Old Satan was a volunteer;
One of the very first.
He brought temptation to the world.
As example, hes the worst

Now Moses did not want to lead.
He asked God to choose another.
He told the Lord He could not speak;
So God volunteered his brother.

Then Moses gave to God His life,
Volunteering to obey.
Thus the great I Am was with him;
He led Moses all the way.

Goliath was a giant strong,
A great and mighty foe.
When no one else would volunteer,
Young David said, Ill go.

The rich young ruler came to Christ
For eternal life to hear,
But all the riches that he had
He refused to volunteer.

Our Savior volunteered His life
To take away our sin.
By His death and resurrection
The victory Hed win.

I pray to be a volunteer,
To offer every part
Of all the things that I hold dear,
To give God my whole heart

Good poem - clever, creative and with a good ending, too. Like it very much.
