ONLY A SINNER, SAVED BY GRACE

Tumultuous my thoughts as I waken!

What was that dream?  Cannot conceive!

Satanic thoughts completely capricious,

Tormentor to deceive!

.

.

But my Lord and Master defeats him!

Satanic host born to lose!

Forgiveness is Jesus’ signature!

Satan has such a short fuse!

.

.

Doomed to lose!  He can never win!

On the cross Jesus declared,

“This day in paradise…with me!”

Forgiveness, Jesus dared…

.

.

That thief had no chance to prove himself!

Simply, “Remember me.”

One desperate cry for forgiveness,

Christ heard decidedly!

.

.

“This day…” thief’s request was granted!

Became sin for Him there,

“The wages of sin is death!”  Both died.

Has ever such love declared–

.

.

Forgiveness!  Sin’s bleeding sorrow

Recognize from all sin,

Delivered, set free, bound for Heaven!

Experience cleansing within!

.

.

This thug with no way to prove himself.

What is to prove?  Grace is free!

Sinners, despicable sinners all!

Did He not die for me?

.

.

Then can you admit you are a sinner,

Yes, sinner but saved by grace!

Get to Heaven, see refuse up there

Then see the look on your face.

.

.

Another thief rolling in splendor there!

That was his livelihood.

Had to steal to eat, you know,

Had no chance to be good.

.

.

“Without Holiness none can see God!”

But is this not imputed?

We are made holy by His death!

Nothing within us suited!

.

.

Are we then licensed to sin at will?

“God forbid,” Paul cried!

Take pleasure in sin, you are still a sinner!

Why was He crucified?

.

.

Sam Cox, Crucified with Christ!

Thank you, Jesus!  06.02.09
