LOOK AT IT THIS WAY

Sin put you in prison for life!

Nothing to do but think!

Small window up high, stale air

To breathe, tap water to drink.

.

.

Hopeless there, four walls to see

Just two meals a day!  What crime?

Jesus comes!  Impossible!  But

Offers to do your time!

.

.

You stubbornly reject His offer,

Sadly He goes His way,

The gimmick, what does He get out of this?

You close your heart and stay!

.

.

Or this way:

.

.

Sins penalty, “sins wages, death!”

Jesus will take your place!

“Yeah, right!  What does He get out of it?”

Nothing!  It is only God’s grace!

.

.

Grace?  Of course you do not understand,

Why would anyone die?

Motive questioned?  Consider well,

“Grace, His love will not lie!”

.

.

Cannot trust yourself?  All hope is gone?

“Eternal life?  What is that?”

Dream world!  Come out of the clouds!

You are heaven, just way too pat!

.

.

Jesus promised!  Enough for me!

My hope is heaven’s shore!

Anticipation sheer delight!

With Him forevermore!

.

.

“Grace, God’s grace, grace that pardons and cleanses within!

Grace, God’s grace, grace that is greater than all our sin!
