Feed The Spirit

Unrighteous, ungodly desires(spring up)
Those desires bubble up
From the flesh notions of sin stand
From Jesus flows grace's cup

Sin wrought so much concupicence
See the Law is Holy
Man in his separated state
Very carnal, lowly

There is a present principle
What one would do, they don't
What one shouldn't do, they do much more
Oh! Wretched man the tone__

Christians delight in God's great laws
Let the inward man feast
Crucify now the carnal man
Feed the spirit for increase  

Based on The Apostle Paul's writings in Romans 
The seventh chapter, King James Version

    Sara....he is my favorite author. Yes...I am encouraged when I remember that even Paul struggled....Yet, "We are more than conquerers" through Christ. My latest poem has several Bible verses....Give it a read if you've got a few minutes. Your poem was very well written....you took a Biblical concept and shone your light on it...IMPRESSIVE...HAPPY NEW YEAR, DEAR. HUGS

    I really enjoyed reading your tremendous and lovely write this evening! I really love the fact that you have written about the book of Romans, I particularly love the book of Corinthians myself, but they all are awesome! I want to wish you a Happy New Year for 2014 my friend! Thank you for being a good friend!
