Battle for Righteousness

The struggle is ongoing--
The war rages on!
Where is my peace
From these hurtful blows?

Perhaps if I linger and stay away
From the battle –
Away from the fray,
Will I be okay?

Listen, oh listen
And do not stay
Hidden from battle.
You’ll not be okay!

The demons are watching
To snatch you away.
They want you to linger
So they can prey.

Quick! Put on your armor,
Lift up your shield.
The battle-- press forward
God’s at your heel.

The war is ongoing
Until He returns
To conquer all evil
Then peace will be won.

The struggle is over
This prize will be yours --
To enter His presence free of sin
Sanctified and holy – just like Him.
