Following His Example
Since Christ had suffered a great deal,
Think about just how we should feel;
By taking the same attitude,
Never hide from or elude.
For one who has suffered within,
No longer be subject of sin;
Not guided by those desires,
Making you cheaters and liars.
Living the rest of our lives,
As spiritualism survives;
Is keeping you within His love,
And your mind on the things above.
Then each and every day through,
God guides what He wants you to do;
No time to spend on earthly things,
Or questing on lustful cravings.
You did much of that in the past,
When you were a worldly outcast;
Getting drunk at wild parties,
And uttering obscenities.
Unbelievers will criticize,
Start rumors as they make up lies;
They have to account to the Judge,
The reason why they hold a grudge.
