Cannot Be Earned!
By Tom D Blakely
Comes with salvation
By God’s decree that can’t be reversed.
It is our pardon
From God the Father
When we receive Christ justice is served.
Is our faith growing
It is the Spirit’s ongoing work.
For every Christian
It is life’s lesson
Fighting temptation to honour God.
Justification cannot be earned
This is God’s Word.
Has its own doctrines
To take the place of personal faith.
Christ is not with them
So they replace Him
Trusting themselves becomes their belief.
By grace God saves us
Through faith in Jesus
We are made righteous, this is God’s word.
God justifies us
When we know Jesus
Christ died to save us, the gift of God.
The gift of God
Cannot be earned!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
