 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Live as His People

I ask in the name of the Lord,
Never letting it be ignored;
The Lord is willing to forgive,
If you change the way that you live.

For other people of this earth,
Do not know their spiritual worth;
Their minds are set on worthless things,
Unto their heart for as it clings.

They do not see since they embark,
Everywhere that it is dark;
Being excluded from the light,
Stubbornness has blinded their sight.

No longer do they sense the shame,
When hearing what we do proclaim;
And they have become so unchaste,
Never to feel being disgraced.

Immorally every way,
Desires allow them to stray;
As perversion will crave for more,
Easily tempted by the lure.

But that is what you were not taught,
And what is supposed to be sought;
With knowing what is in the Word,
Just as all the times you have heard.

For we are in this together,
Just like the bird with each feather;
So we can live as His people,
In accordance with the Gospel.

So get rid of all of the lies,
That is what the God does despise;
Stick with the truth throughout each day,
Which will help from going astray.
