If Jesus were a blogger,
I’m sure His stats would soar.
When folks read of His miracles
they’d want to come back for more.
There’s no doubt in my mind
that His followers, they’d become;
when they read how He could heal
the lame, blind, deaf and dumb.
His popularity would be off the charts,
at least in my estimation.
As they heard of the loaves and fishes,
He would be an instant sensation.
His fame would be astronomical,
spreading afar and near ;
As long as He constantly published
what the masses were wanting to hear.
But what if He wrote to His “followers”
that they needed to take up their cross?
Would folks still throng to His site
or would blog traffic suffer a loss?
What if He got specific,
and in writing, defined what was sin?
Would the groupies continue to follow,
or would the blog crowd start to thin?
Well, Jesus is not a blogger,
but He has given us His Word
While some cling to it tenaciously,
others think it outdated, absurd.
Some thrill to read of the miracles;
the blessings on earth and above,
The wonders of His creation,
His mercy, His grace, His love.
Don’t tell them of expectations.
To serve God, there’s a price to pay.
It doesn’t please their ears.
From sound doctrine, they turn away.
But God’s Word is not a smorgasbord.
There is no take it or leave it.
It’s inspired, profitable, all of it.
So obey it and believe it.
It may not be the popular thing,
what majorities want to pursue.
The Holy Bible, will you wholly follow?
The choice is up to you.
