How Much Time Do We Have Left?

This poem is another in a series of poems and prose that focuses on the need for zeal and urgency in evangelism. Also see: Really Believed ; Witness to Our Enemies ; Fear of Failure/Rejection ; and I Am Prepared to Die.

How much time do we have left?
The end is coming, step by step.
And while Jesus is praying, will we have slept,
And left many souls of salvation bereft?

They hang on the cliff, as we hide in God's cleft,
By God's pleasure, they've not fallen to the depths
Of hell, but rather, by Him have been kept,
On the edge, but not rightfully judged quite yet.

Will we stand here and watch them fall?
God will let their grip slip, and that will be all.
Will we deafly ignore the call?
And be chastised that we "dropped the ball"?

Let's pray we will not, let's pray period,
So that some might be saved and raised from the dead.
