Galatians 3 in Rhyme
God gave Abraham a promise.
Abraham believed what God said.
The agreement, blessing through the Seed,
Required Jesus’ blood to be shed.
Thorough His outpouring at Calvary,
As He became cursed on a cross,
Redemption was given to mankind.
No soul would have to stay lost.
All could inherit God’s Spirit.
The sacred in man would reside.
This blessing God promised to Abraham;
Abraham believed that it would arrive.
The law with its conditions
Cold not impose a command
To hinder the giving of this Gift,
This promise God had planned.
The Law was powerless to keep man
From experiencing what God had said.
Whetting hunger for a Savior,
It created soul-emptiness instead.
Man, realizing how imperfect
His best efforts always would be,
Could look to the Perfect Sacrifice
For hope for eternity.
Just as Abraham was counted righteous
Because he simply believed,
Man’s faith would be the connector
For the Promise he could receive.
Abraham believed what God would do.
Now man believes what God has done
That God provided an inheritance
Through the death of his dear Son.
The blessing for all nations
Funneled through Abraham’s Seed
Is the indwelling Holy Spirit
All men can receive.
Adorned in a robe of righteousness
That the law could not obtain,
Man wears Christ’s identity,
The Seed’s precious, holy name.
Authority and honor is given
Man shares benefits with the Beloved
Not because of giving, but by receiving,
The Promise God sent from above.
