Romans 6:23 (KJV)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!

If the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ,
Given to us as a free gift
Causes the people of God to have pride because
We are now gloriously pardoned, guiltless, forgiven, and free
Instead of a worshipful, repentant response of penitent humility
Is not the cause of Jesus Christ diminished by our pride?
For it was because of our sins our Savior was crucified and died
And now he is constantly interceding for us at our Father’s side.

How could we ,as His forgive people of Grace,
In our own pride not lavishly and reciprocally offer
The love, forgiveness, and grace that was given to all of us
When we first met Jesus face to face?
