Sanctification (Acrostic Sonnet) 10/9/21

Salvation came first on that cruel cross
As Jesus took upon your total sins;
Now when you gave your life to Him across
Committing all you have, new life begins.
The Spirit of Christ Jesus lives in you,
In Him you have your being and desire,
For you are being formed and shaped anew
Into the image of the Son through fire.
Cease walking in the flesh, now Spirit bound,
Abide within the word and walk in love;
The crucible of life is so profound
If you surrender all to God above.
     O child! You're not alone! You're ne'er apart!
     No force can separate you from God's heart.
