Good News

This is the poem God gave me for the Christmas card calandar a couple of years ago. I think you’ll agree that it is much better. It was the first time, I think, I had specifically asked God for a poem for a specific purpose. I asked for an evangelistic poem to put atop my calendar. It came to me so quickly I could hardly write it down. I was frantically scribbling it on scratch paper at work. God does awesome work and is still a great Creator!

Good News

About 2000 years ago
In little Bethlehem,
A tiny Baby Boy was born
Who was the great I Am.
He came to save the world from sin
And bring it into line
With what had been the Father’s will
Since He had started time.
For sinners such as we all are
Cannot come to His heart
And that’s why Jesus, God’s true Son,
Came down to take our part.
He took the punishment for us
And died to make a way
For us to find our way to God
And heaven some fine day.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
