Practice Love

Walk by the Holy Spirit,
And you will not gratify;
Desires you inherit,
From the flesh you can deny.

For the desires you lust,
Oppose the Holy Spirit;
His desires you can trust,
In all that you will merit.

For these oppose each other,
Not do what you desire;
Able to help another,
What they need to acquire.

You are not under the Law,
If the Holy Spirit leads;
Preventing you from a flaw,
For meeting your righteous needs.

Carnal works are evident,
As an immorality;
Emotional impudent,
Displaying impurity.

Fits of anger and envy,
Drunkness and having orgies;
Causing strife for jealousy,
Enmity towards rivalries.

I warn you now as before,
That who do any such things;
Will be finding a locked door,
No chance in getting your wings.

Fruit from the Spirit is love,
Giving you the joy and peace;
Patience and kindness from above,
With goodness that will not cease.

And those who belong to Christ,
Have crucified desires;
Passions have been sacrificed,
Extinguishing the fires.

If we live by the Spirit,
Let us also keep in step;
Knowing that we inherit,
With His vigor and His pep.
