We’re inspired in many ways

And this brings joy to our lives;

When a genuine soul touches our heart

And by good example makes us wise.

We can read, we can travel

But only one book will transform…

It’s the bible with the words of life

With answers as to why we’re born.

It’s to know that something deeper

Is on the horizon indeed,

When our character is challenged

By those who take the lead.

A true leader will encourage

But never with manipulation,

As he has the best interests at heart

Without control or intimidation.

We’re inspired to reach new levels

When a loving caring soul,

Puts the interests of others above his own

So much fruit will unfold.

The most inspiring human being

Was Jesus Christ our Lord,

And His pure example and inspired teachings

Came to earth to bring a sword.

A sword to divide right from wrong

And to challenge false perceptions;

To cut the roots that don’t bear fruit

And to expose lies and deception.

A brilliant example of purity

And of everything that’s right,

But done with a humble spirit

To reveal God’s genuine light.

He was obedient to the Father

With a steadfast plan and vision,

To reconcile us back to God

As He understood His mission.

He was firm and bold when required

Yet gentle as a lamb;

Was gracious and very merciful

And followed God’s commands.

He took the nails and was crucified

So from sin we are set free;

He was resurrected unto eternal life

So God’s promises we see.

Jesus should be our inspiration

Since we know He lives forever,

And has promised us eternity

Where the second death we’ll see never.

But it is for those who sincerely repent

To understand their sinful ways,

And when Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior

Where in our heart and soul will stay.
