I Died To Live

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 03 Feb 2011, 3:12 pm

A sepulture is a mausoleum
An ornate tomb with pillars
Many are the decorum of a morgue
Inside is dead and empty.
We adorn our life with much
Titles, achievements, degrees
Strip it all away and look
For inside is the real man ~
Does it need props to hold it up?
Does its echo reverberate?
The walking dead parade
As the righteousness of the Son
Yet decay and rot dwells within
They live, feed and rule
The flesh they serve unashamedly.
Foolish men who decline life
Slaves of the baser selves
Cling to religion all the more
Hypnotizing themselves in the death walk
For all that are unborn die.
Give me a simple place
Without notice or esteem
For rebirth has changed me
I live no more here
Rather I walk in the Spirit
The simplicity of life in Christ
The miracle of a new self.
The white wash is gone away
The grave cannot hold me anymore
Victory, I have conquered death
Through Him I died to live.

Very True

Indeed we die to live
the flesh wars constantly against the spirit
we must boldly crucify it by his grace so that the spiritman would live.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Gal2:20
Full of powerful imagery
well done!
