Real Christian Love



Real Christian Love
© 2016 Tom D Blakely

A Christian should have love
Define love; learn it well.
Being pleasant and agreeable
Won’t warn lost souls of hell.
The world is far from God
And getting worse each day
Most take the devil’s well-worn path
For they don’t know God’s way.

We say, It’s not our fault
That many don’t know Christ
We’re loving and we’re welcoming
They just won’t come to church!
Perhaps cocooned in church
Things seem to us quite good
But has God’s truth been compromised
His love misunderstood?

As Christians – We’re the church!
If that means me and you
Then we should pray and read God’s word
To know what we must do.
If we are truly saved
Then we belong to Christ
Being pleasant and agreeable
Is not what Jesus asked!


Jesus said:
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
[John 14:15]
