First Thessalonians Five Poem

As children of our Father God

Sons and daughters of the light

We belong to our heavenly King

And turn away the dark of night

 

We wear the breastplate of righteousness

Putting it on with faith and love

The helmet of salvation’s hope

Protects our heads above

 

The Lord Jesus died for us

As payment for our sin

He endured the wage, a gruesome death

Fought the battle and did win

 

No power on earth was strong enough

To keep Him in the grave

An angel of the Lord came down

And rolled the stone away

 

On the third day, He was raised to life

And seated at God’s right hand

His enemies made His footstool

He reigned over all the land

 

He gave His body and His blood

For our salvation to receive

When we confess Him as our Lord

And in our hearts believe

 

At all times, be full of joy

In everything, give thanks

This is God’s good and perfect will

For all our earthly days

 

Live in peace and harmony

With friend and foe the same

Hold on to good, avoid the bad

Bring honor to God’s name

 

Utter prayers without ceasing

Do not quench the Spirit’s fire

Let the God of peace Himself

Fulfill your heart’s desire

 

May your body, mind, and spirit

Be blameless in His eye

As the Holy Spirit cleanses you

And makes you sanctified

 

Daily read the Word of God

As the verses come alive

And remember this little ditty

From 1st Thessalonians 5.

Walk in the Light

peace in storm

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)

My precious children, I have chosen you. You belong to me. I have made you holy and righteous through my death and resurrection. No longer are you sons and daughters of the darkness. I have called you into my wonderful light. Declare your praises to me. You are mine.

Rid yourselves of all evil and abstain from immorality. Live good lives to glorify me. Those that remain in darkness may still accuse you of doing wrong. However, you have chosen a better path. This road leads to everlasting life.

Live life according to the Spirit, rather than the flesh. Like a newborn craves milk, yearn for spiritual milk, that will satisfy your longings and help you grow up in the Lord. You have now tasted that the Lord is good. Only I can satisfy your thirst.

Fill your souls with spiritual wisdom by feasting on my Word. Keep it in your heart and mind that you may recall it and use it as your weapon of choice. When your adversary temps you and lies to you, draw the sword of the Spirit, which is my Word. As you now walk in the light, the darkness will not overcome you. I have already defeated your enemy. Stand victoriously in my triumph.

You are my precious children. Do you know how much I love you? Can you grasp how wide and long and high and deep my love is for you? I loved you to the grave and back. I gave my life to pay for your sin. Now you are a child of the King, you belong to God. Live into the light and leave the darkness behind.
