When Our Immunity in Christ is Strong

(This poem was written in response to some things that were going on at work. Many residents in a nursing home had the flu. A couple of them died, and many had compromised immune systems afterwards. How important it is to keep ourselves “well” in the Lord.  “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.” Pro_24:10)
When our immunity in Christ is strong..
When we are in the deepest surrender to know only Him
All is at rest.
What can go wrong?
When our immunity in Christ is strong..
By loving, by knowing, seeking, and praising Him.
When loving the brethren, and doing good.
What can go wrong?

When our immunity in Christ is strong..
What evil force can come against us
When we are deeply rooted in Him
What can go wrong?

When our immunity in Christ is strong..
What can deeply sway us, shift us, move us
But only cause us to stand, when He is within.
What can go wrong?

When our immunity in Christ is strong..
What can make us stumble, or even grumble
When all we know is Him.
What can go wrong?

When our immunity in Christ is strong..
And He and I are ONE.
I in Him and He in me, together we have overcome the Evil One.
What can go wrong?

Who is firmer than this foundation?
It is the enemy who will be wrong when we prove who is stronger.
Christ in you, the prince of peace, is all and all.
For the glory of the Lord I will stand.
