 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

I am writing these things to you,

So that you may never sin;

But an advocate is true,

For pardoning you within.

 

For the propitiation,

Of sin is Christ our Lord;

For the conciliation,

That can never be ignored.

 

Not just us but the whole world,

And that we have come to know;

By confessing sins are hurled,

Along with guilt that would show.

 

If we know His commandments,

But we know not Jesus Christ;

Christ aches from abandonment,

The world to us has enticed.

 

You will then be a liar,

Cannot be telling the truth;

Desires are on fire,

For acting rude and uncouth.

 

But whoever keeps His Word,

Truly has God and His love;

Enters the heart and is stirred,

As it flows down from above.

 

Whoever says they abide;

Must also walk the same way;

His Law is engraved inside,

So, heart and mind do not stray.

 

I write to you no new Law,

But an old one from the start;

Keep you from getting a flaw,

Remembering in your heart.

 

A new command that I write,

Which is true in Him and you;

For giving you the insight,

The darkness not passing through.

 

The darkness passes away,

And the true light is shining;

For life starting a new day,

Gloom and doom are declining.

 

If you say you are in the light,

But is hating your brother;

Darkness still in your sight,

With no love for another.
