A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Inspired by a revival sermon.




Times in life

Are filled with sorrow and strife.

Many are seeking something

In which to sing.


A need so strong,

Casting a shadow long.

Someone’s in need

Of a Gate-Kicker indeed.


A heart to care--

Care enough to share

The Good News of Jesus Christ,

So true hope will rise.


To deliver the captive from utter doom

Into God’s Presence of truth.

To go out to save,

Gate-Kickers help break chains.


Being a light in the darkness,

Going where you’re called, to relieve distress.

Light the torch

And bring them to God’s front porch.


He came to set us free,

And by His Spirit are we free indeed.

Let His Light mightily flicker,

As we become more like the true Gate-Kicker.

I've read a lot of Christian poetry and authors, but I've never encountered "Gate-Kicker". The concept fits perfectly with this piece and I was reminded of the truth within, and yes, the need for more Gate-Kickers! Nicely penned.
