The following salvation poem was written by Jeff Hildebrandt. It describes the amazing grace offered to you through Jesus Christ and his free gift of salvation. Sometimes we forget what Jesus did for us. Galatians 2:20 says, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." May this salvation poem help you remember Jesus' gift to you.
Salvation Poem - Sometimes I Forget
Sometimes I find that I forgot what put me in that place;
the honkytonks and rowdy rides that lead to my disgrace.
Then, just like on that C.S.I. a flashlight casts its beam
around my mind until it finds a memory I’d not seen
or thought about for many years; the folly of my youth.
The worldly haze and spiteful days spent running from the truth.
Santana sang of evil ways and that you had to change.
I’d sing along, like nothing’s wrong while riding Satan’s range.
And then I see what blinded me and kept me from the light.
I recognize that blood-shot eyes had blurred what was my plight.
Sometimes I find that I forgot just how I left that place.
I did not do it by myself, it took Amazing Grace.
I marvel at how God saved me and know I represent
the transformation God intends for all who will repent.
When I accepted Jesus Christ the things I valued most
became far less important than the Holy Lord of Hosts.
Eternal life began right then despite the devil’s rush
to keep me sinking deeper in my mire of mental mush.
So I slog on thru the quagmire on my way to higher ground
where I know the Rock of Ages and God’s Glory will be found.
God tells me I should not forget the reason for my past;
how He allowed my worldliness until the time, at last,
was right for me to turn around. And now I can relate
to those who run from righteousness. Show them their sorry state
can be replaced with love and life like God has done for me.
The Truth is that it’s not too late to start life eternally.

The Gospel is for Everyone
By Joye Atkinson
The gospel is for everyone not just a chosen few
Jesus shed His precious blood for every one of you
It doesn't matter to Him what you did long ago
He's ready to forgive your sins and He wants you to know
Just how much He loves you and you're precious in His sight
Whether you are fat or thin, brown or red or white
When you put your trust in Him the Father up above
Sees you only as His child enveloped in His love
Let us all remember God is not color blind
Before you were even born you were on His mind
It's not His intention for any to be lost
You're welcome in His kingdom He's already paid the price
