 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


What shall we ever say?
Should we proceed to sin?
Nonsense if we obey,
Never let Satan win.
Sin has caused us to die,
Under its influence;
When we cheat, steal and lie,
We drop our defense.
Do you not know that all,
Were baptized into Christ;
Into His death to fall,
No longer be enticed.
As baptized in His death,
We were placed in His tomb;
Then given a new breath,
Rebirth out of the womb.
Power from the Father,
With a new life to live;
Christ as our Brother,
Knowing God will forgive.
We become united,
Through our death with Him;
And have been invited,
To share spiritual vim.
The one we use to be,
With Him was crucified;
So that we are sin free,
If we choose to abide.
We are absolved from sin,
But if we died with Christ;
Why still corrupt within,
As we become enticed.
Satan desires to take,
As a constant conflict;
Tries to make you forsake,
Deceive to contradict.
Consider yourself dead,
But power for living;
Through Christ in being fed,
With prayer in forgiving.
