 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


For the sake of faith in God,

And the knowledge of the truth;

We need to honor and laud,

And never being uncouth.


We must be in one accord,

Righteous within godliness;

For having faith in the Lord,

Conditioned in holiness.


Because God who never lies,

Gives hope for eternal life;

Making us noble and wise,

For helping to cope with strife.


Manifested in His Word,

Long before the ages began;

Through the preaching you have heard,

About the Lord and His plan.


If anyone be blameless,

That the husband of one wife;

With children that are shameless,

Are enjoying married life.


His children are believers,

Not impish or unruly;

Knowing they are receivers,

Of their salvation truly.


An overseer as steward,

Must be above all reproach;

As a servant of the Lord,

Good and faithful to encroach.


He has to be well-mannered,

Not as a drunkard on wine;

Not angered or quick-tempered,

And prays before he would dine.


Hospitable, lover of good,

Self-controlled and discipline;

Doing everything he should,

Committing no deadly sin.


This testimony is true,

To rebuke the deceivers;

For their faith is not like you,

Since they are nonbelievers.


They profess in knowing God,

But deny Him by their deed;

Impure and never to laud,

Only thinking of their greed.
