Tried once again to write acrostics about Gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12-14) and this time got waylaid by the expression ‘Body of Christ’.
Bones, flesh, lifeblood, sinews combine
Organs, hormones obey God’s design,
Dispute no more about which part is best.
Young, give freely of ideals and zest
Old, your experience and wisdom share
Feast upon testimonies seasoned with prayer.
Consider you are wonderfully and fearfully made
Healed in the heart now sin’s price has been paid
Rise above doctrine, banish division
Inspire each member to strive for one vision
Suffer together, together rejoice
Tongues of prophecy tell out as one voice.
