Soldier of Love (Poem)

Updated on November 11, 2015

The solid foundation laid by Jesus Christ,

Is that a man would for his friends give his life,

Love undefiled, fadeless, and pure;

Nevertheless, unconditional, and sure,

A new command I give unto you,

The way I love you, that you love others, too,

By this shall men know that you are my disciples indeed,

By the love that is born of an incorruptible seed,

I am a soldier of love in the army of life

Avoiding controversies which do render strife,

Loving others inspite of opinions, race, prejudice or feelings

In a world caught up in material dealings,

Love at times needs pain to give it birth

Once born in the heart is a medicinal mirth,

True in all of its endeavors to be

Agape love has the power to set you completely free,

I am a soldier of love in the war against hate

It is the command of my King, it is the royal mandate.
