The Gospel of Grace ~

The Gospel of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and by faith alone . . .
I believe only through Jesus’ blood
the sins of mankind are atoned.

I believe grace cleanses,
the effects of evil and sin
I believe Jesus our very souls
died so them He could win.

I believe grace pardons,
the guilty and shamed face
I believe Jesus upon Himself
took the brunt of our disgrace.

I believe grace heals,
the hurt, the pain, the ache
I believe Jesus our hearts
can soften, reform and remake.

I believe grace gives rest,
to the depressed and friendless
I believe Jesus came to save
all who are lonely and hopeless.

I believe in the Gospel of grace,
by faith and nothing more . . .
I believe God’s gift of grace
redeems, heals and restores!

No Rocket-Scientist Needed ~

It doesn’t take,
a rocket-scientist
it doesn’t take
the sciences.

Faith is just,
an act of trust
it’s believing
God loves us.

It doesn’t take,
a philosopher
it doesn’t take
an astrologer.

Faith is easier,
than you think
for grace is . . .
the saving-link.

It doesn’t take,
an anthropologist
it doesn’t take
a theologist.

Faith is believing,
Jesus died for you
faith is grace . . .
pure and true!

The Greatest Gift ~

The greatest Gift,
that you can give
is the One . . .
that sin forgives.

For, it’s full of grace,
joy, love and Light
when it’s opened
it gives new sight.

The greatest Gift,
to pass along
is the One . . .
that lasts all lifelong.

For, eternal life,
is its only content
making it the most
Wonderful present.

So if you don’t know,
this year what Gift to give
tell others why Jesus . . .
in your life now lives!

Nothing We Can Do ~

nothing-we-can-do-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There’s nothing we can do,
to purchase salvation
no works, no deeds
will buy our redemption.

There’s not one thing,
that will earn us freedom
no activity, no action
will warrant us a pardon.

There’s not a single thing,
that’ll save us from sin
no method, no procedure
can remove the evil within.

There’s nothing we can say,
that’ll keep us from hell
no words, no benediction
can our spiritual death dispel.

There is only one thing,
Father, we can to do . . .
and by grace through faith
accept the gift from You!

Grace Is a Dirty Word ~

Grace is a Dirty Word ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil, he hates it
for there isn’t any room
in his plans for it to fit.

He knows it gives power,
to those who are weak
he knows God’s mercy
is not just for the meek.

He hates the Gospel,
of faith through grace
he despises the fact
this truth we embrace.

He detests the control,
grace bestows on us
it piques him to know
in God we put our trust.

Grace is a dirty word,
the devil knows so well
that those who have it . . .
wont’ be joining him in hell!

It’s About the Grace ~

It’s all about the grace,
not about the works . . .
it’s all about freedom
with eternal perks.

For grace is liberating,
it’s soul freeing too
and it’s not something
you get, by what you do.

It’s all about grace,
God’s mercy and favor
it’s all about having faith
in Christ, Jesus our Savior.

For grace is forgiving,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the price in full
leaving us nothing left to do.

It’s all about grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
that comes from deep within.

For grace will set you free,
from the inside out . . .
it’ll cast out every fear
take away all the doubt.

It’s all about the grace,
liberating and freeing
it will turn you away from
the sinful life you’re living!

The Gift of Faith ~

TAG CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ FAITH ~

Give the gift of faith,
so others may embrace
the saving power . . .
of God’s mercy and grace.

Share your confidence,
how certain, you’re forgiven
let them know your life . . .
is now, Holy Spirit driven.

Share your assurance,
of the hope, inside you
tell others how Jesus . . .
makes everyone like new.

Share your reliance,
in Jesus for all things
tell others of the future
the peace, He will bring.

Give the gift of faith,
tell others why you trust
that believing in Jesus . . .
is an eternal must!

The Gift of Grace ~

The Gift of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s only one gift,
that fits one and all . . .
it doesn’t matter your size
or if you’re big or small.

It’s the perfect gift,
it has a lifetime guarantee
it’s not something you’ll find
under your Christmas tree.

You cannot buy it in a store,
it’s not for auction or sale
you can’t find it on the web
or in ad’s sent in the mail.

You cannot send for it,
or ask it to be sent to you
it’s a gift where you’ll find
there’s nothing to buy or  to do.

There’s only one gift I know of,
that fit’s the whole human race
it’s a gift only Jesus can give . . .
and it’s called, His saving grace!

Embrace Grace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Photo ByGraceThroughFaith IBible Verses

The wonder of God’s grace,
is yours, to embrace . . .
your sins it forgives
your past, it will erase.

Grace is unmerited,
no works to perform
it’s a gift undeserved
your life, it’ll transform.

Grace brings new hope,
to the weariest of souls
for, the gospel of grace
heals and makes whole.

Grace has the power,
to make all things new
if you lack the strength
grace will carry you.

Grace seeks you out,
it knows where you are
for the grace of God
is never very far.

The wonder of God’s grace,
is free for the asking . . .
if you embrace, grace by faith
it will be ever-lasting!

The Perfect Gift ~

The Gift of Grace used with permission IBible Verses

I got you a fantastic gift . . .
it didn’t cost me a thing
but oh, what joy and happiness
to you it’s going to bring.

I hope you’ll accept it,
I pray you’re willing to receive
this special gift of mine
and that in it, you will believe.

The wrapping is nothing special,
but oh, wait till you see what’s inside
I’m encouraging you to take it
not to toss it or push it aside.

For in it you will find grace,
mercy, hope and favor
bundled up within all the goodness
is our Lord and precious Savior.

You see this is a perfect gift,
that I once too was given
I couldn’t believe it when I found
for my sin’s I was forgiven.

So please won’t you accept,
this gift I have for you
and in faith look inside and see
how much Jesus loves you too!

By Grace Alone

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
in Christ through faith
is why I’m free.

By grace alone,
not of my hand
so I humbly receive
redemption’s plan.

By grace alone,
not of my deed
the Word is sufficient
for want and need.

By grace alone,
not of my thought
God and favor
cannot be bought.

By grace alone,
not of my doing
a gift in measure
worth my pursuing.

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
justification epitomized
on the cross of Calvary!
