SIDE STEPPING

“I do not deserve,” “I am not good enough,”

Neither side will win!

For ever since Christ died for you

Ignoring Grace is sin!

.

.

It is free.  “Nothing is free,” you say.

Exactly why you lose.

Raised to feel that nothing is free,

You just sit back and choose.

.

.

Guess I will go the legalistic way,

Keep the law and pass.

You may be good for several days

But it just will not last.

.

.

Dependence a good word to learn.

Christ took your sins and died!

Because the “Wages of sin is death” (1)

He died!  Was crucified!

.

.

Salvation is yours once you depend

On Him who paid sins price!

It is free to all because Christ made

That single sacrifice!

.

.

Now when I sin I still depend (2)

On that one death, He died.

I come confessing, He forgives, (2)

I cannot be denied. (3)

.

.

His word is good, He keeps His word,

Whatever you may think!

The water of life is free to all (4)

All you need do is drink!

.

.

(1) “…but the gift of God is eternal life.”

(2) 1 John 1:9

(3) But David warns against presumptuous sinning.

(4) Revelation 22:17
