Runaway Slaves

Runaway slaves
with a debt to pay,
that is a good description
of us all today.
Running from a God
who loves us so,
we’re convinced we’re freed
but it just isn’t so.
Sin has become our master.
We’re slaves no matter what.
How much more freeing
to serve a living and loving God.
So Christ comes to plea
and pay the debt we owe.
He makes us family.
He does not let go.
Surrender your account
that has been paid by Christ.
God loves you as His child
and longs to give you eternal life.
