Do You Show Christ?

by Jason Kirk Bartley

Do you show Christ,
simple and sweet?
Do you Show Christ to everyone you meet?
Do you make them want to bow at our Savior’s feet?
Or does your countenance with hate
push them away?
Are you sharp-tongued in what you say?
Does a burden for lost souls weigh heavy on your heart?
Or do you not worry about them?
Maybe you should start.
But the love of many has grown so cold,
Christians should stand up and be very bold.
‘Cause if they see Jesus,
they’ll want that love, joy, and peace.
Many will lay at our Savior’s feet.
Darkness abounds and many grope trying to find,
Jesus who can heal us, but many are blind.
Blind to His love, and blind to His way,
Some will come to you and gladly say, "I’ve accepted your Lord, and He has made me a way."
There’s always those scoffers who do not believe,
sinking into sin,
they’re not ready to receive.
Be Jesus’s hands, and His arms, and His feet,
reach out to knock on their heart’s door,
allow them the chance to be made complete.
