 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

As I testify in the Lord,

That you no longer have to walk;

The way heathens have ignored,

The futile ways that they talk.


They are dark in understanding,

Alienated from life with God;

Ignorance from their demanding,

Idol worshipping that is fraud.


Ignorance that hardens the heart,

They have become callous in thought;

Impurity what they impart,

Of the teachings that Satan taught.


But it was not as learned through Christ,

Assuming you paid attention;

Through Jesus the truth is enticed,

Of offensive apprehension.


You were taught in your former way,

The way of life to lay aside;

Deceitful desires that stray,

Makes them unable to abide.


Renew the spirit of your mind,

Enabled to live the new life;

Produced by God to be aligned,

He guides you in the midst of strife.


So, put away any falsehood,

Speaking the truth with their neighbor;

To others to be understood,

One another through their labor.


So be angry but do not sin,

Let not anger see the sunset;

A chance for Satan to begin,

Allows for increasing your debt.


Allow the thief no longer steal,

Do honest work with your own hands;

For God has something to reveal,

If you abide by His commands.


Let no corrupting talk come out,

Only such good that can be built;

Never shedding of any doubt,

Confessed to be free from all guilt.


Put away bitterness and wrath,

Being kind and tenderhearted;

Stay on the straight and narrow path,

The direction God has charted.
