Walking Our Holiness

Walking Our Holiness
by Michael Romani

It's there in our very firm decision
That we are here for our holy mission
Coming before the Lord as we are
Correcting our path by that North Star

Seeking out so very earnestly
To walk steadfast and righteously
All of us walking by Jesus' commands
To the very best that we understand

The prophets spoke and foretold
As Jesus then lived and by exampled showed
How it is that we must walk and live
As the Breath of God loves and gives

The Old Testament is truth revealed
The New Testament is truth fulfilled
In these we find the path of abundance
Set out before us in all of it's relevance

Setting out sights on all we must know
To bring out His light into the world's shadow
Shining bright like lanterns on the hill
Following not our own will but God's will

Taking these lessons, we lead in our service
Knowing that we do not really deserve this
But taking His grace and showing His face
Through our own in our every living place

Holiness will guide us in how we shall live
As by example, we love and we give
All that we have and all that we do
Following the small path of faith keeping true

All of this is taught through the parables
Of which Jesus shared as He was capable
Tales that reveal truth to lend clarity
In what it means to live in sincerity

Students of the Gospel in expectation
Have certain lessons without exception
Caught up in and intrigued in meditation
All of the righteousness of contemplation

Thinking on and then walking in His grace
Each of us followers reflecting His face
Aha moments lived in fullest measure
Each of the teachings offered as treasure

All of this challenging us to further look
With a turn of the pages of His Holy Book
Each of the lessons, bear oft repeating
All of this a process in our completing

Each look revealing something we need
So much to learn every time we read
The reflections offered are an impression
Each time rendered in needed expression

Practicing what it is that we teach
In so doing, we lovingly extend our reach
Moving from our comfort zone into our soul
Taking to the battle as such is our role

Standing firm against the flood waters
Despite the challenges that make us totter
We live our lives faithfully in this truth
Standing strong against all reproof
