If God were a Kantian, who would not have us till we came to Him from the purest and best motives, who could be saved? …C.S. Lewis

As I deliberate on how my salvation came to be
I am made aware that it was God who first reached for me
In truth the whole world had turned away
We followed our own lusts and found it hard to obey
Every being on this sinful planet followed our own selfish passions
Our Heavenly father saw our sinful traditions
And it was he who sent his son to show us the way
For he knew there were still those who would follow and obey
The cost of the sinful lives we lived was our downfall
Jesus hung on the cross and thereby paid for them all
When he rose up again after three days
He called to us to change our sinful ways
He said, “My Father is offering your redemption if you follow me
You have been blind to his ways but he would have you see”
Know his love and pass it on and your salvation thus is won
Accept this as a gift freely given for you to receive
It could not be earned so be you not deceived
Accept his pardon and pass it on to others
Show Agape love to your sisters and brothers
Dogwoods and Daffodils Now on sale on the Den

In truth the whole world had turned away,
We followed our own lusts and found it hard to obey

It often seems that way these sad days, my friend.

Blissful reflection Lew ~ a reminder of much-needed forgiveness for this reader at least!
Reviewed by George Carroll 11/21/2010
This is most appropriate on this day Christ The King. May we all benefit from it.
