THE REAL ISSUE
I don’t think that the issue is ‘law’ verses ‘grace’;
In judging myself, I have come to this place:
There’s an understanding about His Love,
that can never be brought to ‘account’;
This is a ‘proven’ a ‘cast in stone’,
not to change for any amount.
When I decide, thou foolishly,
to do anything that is harmful to me,
I cannot expect Him to join Me there;
That’s not a part of His watchful care.
He’d then have to bless the thing that He’s cursed;
the thing that He knew would injure my worth;
His plan for me is His victory;
(Law’s transgression was nailed to His Cross!);
With ‘that’ judgement in place, I now have to face:
My heritage is to suffer no loss.
A debate turned into ‘law’ verses ‘grace’,
because I’d rather have a ‘free ride’...
than prove that His payment wasn’t in vain
and say, “Either way, I am still justified!”
Shakey ground, ‘that’; Could be complacency...
Rather than taking responsibility;
Because, if you believed that, you really would...
be trying to do what He said that you could.
You can’t have one without the other;
A new creation won’t look for another...
reason to stay in their own foolish way;
And, not complete the price His obedience paid.
With the knowledge of this, you can now decide:
Will I take the instruction or continue to hide?
