Redemption

I am my own opposition
As hard as I might try
The same old sin I do again
Without an alibi.

It seems I can’t be faithful
To the only One
Who loves me without question
No matter what I’ve done.

He takes my face into His hands
When I come to confess
And cleanses me and dresses me
In robes of righteousness.

(c) Robin Lawrimore, 2008
Romans 7:14-15, Luke 15:11-24

    “The same old sin I do again Without an alibi.” …and yet we’re forgiven time and time again. Who on this earth would do that? No one! Only the One who sits in the Heavenlies is capable of that. And it is Him that we sin against too. Robin ends with “It seems I can’t be faithful To the only One Who loves me without question No matter what I’ve done.” Sobering words if I’ve ever heard them… no matter what I’ve done, for the Bible says: “All manner of sin will be forgiven the sons of men.” ~Guy
