Cart Before the Horse?


This problem finds no human solution -
Shouldn’t we be evolved by now? -
Sin and death are ever Earth’s pollution.
Science can never tell us how.

Christ Jesus bore all God’s wrath for my sin,
So I can know God’s love through Him.
Deepen my grasp of God’s love through Earth’s din.
Otherwise, the future looks grim.

My sin is forgiven but not expelled.
I still have that old sin nature.
I know I’m saved and His Spirit indwells,
I’ll need to feed in His Pasture. 

God’s wrath stays on one who rejects Jesus
And His death on The Cross for sin.
It is only by faith that He frees us.
Christ died my salvation to win.
