Life is His

Since life is a possession

only God understands,

And life has been given us

from out of His hands,

And He who has all knowledge

of us in the flesh

Gives us our needs

and all of the rest,

Why can't we give Him back

our all-in-all best?

After all, our best is His already.

- Gary L. Grizzell

Sharing Christ

by: Serena Voss

"Lead me to some soul today" we sang

And all week long that message rang.

Inside my head and heart, I prayed

"Lord who can I reach for you today?"

Just at that moment my neighbor walked by

And I said to myself, "Okay, I'll try.

But, first I need time to study and rehearse,

 

Then armed with my proof texts and Bible outlines,

I approached her to study and she said, "That's fine."

The verses poured out in a steady stream,

'Doctrinal Purity' was my theme.

Besides, many claim to follow Christ

But they do it man's way, thinking that will suffice.

Well, after the session was nearly through,

I said, "Have you questions?" She said, "Just a few.

It's obvious you know your Bible quite well,

You've talked about Heaven and touched on Hell.

You've even shown proofs that the Bible is true,

But you've not yet told me what Christ means to you.

How is your life different? How do you cope?

Is there any real joy or any real hope?"

I stared at my outlines, then put them away.

And I changed and shared gently the Man called 'The Way.'

As that simple old story began to shine through,

My friend came to Jesus, not the what, but the Who.
