Righteousness Attaining.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

If righteousness through works is won

Through deeds life we attain

Futile suffered God’s Lamb & Son

Dying His death in vain


But through the righteousness of Christ

Obedience to His song

Through faith in whom God sacrificed

Reveals that we belong


By serving The risen Jesus

Walking in His might

Living with Him who sees us

Fighting love’s righteous fight


Because of Satan’s confusion

Of true loves obedience

We soar from hell’s delusion

With righteous ingredients


While truth endures each stormy blast

Where falsehood cannot stand

We thus remain erect and fast

Within The Master’s hand


But fools will doubt these awesome facts?

Today and evermore

No righteous deeds, nor holy acts

Gives keys to Heaven’s Door


Only knowing The one true King

His Son & heir believing

When righteous fruits through Him we bring

Love, we’ll be receiving


Obeying thus we flee from hell

From death all chains we sever

Walking, living and serving well

So will we live forever.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
