What God Says

In the beginning,
God said:
Do this, freely,
But not this, at all.
And there it stood,
To do or not do
As God said,
No matter what.

Enter, temptation,
And we did not
Do what God said.
From Cain to
The last man standing,
We still do not
Do what God says.

God is good,
Thanks be He
     is merciful too.
The Giver of gifts
     to give back,
In faith it is
What He says
     we are to do.

But even that
We cannot do,
So Grace,
From the first
To the last,
Does that too.

Come Lord Jesus,
And how,
There is no time
     like now.

    Genesis 2:16-17, 3:1-24
    Hebrews 11:4-6, 12:4
