GOING DUTCH WITH GOD

There was a time when I thought I could earn the way
by human efforts and diligence and prayers I’d sometimes pray.
Then I spoke in righteousness all on your behalf.
I figure I pretty much knew it all so go ahead, drop your staff.
Then I slipped and fell and knew not what I’d done.
I thought, ‘What’s up, haven’t I my salvation won?”
“Child”, He spoke so quietly that I could hardly hear.
“Come up with me and I will wash away you tears”.
To eat of His table was a grand delight.
How filled and satisfied I was with everything just right.
The bill now due, I wanted to pay my share.
He said, “My child, don’t you see what I have done here?”
And all the time I sat amazed at his wondrous grace.
His Son, at His side, wondering if I could see His face.
So we laughed and spoke all of wondrous things.
Then we cried and sobbed through the sadness that life on earth can bring.
Finally, I put away my shabby pocketbook and looked upon the Son.
I slowly realized that He hath my salvation won.
The price He paid in heaven’s establishment we cannot afford.
I have learned we can not “go Dutch’ with the one and only Lord.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
