Divine Grace

Grace Free Unmerited

By the grace of God,
I am what I am . . .
His mercy and favor
is why I do what I can.

My words are idle,
they hold no worth
if they’re not from Him
they fall to the earth.

I labor in vain,
all my works are dust
without His grace
they’ll turn to rust.

I am nothing,
without God’s grace
I haven’t the power
to finish the race.

There’s nothing I do,
nothing I can be . . .
without divine grace
abundantly living in me!

~~~~~~~~~~~
1 Corinthians 15:10
King James Version
“But by the grace of God I am what I am:
and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain;
but I laboured more abundantly than they all:
yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Pierced ~

Pierced ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Pierced by our sins,
afflicted with their pain
the Son of God dies
for our eternal gain.

Crushed and rejected,
bearer of our sickness
His stripes are a display
of grace and forgiveness.

Stricken and cut down,
all our iniquities taken
the Healer of humanity
hangs dying and forsaken.

Bruised but not broken,
Jesus lives  on today . . .
but the world from Him
still turns  the other way.

Pierced and afflicted,
for eternities gain
Jesus nailed to the cross
Oh, think of the pain!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4-6
King James Version

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”
