Live by Faith
I am not ashamed of the Word,
For it is the power of God;
Proclaiming for it to be heard,
Of whom we always humbly laud.
For salvation if you believe,
First to the Jew and to the Greek;
To Gentiles for sin they grieve,
Turn to the Lord for hope they seek.
From faith to faith it is revealed,
Of the Lord and His righteousness;
For a plea that Christ would appeal,
The Father flowing blessedness.
Live by faith as to be righteous,
And you will be spared of the wrath;
Having Heaven to be conscious,
Stays on the straight and narrow path.
For the wrath of God is revealed,
From Heaven against godlessness;
For the truth is never concealed,
Of those without the righteousness.
Since what can be known about God,
Is always evident of them;
Disease ridden from being flawed,
Their sin causes God to condemn.
His invisible attributes,
And power of divine nature;
Looks for the one who contributes,
Be righteous as a new creature.
Clearly seen since the creation,
Being understood what was made;
For giving a new foundation,
The beauty as being displayed.
Even though that they knew of God,
No gratitude to glorify;
Never giving honor and laud,
Keep as holy to sanctify.
Their thinking has become nonsense,
Darkened minds claiming to be wise;
And having a foolish defense,
That the righteous they will despise.
They claim the truth of God a lie,
Serving an idol that is fake;
Nothing to hope after they die,
Never able to reawake.
