Saved by Grace (poem)

There was once a man named Kareem,

from the time he was young,

he wanted to fulfill a dream.

His aim alone,

was to please the One,

who wove Him flesh and bone.

All his life, Kareem worked with full effect,

but who he intended to please,

he was brought up to reject.

He lived & did as he was taught,

praying, fasting, holy places, charity and other sorts,

but what was he missing, he always thought,

the sacrifices he offered, had God remembered or forgot?

So he started to think,

To please God, what else could I bring?

One day he asked himself a question,

did he love the One responsible for his creation?

He answered a yes without hesitation

& wondered for all he had done, was it only for his society’s appreciation?

He then asked God, what did He want?

It was obvious that Kareem was now getting blunt.

He cried out for help with a lot of frustration?

Where was God in this dammed situation?

One day with a friend, he happens to see,

something intriguing on God TV

and wonders, “who is this God, they preach who can save me?”

He went home thinking and thinking,

This was certainly not his upbringing.

Son of God? How can this be?

Or did God have a Son just to save me?

Kareem by the Spirit began to understand & see…

God’s Son was God’s own Word,

God’s very Authority, the perfect sacrifice to save the world.

He wondered, if man could have a son, then why not God?

is there any good that man can do, which is not so with God?

Kareem then added 2 and 2,

& learned he had to say “YES” to the One to whom all praise was due,

who was the Son of God, Jesus, whom he barely knew.

He grew up with laws but no permanent solution,

If he had continued, he knew he would be due the retribution.

All these days he ran the race,

Sometimes he was at first place,

all this out of fear of the punishment he would embrace.

“Yes” to Jesus, he learned is the Ace,

that would save him alone by grace.

Of salvation, how could he, ever be worthy?

Countable years of works, could it ever be worth eternity?

This God about whom he learned through life’s experience, whom he now banks upon,

is the Godhead THREE in ONE

The Only God

& exist as FATHER, SPIRIT & SON.

I am a post-millennial reformed Christian (Trinitarian) in Mumbai – India, coming from a Roman Catholic background. I began studying my Bible in 2006 & find the post-millennial reformed doctrine to be the purest form of Biblical Christianity. Whether you are Roman Catholic, Charismatic, Arminian, Premillennialist, Amillennialists or even a non-Christian for that matter, I intend to use my writing to bring you to trust the Sovereign Lord in whom we are called to establish our lives on, as He sanctifies His called-out ones into the moral likeness of His Son. So, as commanded unto every Christian in the Great Commission, my duty is to teach the rich Christian standard of life that God has given us in the Moral Law because the ultimate purpose of any human being is to reflect the nature of God as revealed in the Moral Law and presented to us in Jesus Christ.
