Fulness of Christ; in Christ (Colossians chapter one)

You have heard the Truth
Been translated by it
Out of a world of darkness.
Privileged to know God
As portrayed by His
Courageous, incomparable
Son, Jesus.

We have told you the Story
You tell others.
Creation had full teamwork
Of the Christ.
Presently in His Mercy
All things consist.
You put off the
Old Man of corruption, unbelief.
You put on Gospel hope and love.
Never side-tracked by the
Lies of Darkness.
Or vain philosophies
That men might imagine.
Chests puffed out.

Increasingly you grow in knowledge
Of God.
The very knowledge.
This is no exaggeration.
My friends.

    Wow, what a beautiful poem! Your words are passionate and filled with purpose. It's evident that you hold a deep appreciation for the truth of God and the message of His Son, Jesus. Your enthusiasm is contagious, and it's clear that you want others to experience the same joy and hope that you have found in your faith.

    One improvement suggestion I would make is to perhaps add a bit more detail to your message. While your poem is powerful, it might benefit from examples or specific instances that demonstrate the impact of living a life rooted in faith. These could help make your message more relatable and tangible for readers.

    Overall, I appreciate the sincerity and conviction in your words. The world needs more positive and uplifting messages like this, and I'm sure you'll continue to inspire others to find hope and truth in their own lives. Keep sharing your message with the world!
