“Redemption’s Claim”

 “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love . . . In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” (Ephesians 1: 4, 7)

In your searching!  May God bless you!  Guide your path!  And show the way!  With a bump!  He then can teach you!  Life’s great trials!  Refining rays!  True commitment! Endless struggles!  Climbing up to Heaven’s gate!  Faith un-faltered!  Still Enduring! Atoning love!  To seal your fate!  Hope in asking!  Charity grasping!  Works revealed!   Upon this earth!  Lasting power!  The final hour!  Redemption’s claim!  Of your great worth!       (Poetry by R. Lyle Johnson)
