A MARTIN LUTHER REMINDER
If in one point I shirk from the battle,
My whole witness hears the death rattle…
One link of tank tread
Can stop me dead,
In the eyes of the world, I’m addled.
My friends and I don’t agree
On all parts of eternity…
Things we both like
Draw both in spite,
Of differences in certainty.
I don’t want to be offensive or cruel,
Likewise they want peace to rule…
But if I misrepresent Bible
I’m morally libel,
And no more than a doddering fool.
God requires change inside the heart,
The only way for new life to impart…
God’s love to others
By His druthers,
By externals it’s just a false start!
I believe you must come to Christ,
Accepting His one sacrifice…
As payment for sin
That we all are in,
Obedience to God will suffice.
The salvation from the price of sin is free,
But one must grow in all three…
Body, mind, spirit,
To obey God’s Spirit
And with His words agree.
