A Poem for the Christian Pilgrim

1 Peter 2:11-12 "Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation." (KJV)
The past for the Christian is no more in the cross
What once was gain is now counted as loss
God's hour glass was flipped when I was born anew
By His grace faith came and I believed Him true
Life started afresh, only to look ahead
The old me is gone, past and dead
In Christ what was future is present for me
I look for His coming in this fleeting history
Salvation s
ecure and faith fighting sin
Characterizes the person who has been born again
Some day my breath will leave and I will end the fight
What is unseen right now will soon be made sight
With Him Ill be, awaiting trumpet sound
When He will raise my body transformed out of the ground
Until then be faithful, the Christian is never alone
For the Spirit dwells therein and Christ is on the throne
