 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

Any encouragement in Christ,

And any comfort from the love;

As you stop from being enticed,

Concentrating on things above.

 

For His Spirit participates,

With sympathy and affection;

Till the desire dissipates,

From the enticing infection.

 

Fulfill the mind with a like mind,

With the same love in full accord;

And being perfectly aligned,

Of the attitude of my Lord.

 

No more of selfish ambition,

No longer in having conceit;

Rather a humbled condition,

Being spiritually complete.

 

Let every man gain an interest,

Of others and not just their own;

Gospel sharing to its fullest,

In which your Father would condone.

 

Allow His mind to be in you,

Which is also in Jesus Christ;

Bud to earthly things adieu,

Things that need to be sacrificed.

 

Though He was in the form of God,

Did not count as equality;

But Jesus was pure and not flawed,

Committed no iniquity.

 

He had taken a human form,

As a servant likeness of men;

So, His appearance as the norm,

Enabled for blending in then.

 

He humbled himself to obey,

Compliant till death on a cross;

For our sins He had to pay,

His mortal life suffered the loss.

 

God has highly exalted Him,

Bestowed upon Him of the name;

So, the future would not look dim,

And the people then could proclaim.

 

Through Christ every knee will bow,

While every tongue confess;

That Jesus is Lord they will vow,

The entire world would profess.
