If Christ Came To Church

by Jason Kirk Bartley

If Christ came to your church,
would He really be welcome there?
Or would He be seated by Himself in an
isolated chair?
Or would you exalt His name through worship and praise,
Letting all know how He’s there and how He’s changed your ways,
how He’s in everything you do,
How would you react if Christ really came to worship with you?
Would you place Him first even above your Pastor,
letting Jesus know He’s your only Master?
Would every song be sung to the glory of God,
or would He find you singing to get men applaud?
Would your Pastor preach straight from the “Good Book,” or would he tickle ears with his proud look?
Would Christ be the center of every debate,
or would chaos result from people treating each other with hate?
Would people at the end of the sermon line the altar in despair,
repenting to God how they’ve faltered here and there?
Or would He leave sadly shaking His head, and praying for their sin,
If Christ came to worship, would you welcome Him there again?
