    This is the reason Jesus came to Earth. He came for you, to die in your place for all the sins in your life, which separate you from God, The Father.

    This is the gospel message. It is the good news.

    The good news is God has never stopped loving you.

    My dearest child, I long for you
    and wait here by this narrow gate.
    Each day seems like a thousand, too.
    Who tarries farthest from my view
    as darkness falls? I hesitate.

    “Dear Father, come in from the cold,
    The hearth is warming with a fire.”

    “Just five more minutes,” we are told.
    “Prepare a feast on plates of gold.
    One special guest is My desire.”

    Who could this be, this wondrous guest?
    Who draws our Master’s patient eye
    in endless hours without a rest?
    In truth, He seeks the very best.
    Though all are called, so few come by.

    What draws the favor of our King
    as each day we renew this task?
    The choicest foods and wines we bring,
    for He has thought of everything.
    All waits for you, if you would ask.

    The invitation God has sent.
    He sent Himself on humbled knees.
    His costly ransom, Christ, was spent
    through sacrifice, paid in full vent.
    God’s promise to the least of these.

    Where is my dearest Shepherd now?
    Why stands and waits he over there,
    while I lie crippled, frightened here
    by the liar's vicious, biting snare?

    How long my Lord shall I still wait
    and sound this bleating, anguished cry?
    Will you still carry Blacksheep back
    and see him through the narrow gate?

    Dear Father, hear me from the night
    as I must still in truth proclaim,
    "There is none other but your Holy Name!"
    But darkness blinds my narrow sight...

    On my own I cannot make it there.
    Come Shepherd, free me from the snare.

      I was really touched by this poem. Your words were well expressed. God is indeed patient and loving. Something we could all learn from ourselves. Very well written. Inspiring and thought provoking. Thanks for sharing your faith with all of us here at Elite.
    I'm only a beginner in poetry writing, so I won't attempt any critque, though it seems none is needed .

    Take Care!

      Many are called, but few are chosen. This indeed is a well written poem, in meaning as well as in form. You've done a nice job here without being preachy. Something for us all to think about in preparation of Easter.

      I liked this one. God is just too much at times for most people to understand...especially the loving and patient part. In todays world of "give me, give me...now"...true love which He gives to us, his children, has been corrupted through its many interpretations that we have created. Very well done...

      This is an instant fav. and I'm surprised this has not gained more comments!

    How easy it is for Him to love us and how hard it is for some to accept Him...*shakes head*

    Thank you for sharing...

      As a Christian I review this poem and find it scriptiually sound and you approved! Fantastically executed even in the "wordly sense". My spirit was ministered to by this poetic truths. This poem has a annointed touch. " One special guest is My desire.” means you me and all who choose! Bravo!
