The Grace Chase

Minute to minute we live our short lives,
Our backs are scarred by the enemies knives,
But all wounds are healed if we seek the Lordís face,
We live for the chase, the chase for grace.

Sinning is easy but Godís way is tough,
Satan once was our master but enough is enough,
Our future now lies in a Heavenly place,
If we stay in the chase, the chase for grace.

Pride must be broken and hearts must be soft,
Humility must fly like a banner aloft,
Selfishness and envy should be gone without trace,
To remain in the chase, the chase for grace.

Good deeds out of love not necessity are done,
Weíre not here to make friends, be popular and have fun,
Weíre a shame to the world, a constant disgrace,
Because of the chase, the chase for grace.

In the power of crystals, people believe,
The horoscope and tarot cards are gladly received,
Mystical powers have become commonplace,
In spite of the chase, the chase for grace.

Believers are tortured and thrown to the fire,
The Martyrs are led to their funeral pyre,
But their suffering and shame is for but a short space,
Due to faith in the chase, the chase for grace.

The Earthís time is quickening, the years pass so fast,
And no man is aware of how long it will last,
But man goes on regardless at a frightening pace,
Ignoring the chase, the chase for grace.

There are all kinds of theories as to why we are here,
Most are accepted, but from Godís Word people steer clear,
Itís more fun on this world if the truth is erased,
Satan hides the chase, the chase for grace.

But the light of the Word on the Earth will not die,
Satanís already beaten despite all his lies,
Deception and hatred will soon be displaced,
Thank God for the chase, the chase for grace.


AUTHORS NOTE:
Every man woman and child who walks planet Earth is a sinner who fall short of the glory of God. It is impossible to enter Heaven unless the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is accepted as a personal gift and genuine repentance from sin is established. Even then our sinful nature will not be completely gone, but lurking under the surface of our Godly exterior, raising itís ugly head every now and then ensuring that our Christian walk is full of snares and potholes. But to those people who humble themselves before God , he gives another most precious gift. Grace. Without grace it would be pointless trying to get to Heaven because the Bible clearly states that ďIt is by Grace through Faith you are saved, not by works, lest any man should boastĒ. Are you covered by grace? Do you throw yourself at the feet of the Lord as a sinner and get up forgiven and redeemed? If not I have given you something to think about.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
