A Gospel Poem About An Egg – by John Bunyan

I came across this quaint rhyme written by John Bunyan.  Pastors and Sunday School Teachers may well see the value of this poem when presenting children’s talks on Easter Sunday.

“An egg’s no chick by falling from a hen,

Nor a man a Christian till he’s born again

The egg’s at first contained within the shell;

Man, afore grace, in sins and darkness dwell.

The egg, when laid, by warmth is made a chicken,

And Christ, by grace, those dead in sin doth quicken.”
