 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

That which was from the beginning,

Which we have seen with our eyes;

About this world and its sinning,

Tries to be pleasure in disguise.

 

For all in which that we have heard,

Looked on and touched with our hands;

About life written in the Word,

To be righteous that God demands.

 

The life that was made manifest,

We have seen as to testify;

Proclaim eternal life to quest,

No one is able to deny.

 

For it is what the Father made,

That which we have seen and heard;

The reason I am not afraid,

Proclaiming of the written Word.

 

That you have fellowship in Christ,

And we are writing of these things;

Knowing why He was sacrificed,

For joy in salvation He brings.

 

This is the message we have heard,

From Him and now proclaim to you;

That God is light and has occurred,

And in Him no darkness is due.

 

If we have fellowship with Him,

While in darkness that we walk;

We lie with a future that is grim,

Practicing truth, we never talk.

 

If we walk with Him in the light,

And fellowship with each other;

His blood gives us a new insight,

No longer sinning another.

 

If we might say we have no sin,

It is ourselves we deceive;

And the trueness is not within,

So, we do not truly believe.

 

But if our sins are confessed,

God is faithful and will forgive;

For cleansing us and be blessed,

So that we can righteously live.

 

If we say that we have not sinned,

Then we are surely a liar;

Not spiritually disciplined,

The darkness what we acquire.
