Saving Grace

From Romans 5:1-2:  “Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.”

From ancient garden, crying out

Man’s sinful seeds scatter and sprout

 

Father’s wrath consumes with His fire

Suffering journey to hellfire

 

Spiritually dead from God

Lives walk in darkness, always flawed

 

Holy tablets proclaim God’s law

Sin’s frozen nature never thaws

 

Judgement follows life’s trespasses

Sticking like thickest molasses

 

Lord’s saving grace seeks better way

Messiah opens new causeway

 

Jesus steps into this abyss

Unselfish love shall never miss

 

Hopeless man’s eyes can’t turn away

Drawn to grim, cruel cross, Christ pays

 

Jesus offers Himself instead

Faith follows this new Living Bread

 

Father’s amazing grace enters

Salvation breathes life’s new center

From Romans 5:18-19:  “Therefore just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.  For just as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so through the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.”
