The Preacher

Our church had a guest speaker who spoke on Jesusí washing of His disciples feet. (John Chapter 13) After service, I went home pondering the message.

The Preacher


Today, I heard the preacher say
To give yourself- your life away
And pondering his spoken word,
At first, his point seemed quite absurd.

But listening more, all fraught with dread,
To hear again, the things he said.
It came so clear, clear as a bell,
A servantís heart described so well.

A towel around my waist I need,
To serve my fellow man, indeed
A towel that no one else must see,
A covenant, between my God and me.

Today I heard the preacher say
You have to give your life away,
Not just to hear about the call,
But to submit, and give it all.

He said if I would live this way,
Iíd be like Christ, more every day.
I think, Iíd like so much to be,
More like that Man on Calvary.

So, I will hold tight onto my towel,
And serve my fellow man somehow,
Because I heard the Preacher say,
You have to give your life away.
