Life’s Greatest Gift

Accepting God’s offer
submitting to God’s will
saying yes to God’s wooing
pursuing us still

Life’s greatest gift
relation with our Maker
our Savior, the Spirit
joined with our spirit

The breath of life abiding
the grace of God descending
like the cloud on the mountain
indwelling in us

Walking joyful
informed by the Spirit
going as we are led
within the Master’s plan

Doing our part
servants of the kingdom
going forth to witness
to the warmth of God’s grace

Changed forever
in a moment, yet a lifetime
journeying together
in the yoke of God’s love

Luke 15:11-32
The Prodigal Son
The Story of the Lost Son
The Story of the Loving Father

Justifying Grace
Sanctifying Grace
