grace forgiveness given

Jesus Christ 
God's only son
God's only way
God's only mediator
came lived died
so that we might believe on him
so that we may be reborn
new creatures
new men
to let the old man die
become transformed
into new creatures
grace given
his righteousness shared
so that we may pursue him
so that we may live in him
and he in us
grace forgiveness given
so that we are not just excused of our sin
but rather we become free from it
so that we may depart from it
that which destroys us
learn to step away
become stronger
set apart
taking on the character of Christ
adopted sons of God
with family traits
not wallowing in our sin
mere animals with excuses
with a free pass from hell to heaven
a straight way to become
sons of God
not wallow
not stay in our sin
to continue
in the same ways
of death to death
mercy grace given
so that we may grow
and walk with our Creator
as in the garden
as God originally intended
for the pleasure of his company
as in the garden

believe receive walk
away from bondage
believe receive walk
toward light and life
use his grace given
for the means
it was originally intended
believe receive walk
let us walk together
with God
toward holiness

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation - but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it.  For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
-Romans 8: 12-13
