Aren’t We One Of The Ten Lepers? But, Which One? - Poem by Dr John Celes

Sin is like leprosy of soul!
Ingrained in our hearts and minds is sinfulness;
Our sinful nature is congenital;
Death of the soul is the wages for our sins.

Yet, we can win the war against devils
Like how our Saviour Jesus Christ had done!
Death can’t hold us from rising as He did,
And enter Heaven with a pure soul!

By Baptism, we’ve been made clean;
But sin enters our soul dislodging grace;
God forgives us and heals us when we plead;
Do we return and thank the Lord?

Sin is contagious akin leprosy;
While leprosy destroys body, sin ruins soul;
We live a life ostracized from our God;
But all this rot stems from our own dear faults!

Church laws advise us to do confessions;
Reconcile with the Maker, obtain grace;
Offer your thanks and praises to the Lord;
Pray and ask His help for staying holy!
