Costly

Romans 6:1-4

cross

               So Costly

We receive a gift so extravagant
Plain folk like me can scarcely comprehend.
I know though to repent as I am forgiven,
to pursue the holy as I am baptized in grace,
to confess as I enter the table, to
confess publicly, absolved.
I know to learn,
as I am unlearned each day.
I know grace.
I know Christ.
Easy and yet not easy.
Such precious gems,
such a gift!

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
