Written By Maurice Dyson (Guest Post)
That we henceforth be no more children.
Teaching on maturity
Is found in sacred writing;
Not just for our purity,
But for the war we’re fighting.
Growing is a learning curve,
While life is still persisting;
Straining every cord and nerve,
And anything worth listing.
Taking in the written word
Is only half the story;
If its use has not occurred,
It cannot count for glory
Christians have a given slot
To minister to others;
With whatever gift they’ve got,
To edify their brothers.
We must have integrity:
The armour God provided;
Satan has a strategy
To get the saints divided.
We can reach maturity
By incremental stages;
Blest with a gratuity
That lasts throughout the ages.
The Lord has given Maurice Dyson a wonderful ability to take a passage of Scripture – a story, a Biblical character, a principle of truth – and present it in poetic form.
His aim in writing these poems is to teach people about the Lord, and to draw us back into the Scriptures, so that each of us would search out the wonderful things of God.
This poem is from his book 100 Poems of Praise: Christian Poetry to Praise God.
We would like to thank Mr. Dyson for such a lovely poem.
