Follow Them Up

Post  Fenny West on Sat 03 Oct 2009, 2:09 am

Follow them up
Before they are stopped;
Those that you reached
When Christ was preached.

Not sneaking up on them
Like a secrete police
Just be there as a friend
A friend in need
Who is the friend indeed
Like a helper, fellow-heir
Carer, mentor, not a tormentor
Iron to sharpen another iron
An encourager along the way
A Barnabas- a consoler
Not a controller
Challenge them
But donít force change on them
Leave that to the Unchanging Changer
Give them time to grow
Donít make them groan

Donít let them drop
Donítí let the stop
For too long
Encourage them to be strong
Tell them the goodies in store
Show them the pitfalls
Let them not fall
Off the back door.
Keep that door closed

It is a warfare
So letís keep at it
Satan does not take a day off
We too must not.

Let take the initiative
Like Isaiah did
And answer the call
The call is for all
Not just for the Pastor
Or the counsellor
Itís for all who will be available
Not for the qualified or able
It is for the accountable
Not wandering generalities.

Letís set them good examples-
Our lives being good samples
Sharing our testimonies
Experienced in our journey
Let Jesus be the focus
As we dine beneath the Cross.

Let's be patient with them
As not to uproot them
Even when they play hide and seek
Let us remain calm and meek
Even when they throw up on us
Let us focus on Jesus

Letís put up with their awkward questions
And their oft want of disputation
Letís handle well the unexpected wet pants
And when they yell and rant
Throwing temper tantrums
Even when we are trying to help them grow.
Letís see the end product that will be
And let this spur us to keep going
Letís handle the misunderstandings
When they refuse to part with the toys
Or cry when we want to change their nappies
The truth is we were all once like them if not worse.
Above all letís intercede for them
Talk to God about man
Before you talk to man about God.



36Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, "Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing." Acts15:36
35By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."John13:35
8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"
And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
Isa6:8
17Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.Phil3:17
39He also told them this parable: "Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.Luke6:39-40
11Command and teach these things. 12Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity..1Tim4:11-12
9Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols? 11So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.1Cor8:9-13
