Justified By Faith

Justified by faith alone...in Jesus Christ
Not the works of the law for my Salvation
Just a look to the Lamb of God for His finished Sacrifice
Opens up one's eyes to this revelation
God was in Christ for our transgressing ways
He came alone to save us in our sins
It was not that we loved Him but that He loved us
And He took our sins full penalty upon Him

The simplicity of Salvation is to take God at His Word
That's where your step of faith begins
When you begin to read the Bible and pray for understanding
Your next step of faith will begin 
With a heart receptive to the truths found therein
A treasure chest of hope is in the making
For God delights to satisfy a heart that's hungry for Him
And faith advances in that undertaking

Faith becomes our victory when in the Lord we trust
His unseen Spirit it felt within the heart
The Spirit of Truth takes up its eternal residence
And as sure as God's promises...He never will depart!
Our job is just to believe...God will do the rest
Faith is the believers sure foundation
God's Word has stood the test!...praise God Lord Jesus lives!
And by faith we can enjoy...His so great Salvation!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
