3 Poems of Faith, The Bible and Life in General

Timothy is a writer and artist who enjoys writing poetry, stories and articles. Timothy earned his BS in psychology from Albright College

Faith is important to understanding the Bible because without the lens of faith it is hard to get a clear picture of what the Bible is all about. It is only through the lens of faith that you can the truth in God’s Word.

Jesus says in John 8:31-32, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

The three poems I wrote are inspired by different Bible verses but all have the same goal to show you the importance of the Bible, faith and how it translates into your life.

The Bible says, “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:43-45).“

Jesus words in Matthew are truly radical. Love you enemies. It is hard enough loving your friends and family. Here is a poem based on being a true radical and loving all. Jesus asked for forgiveness from God on the cross. How can Christians today do anything but the same, ask for forgiveness for their enemies.

I’m called radical because

Of what I believe

Truth is I’m only sharing

That which I received


My life is totally changed

Dare I say even made anew

From giving my heart to the

One who speaks the truth


Radical, radical

Call me a radical

Because I don’t conform

To what they say


Jesus came some time ago

The give us a second chance

To turn from our former ways

To dance a whole new dance


It is to him I give my life

He has set my heart free

From all of my former ways

To give my life new meaning

And more love filled days


Radical, radical

Call me a radical

Because I don’t conform

To what they say


If for this I’m called a radical

Well them it is the truth

Call me names, spit in my face

because of what I say and do

I am a radical, a radical


My life is now filled with peace

As I seek to help my fellow man

Seeking, sharing in my daily walk

The truth wherever, whenever I can

“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Matthew 6:26. Jesus states In no uncertain terms how important everyone is to God. This poem is based on Matthew 6:26.

For whom do you matter?

To the birds the tress the plants

Do You Matter to the

To the bees, the snake the ants

No you matter not to them


For whom do you matter?

To the dogs, the cats, the fowl

Do you matter to the

The Hippo, the lion, the owl

No you matter not to them


For whom do you matter?

To the strangers your meet

Do you matter to the

People walking the street

No you matter not to them


For whom do you matter?

When man turns their head

For whom do you matter?

When you feel so miss-lead


For who do you matter?

Your Matter to God

That’s who

“If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness” Romans 8:10

Jesus and Paul both preached about the importance of having a changed heart in order to have a changed life. This poem is about a person being a “Dead Man Walking” because their heart is not in the right place.

Dead man walking

You don’t even know

The path you walk

Goes to the grave bellow


Dead man walking

Open your eyes to the One

Who can bring

The dead back to life


Bringing the dead to life

Bringing the dead to life

Come to the one

Who brings the dead to life


Dead man walking

Can’t you even see

The path you walk

Will never set you free


Bringing the dead to life

Bringing the dead to life

Come to the one

Who brings the dead to life

The three poems were written from a faithful heart. I hope these poems were both and encouragement and help. I love to wrote poetry some of it at times is humorous, serious but most of the times faith based.

i pick a verse in the Bible and try to get to the root of the verse by writing a poem. It is how I study the Bible. It also helps me to remember what I've read. I hope enjoyed these poems. I look forward to writing more.
