A Righteous Desire

The loads of sin which thou commit daily
Commits thou not of thine own willing;
But sin, having already usurped over thee;
Causes thee to commit to his pleasing:

The sins in which thou whines daily
Purchased thou not of thine own treasure;
But sin, being the bulk producer;
Enjoins thee to execute for his pleasure:

This venture is treason, against
Thine benevolent Creator’s will,
Thine marvelous potter’s purpose;
It’s trading on dodgy hill.

Offer:
The purpose of thine
Savior’s descent into death?
So that thine redemption
From sin might be birth!

That thou might be freed
From the age long tyranny
Which thine master, a greed,
Despotically held you in!

That thou might be saved,
From the power by which,
Vigorously, sin toiled
To have thine veiled!

That thou might be a freedman,
And may cheer for a good life;
That thou, been made righteous,
Would regard God’s righteousness!

But…
“Freedom is not willingly
Given until, tenaciously,
It is demanded for
By the oppressed”;

Never will thou be freed
From sin, thy master, a greed,
If thou wouldn’t, by now, determine
The ‘how’ of thy release:

Therefore desire:
Desire to become a freedman;
Desire to halt the tossing
Around that sin had,
With thee, been doing.

Desire to find thy ground
In Christ and to be stand firm,
Ever, on that ground –
Out of the mire;

To be brought into
A new life, under
A new master –
Righteousness:

A serene environment –
Congregation of the freed
Sons of God, in Christ.
