This is Grace


This coming month our lessons at Central will focus on the Revolutionary Grace that God supplies in Christ. As I was previewing some material, I recalled this poem I wrote in 2012.

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.
