Because of His Grace…

Because of His Grace I live.
Because of His death on the cross.
Because of His conquering of death.
Because He lives,
I live.

I live in a battle
Against the sin
That still wants to reign.
I depend on Grace,
Because without Grace
I could never win.

But I have to be reminded
That Grace never,
Never,
Denies,
Ignores,
Condescends,
Overlooks
Sin.
Never.

Grace confronts sin.
Grace battles sin.
God’s Grace for His own
Brought His Son
To the Cross.
Sin bears a curse
And the Son of Man
Wore the crown of guilt,
Because of Grace,
And Grace confronts sin.

God does not,
never,
Deny,
Ignore,
Condescend,
Overlook
Sin.
Never.

Grace has eyes to see
What others would rather deny.
Grace sees the sin,
And also sees hope in Him
Who is able to forgive.

Grace does not ignore sin,
Grace grieves and
Brings us to our knees
In intercessory prayer
For us,
For them.

Grace does not condescend
With Sin.
Grace speaks the Truth,
Unmasks the evil deeds.
It brings God’s Light
Into the darkest room.

Grace does not overlook sin,
It begs for forgiveness,
It restores,
It changes.
Grace,
Once it meets us,
Doesn’t leave us
unchanged.

Because of His Grace I live.
Because of His death on the cross.
Because of His conquering of death.
Because He lives,
I live.

  1. Beauitul. I especially liked this part:

    “Grace has eyes to see
    What others would rather deny.
    Grace sees the sin,
    And also sees hope in Him
    Who is able to forgive.”

    Oh, how I love Him that gives hope to the hopless!

    Much love to you Becky!
