the risk of becoming our enemy,
By telling us the truth of God.
Let us find the courage to hear the truth,
And the willingness to change to it;
For the bible's bitter truth
Is sweet reward to our soul.
TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY

Roland 'KingShip' Ediare

I'm a man sold-out to The God of JesusChrist...I preach Him in & out of Season...-I I love life, laughter and being myself...I'm "BRASH"; usually not a 'respecter of persons'...I practically speak things as they are with a pragmatic intent. ...And I'm usually Very PASSIONATE about whatever I speak or do...lol ...Regarding my poetry: I usually put on a character and a subject that I'm passionate about...It brings me close to deliver my passion as the real characters would feel...As close as I can get if the 'subject' was me....someday 'Beyond the Sky' will be my reach. "Deo Volente!...Please Enjoy my poems, most of them are quite deep; so when you read try to get outside 'The Box'; because ...I write from outside the box...And Remain Blessed. Then before you rate Google the meaning of unknown word, you do not know it all...How do you fault what you do not understand...the burden of understanding is never on the giver of information, but on the recipient...Anyway thanks. more…
