Salvation - Poem by Leslie Alexis

Salvation:
(Eternity in Heaven with God)
Salvation given for free
To me:
Me?
I still don’t fully understand this.
I see me every day:
My thoughts,
My actions,
They’re not perfect – they mainly disgust me.
I try
And fail.
In me, there’s no hope.

This I was,
A sinner
I sin without knowing:
I sin knowingly.
I was made captive to sin.
Sin had me caught in his trap
Sin’s grip on me was strong
Sin and I didn’t want to let go.

God’s love is bigger than sin.

God
Oh:
My God!
He saw me caught up in sin,
Saw me dark and filthy
Saw me: unworthy
Saw me,
And loved me.

Grace abounds.

God’s grace:
Takes me through life’s race.
A race that in myself,
I run in the wrong direction.

God’s guidance:

His word – for food
The Holy Spirit – A friend
His son, through his life – The perfect example
God gave and provided all that is required to sustain.

God’s gift

Jesus!
Oh,
How I love that name.
God’s son: Perfect, Obedient, and Sinless –
Man’s hope, our only chance of something worthwhile!
Saw my needs,
Came and provided,
Provided with his life -
Such love.
The laws, He kept.
His Father’s request:
His heart embodied.
My sins, He carried.
My place, He took.
Did it all, and at the end,
He gave me a gift:
Salvation!
With it:
A sinner has forgiveness – He knew I could never be perfect.
(When I fall, he picks me up)
A sinner has hope;
Hope of a life worth living.
Hope of a better place than this wretched earth.

My part:
To believe,
And Love.
Love the God that first love me
Love his son.

Jesus, I just want to tell you thanks.
Help me through this life
Help me to run the right race
Help me; I want to see your face.
Life in you, and for you, is life truly.
Jesus I love you!
