THE REAL MEANING OF LIFE.
To succeed where the sons of Adam failed,
Is to be patterned (1)
after the one they nailed.
Bodily perfect Adam listened to his wife's voice,
His refusal to be Spirit-created was his choice.
For willing obedience immortality
(2) is the reward,
Glorious spirit life in heaven in peaceful accord.
Having suffered faithfully in misery-causing flesh,
A spirit "body" (3)
is given, not life on earth afresh.
So store up in heaven your spirit body now,
Reject unclean spirits, give to God your vow.
His disciplines create spirits carrying out His Will,
Refined like gold among this world's pot clay hill.
God creates our flesh first, and then our spirit,
Using Christ's "sword" to refine or abandon it.
