 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

O man of God, flee earthly things,

Pursue a righteous godliness;

Things as to what faith and love brings,

That causes steadfast gentleness.


Build up your faith, fight the good fight,

And take hold of eternal life;

By remaining within the light,

Coping with ridicule and strife.


You were called to a profession,

In the presence of witnesses;

For making a good confession,

Outside holy edifices.


You were charged in the sight of God,

Who has given life to all things;

And unto Christ honor and laud,

The good confession that it clings.


Please keep the commandment unstained,

Free from a reproach or smearing;

Your proclaiming is unrestrained,

Till your Lord is reappearing.


He displays at the proper time,

Whoever deserves His blessings;

Condemn those with unconfessed crime,

Being rebuked for transgressing.


Christ is the Sovereign Lord of lords,

And for being the King of kings;

Words sharper than the two-edged swords,

But severs not what the cured clings,


For He has immortality,

Dwells in unapproachable light;

Divine without iniquity,

With His glory shining so bright.


For no man has seen or can see,

Just as witnesses to the Word;

An eternal that has to be,

Believing in what has been heard.


For the rich in this present age,

Charge them never to be haughty;

But in God rather than a wage,

And for to be an adoptee.


From the faith there are some that swerve,

Because of professing the truth;

While others willing to serve,

Being humble and not uncouth.
