You Walked Away

The following was written that it might speak to certain individuals…

You walked away, though you were taught about
the name of Jesus, but it seems you’ve come to doubt.
I’ve tried to show you My love in every way,
but you’ve looked to other people and to whom and how they pray.

I can tell you this–that answers come from Me,
and fulfillment now and always is for those who I set free.
Sure hope that you’ll sense you’re missing being fed
from My Words in the Bible–they’re your daily bread.

Somehow you missed the truth that you must connect
by accepting My Gospel and its power to resurrect.
I remain Jesus Christ of Whom you’ve heard,
and it’s only by My name that salvation is assured.

Not only that, but through My loving sacrifice I won
the right to redeem you, to be a precious daughter or son.
So please head home–the time is very late.
The porch light’s still on, but don’t, please don’t wait.

P. A. Oltrogge

“Thomas said to Him, ‘Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.'” John 14:5-6

“…by the name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene…which became the very cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.” (From Acts 4:10-12)

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12 KJV

“For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” Romans 8:14-16

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.’” John 11:25

“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16

Except as noted, all scripture (NASB)
