1. The law continually convicts man of sin. What solu-
tion has God provided?
2. What feelings would a prisoner experience if he were
trapped in a dungeon? Have you ever experienced
some of the same feelings? What one thing freed you
from a prison of sin, a “life without parole”?
3. What does this verse teach you about the nature of
man? Why do some people tend to think that man is
basically good? How does Scripture address this
Is the law pointing a gun at you? Are you afraid of what will
happen when the trigger is pulled? BANG! It’s only a cruel gag.
Remember, the law has no power over you because...
1. The law was given to reveal sin—to make men more
aware of their sins.
2. The law was temporary.
3. The law was not given by God, but through a media-
tor; therefore, it is inferior.
4. The law has no power to give life.
5. The law declares that the whole world is a prisoner
The Proof That A Man Is Justified By Faith Along And Not By Works
(Continued from previous page)
The story behind my poem is very special to
me because the Lord asked me to write it.
I’m from the Amish culture, and as the Lord
opened my eyes to receive Him as my Sav-
ior, I now want to share my testimony with
others. He has changed my perspective and
made a new piece of pottery out of me.
Though I was broken, now Jesus can shine
through my being, and I can tell the world
of His love and what He has done for me.
You first spoke to me, Jesus,
A little girl, bonnet and shawl.
Though you showed me your love,
With veil before my eyes, I couldn’t see
Through the storms of life
The broken pieces burned to ashes.
The tears from my heart
Put them together again, Lord.
You are the potter, Lord.
Mold me again.
Make something beautiful, Lord,
A new creation in you.
Tear down the strong holds;
Set the captives free;
Make me a shining light
For the blind to see.
Fill me with your Holy Spirit;
Light the candle within me;
Shine through me, Jesus,
For you have called me.
Make me your tabernacle;
Light the candle within me
To be used for your glory, Lord,
For all the world to see.
May you be exalted, Lord,
Through this vessel you have freed;
Through your precious blood
We will celebrate your victory.
