As sinners we’re prized by both the Father and the Son,
Who saved us from our sin, (1 Peter 1:3)
and by the Holy Spirit,
who continues to refine us from within. (Ezekiel 36:24-29), (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14)
at such a great a cost; (1 Corinthians 6:20)
And is resolve in his intention,
both to seek and save the lost. (Ezekiel 34:16)
with an everlasting love,
and displays his steadfast faithfulness,
while strengthening from above.
That you’d be sanctified. (1 Thessalonians 4: 3)
But that won’t be finished (Philippians 1:6)
until he comes back for his Bride. (Revelation 21:9)
Just as He intends,
And find assurance we’re equipped (Hebrews 13:20-21)
by the spirit that He sends. (Galatians 4:6)
comforts our wandering souls; (Ephesians 3:16)
A reminder no time escapes,
when He’s not in control. (Colossians 1:15-20)
His approval comes from trying our very best;
It is only through His finished work,
where we can find true rest.
no longer do we walk like we used to.
We’ve put off our former lives,
and clothed ourselves anew! (Ephesians 4:22-24)
Perfect, spotless, pure. (Ephesians 5:27)
The spilling of His crimson blood,
has made forgiveness sure. (1 John 1:7)
Sealed by His blood. (Romans 5:9)
It washed away our sin;
Oh sweet crimson, cleansing flood!
What a tragically beautiful thought.
Let us rest in His finished work,
and praise Him as we ought.
