It Takes A Step Of Faith

It takes a step of faith to believe God's Word 
But what a step in the right direction
You'll find out facts that you were always wondering about
From Christ's birth to His glorious Resurrection 
Then there's the fact of sin
That we've inherited since the days of Adam
For by his disobedience we took on a sin nature
And unless it's changed we'll all be damned

There's serious consequences in disobedience
Man is the living proof of it
Bent on leaving God out of his life
He has no real deep joy in it
But on the other hand...praise God hallelujah!
By the determinate obedience of One
We can live a life in fellowship with
The Father, the Spirit, and the Son

The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sin
And took on sins full penalty
To bring us deliverance and a so great Salvation
That we'll enjoy for eternity
It takes a step of faith to believe it
And to trust in that life giving One
But when we repent and turn away from our sin
Our real living has just begun!

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
