We are under obligation,
Not unto fleshy desires;
Rather by an affirmation,
About what the Lord requires.
Living by the flesh you will die,
But by the Spirit you shall live;
For death is not the answer why,
Through confession God will forgive.
All that are led by the Spirit,
Will be also the sons of God;
While doing good in merit,
They will no longer become flawed.
You did not receive the Spirit,
If iniquities leads your way;
And you will never inherit,
Salvation because you will stray.
Slavery leads again to fear,
And hearing such a mournful cry;
Because you never do revere,
Of Abba Father with a sigh.
The Spirit Himself bears witness,
To every child of God;
About their spiritual fitness,
Showing that they honor and laud.
Heirs of God also heirs with Christ,
For we suffer and glorified;
Through all that we have sacrificed,
In supporting the crucified.
Consider present suffering,
Cannot ever even compare;
With the amount of buffering,
That Jesus is willing to share.
Since the inheritance is sealed,
We wait for the revelation;
When the glory will be revealed,
In giving a celebration.
We are exposed to vanity,
Not willingly because of God;
Subjected to futility,
Because of us in being flawed.
Hope is in what we do not see,
We eagerly wait to endure;
Since our faith can make us free,
And possibly give us a cure.
