 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

You have followed my teaching,
My conduct and aim in life;
My patient faith in reaching,
Of those who endure the strife.
My steadfastness and my love,
My persecutions I suffer;
I look to the Lord above,
For solace and to buffer.
Persecutions I endured,
The Lord has delivered me;
My salvation is assured,
From bondage He set me free.
All who desire to live,
In having a godly life;
Through Christ God will forgive,
Helping me endure the strife.
But evil men who seduce,
Shall go on from bad to worse;
They only want to produce,
Casting a demonic curse.
Deceiving and be deceived,
But continue what you have learned;
Your faith that you have believed,
Gives blessings what you have earned.
You knew since as a child,
Known from the Holy Scriptures;
The Word of God compiled,
Within the heart it captures.
They will be making you wise,
Through your faith in Jesus Christ;
Seeing through deceitful lies
Salvation to be enticed.
All Scripture breathed out by God,
Profitable for doctrine;
For training that is unflawed,
As righteously discipline.
The man of God be perfect,
Equipped for work that is good;
Although many will reject,
For doing things as we should.
