The One Who Saves
A poem by Kerron Duncan
We all need some saving, a little help now and then
To get us out of situations that we find ourselves in.
And yes the struggle may be no ones fault but our own
As we pray for relief – after this time we’ll atone.
Perfected through these trials, in the end we surmise
As long as we can get through the challenge in time.
There’s a war going on inside, in our minds
We guess that is why we have to fight through these battles each time.
When we observe those who save and the courage they possess
Policemen, firefighters, doctors, nurses and the rest.
We’re not like them at all – no training, no uniform
We don’t have the skills necessary to hold back the storm.
Plus as Christians we know Jesus is really the one who saves
But it’s truly hard to see him in our battles everyday.
We consider the Bible and the answers it’s meant to provide
Stumbling through verses revealed this to me like a sign
When we are crucified with Christ it is no longer we who survived
But it is God’s son, Jesus Christ Himself who now lives inside.
Now we take a step back and contemplate the meaning that we see
The awesome reality that the One who saves
