So, Orpah left visibly and spiritually,
And under grace many Orpahs there are gone back:
Some retreat from day one, some others much later,
Some exit both visibly and spiritually,
Others leave spiritually but visibly seen:
All for want of roots, lack of heavenly vision!
So, there are ‘old’ Orpahs back to the world out there;
And then ‘new’ Orpahs lost to the world-in- the-church!
Which is why, God’s infallible Word do caution:
“Examine yourself whether you’re still in the faith.”
Like Ruth consecrated, heavenward we need be!
Of the Orpahs out there the Church must reach out to.
And this mix-of-world-and-church Orpahs in the Church;
These who think they can go Canaan path ‘with the world’;
These wanting to ‘make’ the Church part of hell’s broad-way;
Sweeping their number; clouding the gospel in minds,
And making the way of truth evil spoken of,
May we by way of truth that frees point to the Cross!
