Make a point of being courageous and strong;
today is another day from our blessed Lord.
Stand against the evil that you witness now,
as a mature apostle with Him… in one accord.

We have nothing to fear from our detractors,
who partake of the unfruitful works of darkness.
With the indwelling of God’s Spirit, we are
protected and covered with His righteousness.

We’ve been called to expose sin in the world,
even though the wicked hope that we don’t bother;
by tackling difficult subjects of human behavior,
we choose to honor Jehovah, the Holy Father!

In Him, we move and experience His Presence;
out of our brokenness shines the Light of Christ;
we desire that everyone should not be afraid
and obtain Salvation’s gift of… everlasting Life.

Nice writing...without an awareness of our sinful nature we have no idea we need a Savior...like the two thieves that hung on crosses next to Jesus, one recognized he was a sinner and Jesus said; "Today you will be with Me in Paradise.", the other thief would not acknowledge he was a sinner and needed a Savior...we are all sinners, that's me included, and we all need to accept that truth and ask Jesus to forgive and save us...james
