SNAKES – SALVATION

We have nothing to fear from the Kingsnake!

Rattlesnakes worst enemy!

Fact is I fear no snake at all!

Permit them territory!

.

.

On a time, one made me its habitat!

Coiled self around my arm!

Instinctively knew its sorrowful plight!

Knew it could do me no harm!

.

.

A roadside berm was its waterloo!

Its slippery, sandy, sloop,

Had wandered down from its grassy lair!

No way to climb, just grope!

.

.

Grope and slide until it found my arm,

Pressure there I glanced down,

I could sense then its pitiful plight!

A smile replaced my frown!

.

.

Felt its gaze, like, “Pity poor me!”

Requesting a helping hand!

Showed a friend nearby who yelped in fear!

Carried it up to grassland.

.

.

I felt then, like, world conqueror,

As it slowly slithered away!

Turned its head once, like, saying thank you!

“You are welcome!”  All I could say.

.

.

Once we have conquered our fears, it is like,

The world lies beneath our feet.

For the world is then subservient!

To Him who rules replete.

.

.

Yet, another meaning is to be found,

The world of flesh overcome,

Overcome the world within ourselves!

This needed for saints, each one!

.

.

The world, the flesh, the Devil, we see

Put down beneath our feet!

This is the world that confronts God’s child!

We look away from to defeat!

.

.

Look away from, look to Christ on the cross!

The crucified Christ died but lives!

To lift each Son of man from the death,

His Salvation He gives!

.
