Grace is . . . Grace


This month at Central, we will be taking time to learn more about Grace. This morning, I thought I would share a poem I wrote a few years ago about God’s Grace as an introduction to our theme. If you are in the Tuscaloosa area, come worship with us as we learn more about Grace this month.

This is Grace

Satan is a powerful enemy,

His mission is but to deceive.

He wants me to ignore God’s promise,

In grace he wants me not to believe.


God has promised Satan his future,

Hell is the cell of my foe.

God longs for all men to obey truth,

So to hell I need not go.


The price of sin is death say scripture,

This truly did cause me alarm.

But the free gift of God in Christ Jesus,

Is life eternal not eternal harm.


I came to the cross of the Lord Jesus,

By faith in efficacious blood.

My sin God removes by the Savior,

I’m made pure by the crimson flood.


The tomb found empty gives promise,

That one day resurrected I’ll be.

No hold has the grave nor does Satan,

Over the promise between God and me.
