I was scared, didn’t want to make another promise I wouldn’t keep.
Guilt struck me each time I tried and failed, what was I to reap?
Why such a difficult path?
If He willingly gave His life
Why couldn’t I automatically shine like light?
Well I played smart this time, I had a plan B.
I threw in some eggs, and let some be.
I couldn’t trust the process of “just believing,”
I had seen men die believing this saying.
I carved out an escape route,
I set out plans to activate when I got stuck
And He is no where to pull out my foot.
I was oblivious of the real me.
Little did I know what it meant to be saved by grace.
I had no idea what the term “finished works” entailed.
How can believing be termed ‘just’
when it had the power to save the lost.
I found Love in its pure state,
Righteous is now my new state.
Love bought me, and I can never be bought back!
This is about Him, the man Christ Jesus.
The One who loved me when I didn’t know me,
The One who gave His life for me when I hadn’t found me.
The One who swore never to be angry with me,
The One who took guilt and fear away from me.
The One whose Words I can bank on,
The One whose Words I can stand on.
The One who freely gave,
The One who graciously saved.
