From James 2:1-13
Our own corrupted desires would seek
To elevate an earthly king for us to stand,
to take God’s place, or ourselves to enthrone
in that place only He is worthy to command.
Yet even this desire God fulfills in a man,
His only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ
That under Jesus our heavenly king,
All being subject in humility can bring
our needs and desires to be consummated,
our wills and wants then so consecrated
can breathe in the spirit of true freedom
from man’s tyranny and self’s deception.
Let us then look for a better way to
Honor in equal right both rich and poor,
The one not pander or curry favor,
Those in need not dishonor or ignore,
But seeing the Almighty’s fire burning
In each one’s eyes grant them due dignity
That all my rest securely in the hands
Of a merciful God and grateful mankind.
We evoke the battle for the rights of all men and women not to be subject to the tyranny or prejudice of the powerful in society, that there are rights granted by Almighty God as His Creatures operating within the constraints of His Creation. When we work according to His will and keep covenant with each other according to God’s Law, we may enjoy peace among mankind and enter into eternal sabbath rest with Father, Son and Holy Spirit by His blood shed once and forever.
