Holding Us Fast

From Romans 8:38-39:  “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Burdened with sin-filling guilt

Questions about salvation

Worn down, feeling overwhelmed

Life struggling with temptation


Surrounded by sin’s gloom and doom

Meager actions not enough

Salvation ignores life’s works

Grace shining through evil’s bluff


Remember God’s faithful truths

Choosing us, always with us

Spirit marks each with new life

His love, hope’s guaranteed plus


Father’s Word holding us fast

Always our righteous anchor

Steadies weary, stumbling steps

Answers doubts, quiets rancor


Jesus pays our debts in full

Forgiven, transformed, renewed

According to His mercy

Taking our place, flesh subdued

From Titus 3:4-5:  “But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.”
