Saved by Grace Shielded by You

I am tired
I am tired of your piercing words
I am tired of your daily ranting
Of my drunken life
I am tired of the gossips
Of my child born out of wedlock
I am tired of your reporting to the priest
Of my sexual escapades
I am tired of your judgemental
holier-than thou self-pleasing
Self-righteous attitude
I am annoyingly tired of hearing your voice

The voice that reminds me
Of my weaknesses
The voice that reminds me
Of my shortcomings
The voice that tells me of hell
And the judgment day
The voice that reminds me of curses
Of my fathers and forefathers
The voice that tells me I am poor
Because  I am not righteous

You have so vividly told me
About how my sins will take me to hell
You have so vividly told me about hell
So much that it feels I have been there already
You have so vividly told me
About the burning furnace and the unquenchable flame from the ore

You never told me about the love of God
You never told me God loves me
In spite of my weakness
You never told me I only have to believe
You never told me it won’t require my effort
You neither shared the story
Of the great grace nor the love
You never told me he was made sin
For me that I will be called righteous
You never told me that my born agian Does not require the effort of the flesh
You never told me that
He did not acuse the prostitute
He did not acuse the tax collector
And never told the thief how hell looked like

I don’t blame you
Because you did not know
When you were told you refused
To accept it bacause it was too simple
For your complicated mind

Now go out there
And preach it as it should be
Preach the love and the grace
Tell them about the new life
In the new covenant
Preach your testimony
You don’t need a hundred
Or a thousand scriptures
You don’t need theology
You don’t need the Greek, Hebrew or Arabic Meaning of soul winning
Soul winning means soul winning
And every soul is a soul
Make the father happy
Let heaven rejoice
Go out there and win
