Stepping Ahead to Hebrews

Be nourished by the gospel;
Applying what you learn
By following Jesus
At each and every turn.

Be an example to others
And develop strengths carefully
By determining your main purpose
That fulfills your destiny

Be an overcomer;
Endure difficulty 
By growing in positive qualities 
For eternal victory.

Be a person of the word 
Being grounded and steady
So in any circumstance
You are always ready.

Be boosted by the Holy Spirit;
A power that fills your cup 
To turn the world upside down 
Because your heart is right side up.

Be growing together in faith 
Because of what’s been done.
Refreshed and energized 
With momentum for what’s to come.

Be stepping ahead in faith
By removing any doubt.
Looking forward to tomorrow
Knowing God will work it out.

Be living the good life now;
Always purpose driven
With even better days ahead
Because of what’s been given.

Be at peace with one another;
Working in one accord
By meeting challenges to come
With focus on the reward!

  1. Here it is. Love this!

    Be an example to others
    And develop strengths carefully
    By determining your main purpose
    That fulfills your destiny.

    Blessings!

    One idea for facilitating the application of our faith is the use of inspirational poems because poetry narrows thoughts to a few lines as a way to help the mind encourage the heart into tangible actions. This poem was inspired after finishing my study of the book of Hebrews.
