 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

So what is the implication?
Should we sin being uncontrolled?
The Law is an indication,
Rejecting what God would uphold.
 
Unthinkable if you offer,
To be the a slave to someone;
Like a caddy to the golfer,
Fudges the score when he is done.
 
For you must obey the master,
Even if your master is sin;
Noncompliance is a disaster,
Unto your mind and heart within.
 
Sin as your master leads to death,
Obey God brings His approval;
Eternal life after last breath,
And corruption brings removal.
 
You were slaves to the earthly sin,
But thanks to God you now obey;
For a new life that you begin,
No longer will you ever stray.
 
Freed from sin that you were made slaves,
Now servant that God approves of;
Who will rescue you from your graves,
While clothing you with His love.
 
I am speaking in human terms,
For weakness of corrupt nature;
Because it merely reaffirms,
For making you a new creature.
 
You once offered every part,
As slaves to sexual practice;
Disobedience depraved the heart,
Satan called you his apprentice.
 
This led to disobedient lives,
Obsession led to sacrifice;
While your idolatry thrives,
Allows emotions to entice.
 
If you offer yourself to God,
This leads you to live holy lives;
Worshipping to honor and laud,
Awaiting for when Christ arrives.
