 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

For freedom, Christ has set us free,
So do not become as a slave;
Standing firm so that you can see,
The day He rescues from the grave.
Do not become bondage to sin,
Being mired what does not profit;
That you will be entangled again,
It affects what you inherit.
If you accept circumcision,
Christ is no advantage to you;
But it will be your decision,
That you are going to construe.
Any man that is circumcised,
Obligated to keep the whole Law;
Rather than to the crucified,
Who had died for where you did flaw.
Then you will be severed from Christ,
By the Law you are justified;
Falling from grace being enticed,
Ignoring of the crucified.
Through the Spirit by faith we hope,
Of righteousness we eagerly wait;
In the meantime, then we must cope,
As we live here to compensate.
With Christ only faith works through love,
Obeying the truth hinders not;
As you keep looking up above,
For any answers you have sought.
This persuasion is not from Him,
But the confidence in the Lord;
Will give you the spiritual vim,
That will keep you in one accord.
Then the cross no longer offends,
Although others will persecute;
Any of your preaching defends,
Will cause an end to the dispute.
You shall be loving your neighbor,
As yourself displaying the love;
Fulfilling the Word in labor,
Compassionate caring thereof.
