Just as if Id never sinned;
Because I have been justified.
Im cleansed with Jesus blood,
Since it was for me He died.

Oh yes, He gave His young life;
But He rose on the third day
Which made my salvation complete.
He hears from Heaven when I pray.

He sent His Holy Spirit
To abide within my heart;
To guide, convict, and bless
When Im tempted to depart.

With each confession in prayer,
Forgiveness comes my way;
Because He paid the price
For the times I m prone to stray.

What a blessed recollection,
When He first came to abide within.
He changed my life completely,
Removed my heavy load of sin.

I cannot help but share the news.
My Jesus also died for you.
When you dedicate your life to Him,
He will always see you through.

It only takes a minute,
To empty your life of sin.
Let Jesus guide your life,
And you will have rest within.

Hes coming again someday.
I believe it is very soon.
Will your heart be ready,
Or will you meet your doom?

There is a price to pay,
When you reject your Savior;
Because your Spirit never dies
When you enter the great forever.

great reflective poem. thanks :-)

I was at a Woman's conference the other weekend, and the speaker used the "just as if" and "justified" example. :)

The rhythm of the poem was off a bit in a few places, but didn't detract from the piece overall.

Great job with this one.

This gives a lot of truth in a succinct way. No more important minute than when we accept Jesus as Savior.
