The Gospel in Rhyme
By David Smith July 15, 2010
Jeremiah 17:9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Romans 5:6 in due time Christ died for the ungodly
John 17:3,4 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
Romans 10:9, 10, 11 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Christ died for the ungodly; the words to truly believe;
The finished work of the Cross
Any other way will undermine and deceive.
He did it all; it all has been done
To believe with thine heart, to repent
He has won.
To live a godly life without Christ in the heart;
Being so desperately wicked, Satan does his part.
Live a holy life because Christ dwells in you.
By faith ye are saved; His word carries us through
To live a religious life; a slave of work for sure;
Only God’s finished work, where eternity can endure.
Thy faith has made thee whole
To confess with thy mouth;
And believe with thine heart;
What salvation is all about.
