Grace is not just a 5-letter word!
Consider this reality,
That a tiny bird does not buy or sell,
But is eating constantly!
Even that snake coiled about my arm,
Seemed to know that I would befriend!
It did nothing to ingratiate
But I helped it in the end!
King Snake I think that God loves it, too.
Rattlesnakes worst enemy!
Friend to man! I truly believe!
One received friendship from me. (*)
Dolphin, how can any not accept,
Its toothy, friendly, smile?
And thank God for its protection from
That shark that would compile!
Its multiple sins against everything
That swims the ocean deep,
It is not a friend to anything
Satan developed that creep!
Even that monstrous whale that cavorts
And will not harm anything
Leaping high from its ocean depths
Hear it pleasantly sing!
Grace will not disrupt but is magnified,
By animals, by friends!
Show love and friendship instead of hate!
Message of Grace contends!
God’s Grace, love we do not deserve!
Should be so glad, relieved!
We crucified but He by his Grace
Saves all who would receive!
And accept! We may in spite of sins!
Grace that pardons and forgives!
Promising life forever above and
With Jesus continually lives!
Grace is it free? Of course it is free!
But know it is costly, too!
You pay with your life! A life you give
New life He gives back to you!
One offering we bring, offering He bought!
His life, can ours make a dent?
Yes, if we give our lives in return!
To Him, the Heaven-Sent!
(*) Sure thing! Ask me!
