NaPoWriMo 2013, #11–Finishing Well

We all want to finish well,
And keep ourselves from going to Hell.

Then why do we fall under the spell,
Of the one who from Heaven fell,
And believe his lie?  Oh, do tell me why?

The Son of Man came to die and quell
All doubt, and sin He did dispel.

Believe in Him to finish well,
And so escape the eternal Hell.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #7–Romans 8 Declarations and Question

Freedom!
In Christ Jesus I am not condemned as I walk according to the Spirit.
In Christ the law of the Spirit of life has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Acceptance!
God offered me this freedom by sending His Son who fulfilled the law, as I accept Him,
God, in Christ, adopts me as His child.  I can now call God my “Abba, Father”

Provision!
I am now a joint heir with Christ.   I have hope.  I have a Helper, the Spirit, who intercedes in prayer for me.
All things will work together for good for me, because I love God and am called according to His purpose.

Purpose!
God foreknew me, predestined me, called me, justified me, will glorify me.
I have a destiny.  I am to be conformed to the image of the Son.

Question?
What can one say to all these things? 
I would ask— If God is for me—who can be against me?
