Tag Archives: By Grace Though Faith

On Christ Alone ~

On Christ alone,
my mind is set,
so closer to Him,
my heart can get.

For He is the One,
who has saved me,
giving me the hope,
for what I can’t see.

In Christ alone,
my faith clings,
for by His grace,
salvation brings.

He is my Savior,
God’s eternal plan,
His love filled in,
the empty span.

On Christ alone,
my redemption lies,
my eyes He keeps . . ,
fixated on the prize!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation
in any other: for there is none
other name under heaven
given among men,
whereby we must be saved.

Jesus Came To Give ~

Jesus came to give,
to all abundant life
to deliver us from
work’s toil and strife.

And so He became,
the Door to the Way
for He saw how some
led His flock astray.

Jesus knew the thieves,
would rob and steal
His sheep from Him
so to destroy and kill.

And so He became,
the Good Shepherd
to settle with the robbers
salvation’s record.

Jesus came to save,
His sheep from the wolves
so they could recognize
the sound of their hooves!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:8-12

All that ever came before me
are thieves and robbers:
but the sheep did not hear them.

I am the door: by me if any man
enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out,
and find pasture.

The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might have
it more abundantly.

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth
his life for the sheep.

But he that is an hireling,
and not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not,
seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth
the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf
catcheth them,
and scattereth the sheep.

Matthew 7:15

Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they
are ravening wolves.

It’s God Way ~

It’s God way,
or the ways of man
it’s the wide road
or the narrow span.

It’s a spiritual life,
or one that’s carnal
it’s a heart of flesh
or one that’s normal.

It’s through our faith,
or through work’s toil
it’s the grace of Jesus
or the things that spoil.

It’s things that are good,
or those that are evil
it’s pursuing righteousness
or following the devil.

It’s God’s way,
for no other one . . .
will lead us to the Life
or the Way to His Son!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:30

As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in him.

All Or Nothing ~

It’s all or nothing,
there’s no in-between
to believe in the things
that cannot be seen.

It takes an act of faith,
to step out each day
and follow the Life . . .
of the Truth and the Way.

It’s not about our works,
but all about His grace
and a trust in God’s Word
our souls need to embrace.

It takes a heart of flesh,
one that is contrite
to see past the darkness
into His saving Light.

It’s all or nothing,
a decision we all must make
it’s faith by grace or by works . . .
that’ll decide our eternal fate!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Not of works,
lest any man should boast.

My Eyes Are Set On ~

I have my eyes set on,
being with my Lord
it is something . . .
I joyfully look towards.

It’s my earthly goal,
one I will achieve
for it’s by my faith
in His grace, I believe.

I have my eyes set on,
an eternal destiny
how it’s going to be
perfectly heavenly.

It’s a destination,
I’m faithfully going for
for it will be a haven
of peace forevermore.

I have my eyes set on,
where I keep my heart . . .
and there isn’t anything
that can pry the two apart!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift
of God: Not of works, lest
any man should boast.

Matthew 6:21

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

One Simple Step ~

One simple step,
we all need to take
one timely one
we all need to make.

For us to find,
in Jesus our freedom
so we can enter into
His Father’s kingdom.

All that it takes,
is a single little seed
and the grace of Jesus
is all we will need.

For us to be,
saved and forgiven
we need to have faith
in a Savior risen.

Taking one simple step,
of faith in His grace
will enroll you into . . .
the good and faithful race!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Sticky Note From God ~05.22.22~

Ephesians 2:8-9


The Gospel Truth ~

May the Gospel Truth,
remain in you . . .
may you always stay
to what is true.

May no one take,
the Truth from you away
may to false teachings
you opt not to obey.

May the Gospel Truth,
never depart from you
may you keep to the Way
you believe is true.

May no other gospel,
take you off course
may you always discern
from where the source.

May the Gospel truth,
keep you engaged . . .
may to those untrue
you not be enslaved!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:4-5

And that because of false
brethren unawares brought in,
who came in privily to spy out
our liberty which we have in
Christ Jesus, that they might
bring us into bondage:

To whom we gave place by
subjection, no, not for an hour;
that the truth of the gospel
might continue with you.

Gospel Mutations ~

The Gospel of Christ,
has many mutations
preached by different
denominations.

The gospel of works,
it’s all about you . . .
not about what Jesus
was sent here to do.

The gospel of moralism,
is all about being good
but, it is just another
salvation falsehood.

The gospel of prosperity,
is about being made rich
not in the blood of Christ
but by some get rich pitch.

The gospel of self help,
again it’s back to you
not what Jesus . . .
came here to do!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:4

For if he that cometh preacheth
another Jesus, whom we have
not preached, or if ye receive
another spirit, which ye have
not received, or another gospel,
which ye have not accepted,
ye might well bear with him.

A New Life In Christ~

A new life in Christ,
works needed no more
now grace and love
opens heaven’s door.

For all things old,
no longer acceptable
once Jesus became . . .
our sin’s receptacle.

A new life in Christ,
death to the law
no longer under
it’s working claw.

For Jesus died,
to set us all free
so under bondage
we’d no longer be.

A new life in Christ,
a matter of the heart
a gift to each of us . . .
only God can impart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Romans 10:10

For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation.

Working Your Way to Heaven ~

Some people they think,
because they are good
to heaven they’ll get . . .
as all nice people should.

They say their deeds,
are their sure way in
how their good acts
will atone their sin.

Some people they feel,
it’s up to them to obtain
their way into heaven
on a performance campaign.

Their credentials point to,
all of their good doings
and the actions of . . .
their own choosing.

But, Jesus I don’t believe,
there’s any acts we can do
to earn our salvation . . .
other than faith in You.

For it is by Your Life,
Your blood, grace and love
that we even can get . . .
to heaven above!
