 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

In the flesh Jesus suffered,

Arm yourself the same way;

Thinking being buffered,

If you no longer stray.

 

Live for the rest of time,

Without human passions;

Giving up any crime,

With seductive fashions.

 

For the time that has past,

Suffices for doing;

That just seem not to last,

Such shameful pursuing.

 

Lawless adultery,

Of sensual pleasures;

For lewd intimacy,

Lusting adulterers.

 

To this with all respect,

They seem to be surprised;

The malign to reject,

That the Lord has despised.

 

They will answer to Him,

Judge living and the dead;

And make their fate look grim,

In a fiery bed.

 

Though judged in flesh that way,

They might through the Spirit;

Show they trust and obey,

Through faith they inherit.

 

The end of all at hand,

Remember self-control;

Sober-mind at demand,

So that God keeps your soul.

 

Keep loving each other,

Since love covers most sin;

Think of one another,

Hospitable within.

 

Each has received a gift,

To serve one another;

Good stewards to uplift,

Motivate your brother.

 

So, speak as oracles,

To strengthen and incite;

How God works miracles,

So, others see the light.
