 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

If you put things before brothers,

You are a good servant of Christ;

Training in the words to others,

Faith in doctrine that has enticed.

 

Have nothing to do that depraves,

Rather be trained for godliness;

Because iniquity enslaves,

In blocking you from holiness.

 

It gives promise within this life,

As well as into right the next;

For enduring through any strife,

Even when it seems too perplexed.

 

The faithful say as trustworthy,

Deserving of full acceptance;

For being righteous and holy,

Remaining in full confidence.

 

To the end we toil and strive,

Because we have a living hope;

Set on a God that is alive,

Through a lifetime having to cope.

 

A living God as a Savior,

Especially those who believe;

Looks down upon us with favor,

With salvation that we receive.

 

These things that we command and teach,

Let no one despise of your youth;

For it is the Gospel you preach,

Avoiding those that are uncouth.

 

Be an example to believers,

Conduct of love and purity;

So, their faith can be perceivers,

Grow in godly maturity.

 

Devote within public reading,

Of Scripture and exhortation;

Enables you in succeeding,

To become a new creation.

 

Neglect not the gift God gave you,

It was given as a blessing;

That lets prophecy to hold true,

Of what the future is to bring.

 

Immerse yourself within these things.

So that all may see your progress;

Remember what persistence brings,

Through the Word the hearers to bless.
