How Can I Describe Salvation

How Can I Describe Salvation

How can I describe Salvation
From a personal point of view
It's a change from the inside out
That only God can do
Our enemy called sin
Has such penetrating power
Particularly blinding us to our need
Of Salvation in this hour

The gospel is hid to those who are lost
So the Bible says
And Satan has blinded each person's eyes
To prevent them from being saved
But praise God by His drawing power
He leads by His Spirit to believe
And every single seeking soul
Upon repentance will receive

So great Salvation in Christ the Lord
This is a gift from God
Bestowed upon each believing heart
As a token of His love
And Jesus death upon the cross
Procured a resolution
For for the penalty of my sin
He became sin's substitution

And offered up His life as such
The Lamb for sinner's slain
So Salvation by grace through faith alone
Could be literally obtained
I have been changed from the inside out
And Christ now lives in me
I came... I saw... I repented... I believed
Praise God for Calvary!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
