The Journey From Compulsion


The redemption of God is beyond forgiveness 
And insurance against eternal separation
From the God who shares His life with the known.

Redemption creeps from the changed heart
And crawls to capture the swinging emotions
And caterpillars through the chained mind.

Redemption once instant then works by stealth
What was by compulsion becomes voluntary
The desire changing to labour for righteousness.

The exchanged heart gains new cravings
The forgiveness, the new status begins to work
From compulsion until it looks like Christ! .
