For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.
Isaiah 33:22 KJV
While here you should obey the worldly laws,
For here you lay upon your earthly bed,
But if they clash with Spirit give them pause,
For Christ is your authority and head.
The laws that Jesus gives are Spirit born,
Yet they impact each aspect of your life.
He is your Lord and King when you’re reborn;
He is your final judge through stress and strife.
When you obey God’s laws instead of man’s,
You might incur the wrath of earthly judge,
But prison may be part of God’s own plans,
So always listen to the Spirit’s nudge.
The Lord will save your soul – man’s laws cannot.
You’ll still be His when all that’s mortal rots.
Yes. HE is the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our faith Hebrews 12:2
and will be faithful to complete the good work that HE has started in us. Philippians 1:6
I almost used the picture of that Kentucky law clerk to illustrate this scripture and sonnet.
