Corporate Holiness

That spark of light, or fitful flash of flame,
When it ignites, a room of dark is tamed.
And Christian faith – illumined by God’s word,
Has power to stay God’s wrath when it is stirred.
For even Lot – called holy by the Lord,
In Sodom brought delay of judgment’s sword.
For by that man who looks to God in faith,
Jehovah’s hand of wrath is held in place.
The children of that man are holy then,
To God above, and are brought close to Him.
As holy, then, salvation not declared,
But close to Him and of His people there.
This is the place where sinful man comes clean:
Jehovah’s grace which flows from you and me.
Do not take lightly what’s been given you,
This holy light which in your life shines through.
It pushes back the darkness of our sin.
Do not be lax but take advantage then,
Of this great might – God’s holiness endued,
Ignite that light in those most close to you.
