Wednesday Riff: Discovery

We have discovered something
A liberating, burden-lifting, life-releasing secret
We are accepted and welcomed by God
Not because of our working hard, doing good deeds
Not because we agonise in prayer
Or try to obey every last little rule.
No.
We have discovered something
A liberating, burden-lifting, life-releasing secret
We are accepted and welcomed by God
Because of the free gift of Jesus,
His life, his work, his sacrifice,
His death and resurrection.
And
We have discovered something
A liberating, burden-lifting, life-releasing secret
That when we forget this
And try to earn our acceptance and welcome
Through hard work, agonising and rule keeping
He reminds us again –
We are acceptable to God
Because of his unique, extraordinary Son.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
