Prepared for the Prelate

Updated on January 25, 2019

A Prelude to Rapture

1. Uneasy had ever been the head

that wears the crown - 'tis always said

whether made of heavy gold or painful thorns

or even a work of feathers or irons.

Leaders of men and servants of all

are they that have answered the divine call

to be God's bondmen in the service of Christ

and do their best to prevent Satan's heist

Always first in the field of Spiritual battles

and ready to save God's flock from all kinds of rattles.

 

 

2.He arrived today as part of his job description

To pour us a blessing without any restriction

Ever ready to do his duty, he looked younger

A spring in his step that made him seem taller

Such was the authority that heaven has bestowed on this man -

Born of the West but a citizen of every clan -

He chose his words carefully

A study in very surety

Wearing his Cassock - holy, tidy and clean

He blessed us one and all, his words not mean!

 

 

3. The preparation of the Diocese was powerful

Members, one and all, refused to look awful

The escort he got was more than was reserved for governors

The zeal he inspired was the stuff of legends - Oh! Cavanaugh!

He received rapturous serenades

From the Boys' and Girls' Brigades

And off to the next Circuit the entourage proceeds

Trust Wesley Circuit to top Banham's deeds

How I wish this same level of preparation is what obtains

As we eagerly await the Rapture of the Church by the One who bore our pains!

 

 

What happens when we fail to do our duty efectively?

1. Others are discouraged______________

2. Progress is stagnated_______________

3. Others are made to work harder______________

4. Bad feelings become rampant leading to violence___________

Which do you think? Is it better not to do your duty than to overdo your duty?

      The Rev. Kelechi Timothy Francis 

      10 years ago from Rivers State, Nigeria

      Many people these days prefer to do eyeservice rather than high service. God has called us to become who we were destined to be from the beginning. In as much as we respect men, we should learn to fear and honour God: Not the fear that is filled with torment but the fear that says - He is so so awesome, it makes my head spin!
