Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 02/17/2013

Head on over to Proverbial Thought for some wisdom from God’s Word!

Perhaps you have heard or read this verse:

All of us have become like one who is unclean,  and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf,  and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
Isaiah 64:6

This is why we can not earn our way into heaven. It is only by the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection that we have any hope of getting into heaven! The poem today is about this very thing:

 

 patchwork 

we start out with a set of clothes
yet we keep those as we continue to grow
as we get older they start to fade
and we add to them various stains
we cannot clean them as we go
in fact our attempts create new holes
our lives and choices damage them
holes and stains become more abundant
we do things to patch them together
sometimes wondering why we bother
nothing we do will ever help us
but praise God that He sent Jesus
Jesus lived a perfect life
and in love for us went and died
if we accept His death we get new clothes
He gives to us pristine white robes
sometimes we might pick up stains
but His blood washes us and makes us clean
and do not worry about any holes
for holiness is meant for these robes
