“Grace Steps In 2015”

 


As we head into the new year I hope we are wondering how God might use us for His glory and purposes in 2015.  I’d like you to consider what I call taking “Grace Steps” in the New Year. It is fitting to call them “Grace Steps” because all of our steps forward as believers are actually because of the grace of God.  In the following, I give you three to consider. You may want to pursue each one of them.  The first is about something personal. It is dealing with those “defeating thoughts” many of us continually find ourselves thinking about ourselves that are not to be part of our new life in Christ. The second has to do with our part in building up God’s people, His church, and the vital part each one of us plays in that process. And the third has to do with God using us to reach people who do not know him. We hold the good news they so desperately need. Look over these verses and ask God which step (s) He wants you to take in 2015. We have been extended such great grace from God and He wants to continue to draw upon His grace and use us in His Kingdom work.

"Grace Steps In 2015"

ďThe FallĒ

 

Once God had made man he needed a place

To dwell with his wife and father a race

So He brought forth a garden with every good tree

He called it Eden where Adam could be

After He made it He proceeded to bless it

Then He put Adam in it to keep it and dress it

He gave Him the trees and the fruit the whole lot

But the fruit of the one in the midst He gave not

He said listen My son for I do not lie

If you eat of itís fruit you will surely die

Then He said itís not good that man is alone

So He caused him to sleep and took his rib bone

Bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh

Now man had a woman they started out fresh

They were both naked the man and his wife

And they knew no shame they simply lived life

This time in the garden this innocent age

Would come to a close as we turn the page

Now the serpent was subtle with a mouth full of guile

Casting doubt on Godís Word that is his style

He came at the woman and told her his lie

Said eat of the fruit for ye shall not die

For in the day that you eat it then shall ye see

Knowledge youíll have as a god ye shall be

She looked at the fruit and it did look sweet

So she took a bite and her husband did eat

Then their eyes were opened and they were to blame

They sewed fig leaves together to cover their shame

Then came Godís voice in the cool of the day

From the presence of God they both hid away

God called out to Adam where art thou O where

He said I am hiding for my body is bare

Who said you were naked how could this be

Did you eat of the fruit of that only tree

Then Adam said something that truly was flawed

For he blamed his wife and he even blamed God

Then God asked the woman what have you done

She blamed the serpent said he is the one

Then God cursed the serpent and said you can trust

Youíll go on your belly and you shall eat dust

And there shall be hatred between yours and her seed

For Heíll bruise your head with His heel for this deed

To the woman He said in sorrow and pain

Youíll bring forth your seed and your husband shall reign

Then He said to Adam since you chose your wife

Iím cursing this ground ye shall work all your life

Sharp thorns and thistles shall trouble your field

But by the sweat of thy brow bread it will yield

Toil you shall know your whole life through

For dust you came from and dust youíll go to

Then came the first death God took coats of skin

As the first blood was shed to cover their sin

God said to them both now you must go

Of good and of evil now you both know

For My tree of life gives life thatís forever

And your access to it I must now sever

So they went forth from Eden away from the Lord

He placed cherubim there with a flaming sharp sword

Way back in the garden man made a bad call

And that is the reason we call it the fall
