Reward of Grace

Reward of Grace “1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;” Rom 5:1-3 NIV Catholics and Jews Have almost lost sight of grace Teaching God’s favor— Must be earnt in its place The reward of the righteous Gained by their own works Prompted by a grasping spirit In a mercenary manner lurks Grace does not lessen The claim of God’s law The requirement in Eden Obedience still the core Each lover of self Is a law transgressor Ignores God’s commands Destined sin cherisher Love of self and wealth to gain Are out of harmony With the principles of heaven And God’s desire for sanctity Conditions of discipleship A soul must accept Where grace and mercy’s given To serve others not reject Entrance into the heavenly city Comes only through unmerited grace No inheritance can purchase it Nor works can replace The heart must be melted As the Winter’s snow Service given to the Savior As in Spring new life does grow The reward of grace Is given to each soul Whose freed from bondage Broken lives now made whole Pardon is provided When repentance is sincere Mercy and grace clasp hands Lives find God’s repair.
