Stand Firm

From 1 Peter 1:3-4:  “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!  By His great mercy He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.”

Evil’s darkness surrounds

Encroaching with its sin

Life looks to turn around

Wolf hiding in sheepskin


Fraud’s light leads some astray

Moving away from God

Grace opens its doorway

Christ shatters hell’s facade


Resurrection’s new hope

Building faith’s foundation

Salvation, Christ’s tow rope

Father’s promised station


Word speaks of Lord’s power

Calling all to stand firm

Each and every hour

Holy Spirit confirms


Faith anchored in His care

Wearing God’s armored vest

All times, kneeling in prayer

Mercy braves each test

From Ephesians 6:13:  “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on the evil day and, having prevailed against everything, to stand firm.”
