Ancient Verse Every Christian Should Read And Think About.........

Ancient Verse Every Christian Should Read And Think About

These ancient words of a centuries old poem are carved in a gothic medieval alphabet on a towering ornate cathedral door right in the heart of a small town in Germany. If you translate this into Modern English the words tell you a lot about the condition of man:

You Call Me

You call me eternal, then do not seek me.
You call me fair, then do not love me.
You call me gracious, then do not trust me.
You call me just, then do not fear me.
You call me life, then do not choose me.
You call me light, then do not see me.
You call me Lord, then do not respect me.
You call me Master, then do not obey me.
You call me merciful, then do not thank me.
You call me mighty, then do not honor me.
You call me noble, then do not serve me.
You call me rich, then do not ask me.
You call me Savior, then do not praise me.
You call me shepherd, then do not follow me.
You call me The Way, then do not walk with me.
