A Christian poem for the Writer's Cramp due 3-7-18
Prompt: "Get inspired by the following quote (you don't have to use it, just get inspired by it) in your poem or short story:
"You have enemies. Good. That means you stood up for something, sometime in your life"
Winston Churchill. "
Jesus said we would have enemies in the world
It's a fact of the Christian way of life
The minute the Christian standard comes unfurled
You can depend that there will be strife.
Darkness hates the light of the Lord
It does not want it deeds exposed
It will fight tooth, nail, and sword
It believes it is cool and composed.
Sin lurks in shadows and hides its shame
It has no regard for the soul of man
It has much experience at its aim
It will destroy all those it can.
Do not fall victim to the death of sin
Jesus knocks so let Him in.
Sonnet. No meter intended. 14 lines.
