 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

When I saw that they walked,

Not upright to the truth;

The slander that they talked,

Was so rude and uncouth.

 

But we are Jews by birth,

Not Gentile sinners;

Living here on the earth,

Which has made us winners.

 

No one is justified.

By the works of the Law;

But through the crucified,

That Christ has cured the flaw.

 

In Christ we have believed,

Justice by faith in Christ;

Salvation is received,

Honoring is sufficed.

 

In our endeavor,

As justified in Christ;

Because our error,

Were found to be enticed.

 

Christ is not a sinner,

Unlike as what we are;

Being a beginner,

As a babe with a scar.

 

Because if I rebuild,

As to what I tore down;

Confession has fulfilled,

So that we will not drown.

 

For through the law I died,

That I might live to God;

As for the crucified,

I will honor and laud.

 

No longer I who live,

But with Christ within me;

Because God did forgive,

For the iniquity.

 

The life that I now live,

By a faith in the Son;

With the love that I give,

For salvation had won.

 

I do not nullify,

Through the grace of the Lord;

For I cannot deny.

Never to be ignored.
