Faith’s Dilemma

From Romans 7:14-15:  “For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am of the flesh, sold into slavery under sin.  I do not understand my own actions.  For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.”

Even after salvation

Evil gathers temptation


Satan never giving up

His truth always false, made-up


Man continues to wrestle

Sin looks for place to nestle


Feelings of condemnation

Life bears guilty fixation


Inner conflict tears apart

Jesus speaks truth to each heart


Faith’s dilemma overcome

Favored, steady, beating drum


Savior’s blood wipes sin away

Blessed by love, trust never sways


God’s grace eternally flows

His constant love never slows


Father shall never reject

Those who faithfully connect


False promises never blind

Truth of Scripture filling minds

From Romans 8:1-2:  “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”

  1. It is indeed a strange dilemma that we sin even after salvation. But salvation is not a moment, but a journey we all take with Jesus at our side. God will help us ignore the devil’s influence if we have faith in Him. Love your poem!
