Jesus died, once, for all
So we could repent, when we fall.
We're saved by grace through our faith
So death we did not have to taste.

There is no strength man can possess
To bring us into righteousness
There is no works that we can do
To save ourselves, this is true

The price was paid the task is done
The gift is given to all, by ONE.

This gift is given for all to take
To save God's children for His names sake.
Though it's free to us it came at great cost
Paid with the life of Jesus, to save the lost

Unmerited favor is what we need
By the blood of Jesus we are freed

There was a choice that Jesus made
When He gave His life, OH, the price He paid!
No expense was spared-nothing He didn't do
To save His children and show His love for you!

So through this gift of great grace
It's left to us, a choice to make
Do we believe? And will we partake?

Beautifuly done, WhtDove. Indeed, God's grace has to be one of the greatest gifts of all.

Thanks Michael and Hoot! What better gift could we get than Unmerited Favor!? With all the screw ups we do, we definitely need it. Thanks to God that He's in control and not us. We probably wouldn't have thought of it!

Could you imagine, one man, today, doing all of that? Mind boggling.

Sunshine, I tend to wonder if any man/women today would have the strength to do what He did for us in the name of LOVE!

Beautiful tribute here to the one man who gave up his life for us. The one man who continues to watch over each and everyone of us even when we don't deserve it. He finds ways to bring us together in faith and love. Thanks for sharing this I really enjoyed it.

WhiteDove - This is lovely. I hadn't seen it before I posted 'What Will You Do With Your Gift? ... but how closely our hearts and thoughts mirror His love.
