The Value of Grace


Value A:
I know I’m not perfect
So why even try?
Don’t want too much Jesus
Just some of his pie
And you there, don’t judge me
Hold onto that stone
Who made you my keeper?
My life is my own
I’m free now, He said it
I’ll live as I choose
Your talk about walk
Don’t apply to these shoes
My sins have been paid
My failure erased
Try daily for holy????
Ain’t you heard of grace?

Value B:
I know I’m not perfect
But sin breaks my heart
Today I may stumble
The next’s a new start
To live it for Jesus
This life He redeemed
And walk so that in me
His name is esteemed
If I get distracted
Or wander astray
Encourage, correct me
And more ’til that Day
Though you may not know me
Our Father’s the same
And we have a duty
To GLORY that name!
Christ suffered my judgment
Then died in my place
I’ll not dare forget that
Nor cheapen His grace

Which is yours?

  1. I think it’s great that you touched on this topic–it’s so easy to be preoccupied by other values and underestimate the depth of grace we receive, or take it completely for granted
