Fulfilling the Ministry
I charge you in front of the Lord,
Who will judge the living and dead;
Our appearance not ignored,
Of the judgement that lies ahead.
Preach the Word ready in season,
With complete patience being taught;
Reprove and rebuke the reason,
To the evil as being sought.
Endure longsuffering doctrine,
Exhort all doctrine that is sound;
Maintain spiritual discipline,
That is keeping you Heaven bound.
The time comes people not endure,
Sound doctrine having itching ears;
After their own lusts at their core,
Their own passions as end time nears.
They turn away hearing the truth,
Into fantasy myths they wander;
Audacious and being uncouth,
Immoral ways they will ponder.
So, always be sober-minded,
Work as an evangelist;
That suffering not be blinded,
By one who is an atheist.
I am ready to be poured out,
And being offered as a drink;
Because there is not any doubt,
Of departure time as to think.
Because I have fought the good fight,
And have nearly finished the race;
I have kept the faith towards the light,
At the finish line to embrace.
Henceforth there is laid up for me,
A lovely crown of righteousness;
The righteous judge who I shall see,
To award me His blessedness.
Christ will be awarding that day,
To all who loves His appearing;
Anyone who does laud and obey,
Not wavering from revering.
