 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove
I urge by the mercy of God,
To be a living sacrifice;
To bodily honor and laud,
No longer let this earth entice.
 
Be holy to satisfy God,
Which is your spiritual worship;
Avoiding gods who are a fraud,
That possibly cause you to trip.
 
Do not be conformed to this place,
Transforming renewal of your mind;
You will become as a disgrace,
That will cause you to be maligned.
 
That by testing you may discern,
What God specifies in His will;
What is acceptable to learn,
Which is good and pure to instill.
 
For by the grace given to me,
I say to each one among you;
By using the insight to see,
For enabling you to construe.
 
Think not of yourself more highly,
Than Jesus would ought to think;
 Become humble acting shyly,
While your prayer becomes a link.
 
Any judgment thought be sober,
As faith according to measure;
In both your leisure and labor,
God will reward you with treasure.
 
One body has many members,
Not all members not all the same;
But everyone remembers,
Being called upon by their name.
 
So, we are one body in Christ,
All having gifts that would dissent;
As their pleasures are sacrificed,
But what He commands they consent.
 
Gifts that differ given by grace,
Will serve to the One who teaches;
For the One who leads will embrace,
All those members that out reaches.
