Practice Love

You were called to freedom,
But use not for a chance;
Motive to the Kingdom,
Personally advance.

Rather to serve through love,
To serve one another;
For blessings from above,
Caring for each other.

The whole Law is fulfilled,
For loving your neighbor;
As yourself is instilled,
Both leisure and labor.

To bite and devour,
One another watch out;
Misuse not the power,
That would shed any doubt.

So, walk by the Spirit,
You will not gratify;
Desires to merit,
To morally deny.

For fleshy desires,
Are against the Spirit;
From Satan acquires,
Pleasures to inherit.

If led by the Spirit,
You are not neath the Law;
And you will inherit,
As you answer the call.

Flesh works are evident,
Through immorality;
By being impudent,
Strife and impurity.

Impure thoughts and envy,
Drunkenness and anger;
Rivals and jealousy,
All are causing danger.

All things that are like these,
As I give a warning;
Are things that do not please,
Lastly turn to mourning.

If you belong to Christ,
The flesh is crucified;
No longer be enticed,
That it had satisfied.
