“First Things First in Rhyming Verse”: a brilliant expression of pieces that inspires everyone with the Lord’s grace as it brings godly counsel into their hearts. “First Things First in Rhyming Verse” is the creation of published author Richard W. Elijah Jr., an ordained minister and the assistant pastor of a small church in the Kansas City metropolitan area. He hopes to impassion men, women, and children to become saved and form a relationship of salvation with God.

Elijah Jr. shares, “First Things First in Rhyming Verse, as the name implies, is a collection of biblically based poems designed to highlight various topics, issues, and beliefs foundational to the Christian faith. The primary function of this work is to bring praise, honor, and glory to God for in him we live and move and have our being.

“It serves to give godly counsel to the people of God because as he says in Hosea 4:6, ‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.’ Although we live in a fallen world full of trouble, there are many hardships that come as a result of our ignorance and disobedience to the Word of God. This book seeks to rectify some of that. It is intended to instruct in the ways of godliness and righteousness and encourage the people of God to live holy before him thereby avoiding some of the unnecessary pains of life.

“This collection also serves, in part, as a way to introduce to the Lord those who do not yet know him and hopefully persuade them to want to enter into a saving relationship with him.

“Although no substitute for scripture itself, these various poems can be looked to time and time again as sources of instruction, inspiration, and encouragement.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Richard W. Elijah Jr.’s new book is a heavenly inspiration filled with wisdom and encouragement to begin or further a holy lifestyle with God while on guard against the struggles of life.
