 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

I am making it known to you.

The Gospel I already told;

And that you must then continue,

For proclaiming by being bold.


Based on the faith you have received,

You are saved through this loved doctrine;

But you must have firmly believed,

If through a faithful discipline.


I taught you unless you believe,

Assured that you have thought it out;

Christ died so that you will receive,

While not holding any doubt.


Birth from a virgin in her womb,

A carpenter had as his son;

When died He was placed in a tomb.

After all of His work was done.


Brought back to life on the third day,

As the Scriptures had predicted;

His hands and feet He could display,

Where His body was afflicted.


He appeared to the eleven,

Judas already died and gone;

Before ascending to Heaven,

After just forty days at dawn.


Just like an aborted fetus,

Who was suddenly brought to life;

Inflicted with diabetes,

Throughout the body causing strife.


It was all because of the sin,

That has corrupted my body;

I need spiritual discipline,

No longer being so gaudy.


I have never even been fit,

Being a servant in the church;

But His mercy wipes out merit,

That are like vultures on their perch.


His loving kindness was with me,

Whether as I or another;

Compassion has helped me to see,

To humbly forgive my brother.
