LIVING THE FAITH(SONNET)


It is of vindication by grace
That we are free and through with the law
Divinely delivered from slavery without trace
His mercy brought us providence
Just privilege, not a right for not being raw
Through him, with him, in him is the grace
For the grace, grasp Christ's anchor cross free
In grace question not, but with faith give him praise.
With hope swim in his love, he is the key
But now, how do we dwell in faith?
Be not at the centre of many ways - lost
For it's not a journey of double minds - lust
Are thou living the faith or law;
Which do you embrace?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

He who is under the law or for the law only is raw. Then, if we claim to believe in Christ we are bound by fate to be faithful to him and we must not embrace anything that deviates from the norms of Christ

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.
