Ten Little Christians

Ten little "Christians" standing in line,
One disliked the preacher, then there were nine.

Nine little "Christians" stayed up very late,
One overslept Sunday morning, then there were eight.

Eight little "Christians" on their way to Heaven,
One desired the world, then there were seven.

Seven little "Christians" chirping like chicks,
One disliked the music standards, then there was six.

Six little "Christians" seemed very much alive,
One lost their interest, then there were five.

Five little "Christians" pulling toward the shore,
One stopped to rest, then there were four.

Four little "Christians" each busy as a bee,
One got his feelings hurt, then there were three.

Three little "Christians" knew not what to do,
One joined the hip crowd, then there were two.

Two little "Christians" our rhyme is nearly done,
Differed with each other, then there was one.

One little Christian can't do much tis true,
Brought his friend to Jesus, then there was two.

Two earnest Christians each won one more,
That doubled their number, then there were four.

Four sincere Christians worked early and late,
Each won another, then there were eight.

Eight spendid Christians if they doubled as before,
In just seven Sundays there would be one thousand twenty-four.

In this little jingle, there is a lesson true,
You belong either to the building or to the wrecking crew!!!

Are you tearing down the church by your words and actions, or are your building the church by bringing others to Christ?????

(I added the quotations around the Christian words above, since we know that a true Christian will find his way to Heaven, even if he fails in his service to God while here on earth. The Bible tells us there are a group of carnal Christians, clinging to the world instead of clinging to the things of God; however, a carnal Christian is still a saved Christian!!! A genuinely saved person is always saved!!!)
