God’s Hall of Fame Poem

 

With a world with such emphasis on sports and who wins and loses. Here is a poem that describes the true applause we shall be living for. An Audience of One.

[1] Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares [us], and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, [2] looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. [3] For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. [4] You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. – {Hbr 12:1-4 NKJV}

God’s Hall of Fame

by: Walt Huntley

 

Your name may not appear down here 
In this world’s Hall of Fame.
In fact, you may be so unknown 
That no one knows your name;
The headlines here may pass you by, 
The neon lights of blue,
But if you love and serve the Lord
Then I have news for you.

This Hall of Fame is only good
As long as time shall be;
But keep in mind, God’s Hall of Fame
Is for eternity
This crowd on earth they soon forget
The heroes of the past.
They cheer like mad until you fail
and that’s how long you last.
But in God’s Hall of Fame
By just believing on His Son
Inscribed you’ll find your name.

I tell you, friend, I wouldn’t trade
My name, however small,
That’s written there beyond the stars
In that Celestial Hall,
For any famous name on earth,
Or glory that it shares;
I’d rather be an unknown here
And have my name up there.
