I want you to know what happened,
Has served to advance the Gospel;
Knowledge and wisdom are widened,
While speaking to the people.
That it has become known throughout,
My bonds in Christ are manifest;
No longer having any doubt,
Allowing their faith to be blest.
Most of the sisters and brothers,
Became confident in the Lord;
More bolder to speak to others,
Less fear to be in one accord.
Some preach of Christ from rivalry,
Others teach in faith from good will;
Strife develops from an envy,
In how they may try to instill.
The one preach Christ of contention,
The latter does it out of love;
In defense with good intention,
Convictions of bonds from above.
Some out of selfish ambition,
In proclaiming the Word of Christ;
But others with the condition,
That the love of Christ is enticed.
Whether in pretense or in truth,
Christ is proclaimed that we rejoice;
To the elder also the youth,
Convincing to make the right choice.
