    Default Poem: If Jesus Came To Your House

    If Jesus Came to Your House

    If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two -
    If He came unexpectedly, I wonder what you'd do.
    Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,
    And all the food you'd serve to Him would be the very best,
    And you would keep assuring Him you're glad to have him there -
    That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.

    But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door
    With arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?
    Or would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
    Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they'd been?
    Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn't heard?
    And wish you hadn't uttered that last, loud, hasty word?

    Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
    Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?
    And I wonder - if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
    Would you go right on doing the things you always do?
    Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
    Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

    Would your family conversation keep up it's usual pace?
    And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?
    Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you read,
    And let Him know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?
    Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you'd planned to go?
    Or would you, maybe, change your plans for just a day or so?

    Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?
    Or would you hope they'd stay away until His visit ends?
    Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
    Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?
    It might be interesting to know the things that you would do
    If Jesus Christ in person came to spend some time with you.

    Lois Blanchard Eades
    Proverbs 3:5,6
    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.

    Thanks for sharing this poem. We should live our lives pleasing to him by our Christlike actions. Christians are known by their love & fruit in their lives. So let's live our lives the way Jesus wants us to. We are not saved by our good works, but our lives should show that we are who we claim to be. Janice
