Free Grace

These aren’t my words, but I really want to share this.

it’s free
but we work for it anyway
thinking we can somehow
earn the right to God’s favor

it’ free
but we offer payment
as if anything we could offer
can equal the life of His son

it’s free
and we hide it from others
lest they find redemption
from far worse sins than ours

it’s free
and it isn’t dependent
on our hideous prejudices
and hypocritical

it’s free
and it will kill you
so that you can be reborn
a child of the most holy God
