Exciting Exhortations

Paul penned the Corinthian church,
"You are rich and reign in God's kingdom!
We are fools for Christ;
He's given you much wisdom!

But if you think you're standing firm,
Take heed lest you fall;
One part of the body shouldn't say,
'I don't need you at all!'

If, together, you prophesy 
And a seeker comes among you,
They will be convicted of their sin,
Exclaiming, 'God is really among you!'

The ministry of the Spirit 
That brings righteousness to us
Through the new covenant,
Is abundantly glorious!

If anyone is in Christ,
The old has gone, the new has come!
Thanks be to God for the
Indescribable gift of His Son!"
