11-22-14 Slave to Sin

slave to sin

If you are not a Christ-born child of God,

There’s nowhere left to go, no one to help,

For sin has got you bound and scarred and flawed,

A hopeless slave in debt, the devil’s whelp.

No matter how you try to do just good,

The chains of sin are fast around your neck,

But freedom’s found between three nails and wood:

The blood of Jesus saves you from sin’s beck.

Just give your life to Christ, the choice is yours,

And let the Holy Spirit show the way,

And if you fall, repent, God’s mercy soars;

You now belong to Christ, in him you pray.

When Jesus died for you he took your sin,

So live for him, my brother, now begin!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus answered them,

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

John 8:34 KJV

9-28-14 Under Grace

Now that you’ve come from that rugged cross

And left your sins up there on Calvary,

Now that the sting of death is at a loss,

And Jesus is the only face you see,

No longer are you subject to the law

That governed over Adam until now;

No longer sin has trapped you in it’s maw,

No longer made you slave behind the plow.

You are now under grace that won’t accuse,

Regenerating Christ inside of you;

If you should sin it’s only if you choose,

For Satan has no power to pursue.

You’ve come down off the cross under God’s grace;

Christ died for you that you might win the race.

 ~~~~~

For sin shall not have dominion over you:

for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:14 KJV
