Mercy-message




 PAD challenge day 3: Write a message poem

There is a message none should dare to shun
Of sacred absolution spilled in red
This mercy-message is for everyone
As on behalf of us the Author pled

There is a message no one should ignore
Lest Death should come and seal redemption’s gate
This mercy-message opens Heaven’s door
Or bars it to the one who trusts in fate

There is a message written, not in ink
But in the blood of One, Jesus, God’s Son
And all who will believe and trust in it
Will not perish when this small life is done

There is a message that never grows old
‘Love of God’ on centuries engraved
A mercy-message told and then re-told
For it is by His grace that we are saved
