The Ultimate Survivor_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The Reality of Good Friday According to Reality Television Yes, the ultimate Survivor
heard his Father say “You’re Fired!”
as he buckled ‘neath the weight of Calvary’s gall.
Though our Jesus was exalted,
he became an Average Joe
in the greatest Trading Spaces of them all.

In his death fear was a factor,
yet he willingly gave in
to the torture all who stood around could see.
When the tribe at last had spoken
and his torch had lost its flame,
this Apprentice offered us immunity.

He was voted off the island
and denied his rightful place,
still he found a way somehow to reappear.
He was fully vindicated
as he put death in its place.
Yes, the ultimate Survivor still is here.

Christ is risen!
He is risen, indeed!

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
