Saved Sinners

Sometimes it’s so hard to do what’s right,
We get deceived like Eve when she first took the bite.

Adam knew it was wrong but chose to follow his girl,
Together they brought sin into this world.

Sin kept growing and was getting worse,
So God filled the clouds with water until one day they burst.

The clouds were grey, the sky was dark,
It rained till everyone died except for those in the Ark.

It was an event to let man know,
God does not like sin and He’s in control.

It didn’t take long for it to come around again,
The second we’re born our blood contains sin.

So what can we do? God has His plan,
And this time it differed from flooding the land.

He came to this world in the flesh and blood,
He lived a sinless life to show how it’s done.

Jesus never once sinned, not even at the end,
He loved all of the people, even the wicked men.

As He was up on the cross facing death,
He asked for forgiveness of the men who were taking his breath.

The love that lives in Jesus can live in us too,
If only we dedicate our lives and serve Him with a heart that’s true.

He’ll forgive us of our sins time and time again,
And when it’s time to go to heaven, He’ll gladly let us in.

    I like the connection you make between God sending forth the Great Flood and sending His Son, Jesus Christ. It was in response to man’s sins. You can definitely rhyme beautifully while crafting a thoughtful analysis of God’s great plans.
    Thank you for this! Hope you don’t mind but I had to post a link to it on my blog.
