Let Our Boast Be Love

Let Our Boast Be Love

 

We love to boast salvation’s ours

We’ve seen God’s Truth & Light

Received with grace of Heaven’s powers

To put all foes to flight

 

But are we safe when love is still?

When love stands idle by

We see the devil cheat and kill

We watch while lost souls die

 

They live in filth with hate galore

A stench to God on high

Fighting striving with those next door

Living the self same lie

 

Forgive; pardon your neighbour’s guilt

Relieve one’s troubled heart

Cover them free with love’s warm quilt

Induce a brand new start

 

Love is selfless powerful true

The devil’s greatest foe

Pure divine for me and you

When to the lost we go

 

Encourage faith by planting seeds

Share love with faith to root

By caring sharing meeting needs

We serve and bear sweet fruit

 

Thank God for love able to care

For knowing His Lamb and Son

For all He freely gives to share

For all life’s victories won

 

Refuse to be the devil’s fool

In faith pray eyes to see

Become in Christ salvation’s tool

To set more neighbours free.....

"Love is selfless powerful true/The devil’s greatest foe..." Every morning as I do my meditation - I look at a book mark I have with "love" on it. I am reminded then, and throughout the day that love is my greatest tool agains the devil. Thank you Michael. Blessings to you and your family.

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.
