following-in-his-footstepsFollowing Obedience – A Poem in Philippians

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:12-13 NIV

Put one foot in front of the other

It is time to do it again

Obedience is never ending

Consistency is the way to win

Salvation is a wonderful gift

But you have to work on it too

Holiness has been imparted

Living it out is expected of you

God is high and lifted up

His judgments stand true and tall

Jesus took the entire blow

Grace is now extended to all

God has a purpose and plan

He includes you in that call

It is to His good pleasure 

Working in you His all in all

You are not a puppet on a string

Draw now on strength from up above

Power and grace to you is granted

Journey thru life, with His love

Leave a trail for others to follow

Make right choices that are clear

Well done good and faithful servant

Lovingly spoken, soon you will hear.
