If I, Would You?


If I tell you that
Christianity  has to nothing to do
With worldly prosperity
Would you still wan to be one

If I tell you that
The path is narrow
That leads to heaven
Would you still be interested

If I tell you
That to follow Jesus Christ
Means to deny yourself
To serve rather than to be served
Would you still
Have the ears to listen

If I tell you
That to be a Christian
You would be rejected
And forsaken by the people close to you
Because you offended them
For speaking the truth
Would you still keep the faith

If I tell you
That you would be beaten,
Spit on, curse upon, forsaken,
Jailed and even death
Would you still proclaim the gospel?

If I tell you that Christianity
Commands you to love your enemies
To bless those
Who curse you and pray for those
Who spitefully use you
Would you think that would be insane

And yet that’s what Christ exactly did
For every sinner
That includes you and I
And every living soul on earth

Now
Would you still
Want to be a
Christian?
