HOW MUCH LONGER? (POEM)

This poem states some important facts and asks crucial questions arising from them. Answer the questions for yourself if they apply to you remembering what the Lord Jesus says in Revelation 3:20 (KJV),
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Do the needful today and be blessed in Jesus’ name.

    God, if only you will spare from this adulterous and sinful generation, I still love you, Lord

    God is the savior, the only solution to our problem

  • I know that God is knocking on my door and I want to let him in but sin gets in the way, God please give me strength to open that door, you are welcome, my heart is your home and my body is your temple

    The soul is willing but the flesh is weak but with the help of God we will overcome, thanks for sharing Ma

  • Ozoguejiofor Uche Jacinta

    This is a poem with a call to repentance. God gives chance but it sure runs out and I pray we all repent before it is too late.

  • ohakwe oluchi judith

    so many times you have called and so many times we have rejected you…God forgives for taking your love for granted and give us the grace to answer when you call..

  • udeh blessing

    He is too merciful that we take him for granted. God called David a man after his heart because he does not go back to his sins. i pray his infinite mercy will continue to rest on us and may he be compassionate on us. thanks ma for reminding us of his graciousness

  • Chidinma Obasi

    What then shall I say, shall I continue in sin that grace abound? Please father may you not go far from me and may the lion in you never overtake the dove in you.

  • Agwu Tochukwu Frank

    Many have answered rightly and I too. But the violent passions of the flesh and of the world is too tremendous. God’s grace for us. God’s grace, that we may not fall back. I will ever day “hold my hand, Jesus”.

  • Bessong Faith Ada

    Hmm! It’s indeed a very crucial question. Father have mercy on us. we need more of you, your grace, and the strength to serve you for the rest of our lives.

  • Anyalewechi Chinaza

    We are now in the era of grace.let us not misuse this grace of God because a time will come when grace will be no more.

  • judith

    We have grace in abundance, its ever sufficient for us but misusing it is totally wrong, the earlier we realize the better it is for us.

  • Okoilu olawole ebenezer

    There is nothing more painful than having a map but yet going the wrong way. Grace is sufficient but shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?? Of course not! All we need is just wisdom and a willing spirit. God help us all.

  • Igbokwe ugochi onyedikachi

    Beautifully written,couldn’t help the tears that came later. Aunty Edith you’re just the best spiritual tutor ever.

  • Kat

    Oh! This poem gives me the shivers. Could Christ really be asking this question?. Is that how much we have spurned his love?. I never pray a day will come when he gets fed up with our nonchalance and disobedience. Good people of God, it’s time to realize we nail Jesus to the cross all over again each time we sin. I know it’s difficult but let’s try. Let’s try to do the right thing by Christ, now that his mercy still flows freely. May Christ have pity on us and forgive us our sins, Amen

  • Onyeka Stanley

    Even while we’re yet sinners, Christ came and died for us. It’s left for us to acknowledge that he died for us and live a life pleasing to his eyes. His grace is sufficient for us to live that life. God bless you ma’am for this poem.

  • Oshana Oyaku Endurance

    “How much longer am I going to keep God waiting”. Lord am sorry, am sorry for making go through pain over and over. Thank you very much ma, this post just pierced a stony heart.

  • Eze martins Tochukwu

    My lord Jesus I understand the beautiful thing you did for me and also the suffering you undergo for my sake, it is always a great longing in my heart to serve and worship you and to show how deeply I appreciate but the devil keep pulling me down, but one thing I know is that I will win the devil with your word in the Bible and your grace lord because your grace is sufficient for me.
