 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

I urge you to walk in a way,

A way worthy to the calling;

Not to be lured causing to stray,

From the grace result in falling.


Humility and gentleness,

For patience with one another;

You deserve of His blessedness,

When showing love for each other.


Eagerly maintain unity,

Of the Spirit to bond in peace;

Displaying of your purity,

A righteousness that will not cease.


For one body and one Spirit,

Which is the same as you were called;

To the one hope from your merit,

No longer will you become flawed.


One faith and baptized in one Lord,

One God and a Father of all;

A triune God in one accord,

Who is answering our call.


Grace was given to each of us,

As to the measure of the gift;

That the Father giving as thus,

Building confidence to uplift.


So, when Christ ascended on high,

He had led a host of captives;

Gave gifts to men from their outcry,

From a caring God who forgives.


What does it mean for to ascend,

When He descended to the deep;

The lower regions to defend,

Us from Satan when we will sleep.


He who descended is the One,

Who also ascended above;

Into Heaven which is the Son,

That He might fill all things with love.
