Loophole of Love

Loophole

Genesis 3:4-6
New Living Translation (NLT)

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too.


The Amazing Loophole

We had a great big problem
And there seemed to be no cure
God had said if you eat of this
You’re gonna die for sure

Well Eve was tempted by that snake
And then Adam ate as well
And ever since that moment
We’ve been faced with living hell

Then we tried to do our very best
By upholding of the law
But not a single person
Could live without a flaw

But God with His amazing mercy
Had always had a plan
His Son would take our punishment
And be redemption for each man

So Jesus came and took our blows
And was the greatest loophole that’s ever been
He left that ole snake a defeated foe
And put an end to all our sin

Perhaps you want to give Him thanks
And wonder what might suffice
Just believe the Father sent Him
And that He’s our resurrected sacrifice

Then Heaven’s door will be opened
And you’ll be invited in
Not as a slave or servant
But as a child and a friend

Father,

You have provided a way for us to be redeemed. We do not deserve it but we are eternally grateful. Please make Your name great throughout the world so that all might hear and accept Your gift.

  1. Thanks for this post. What a great loophole God provided knowing we would all be dead in sin. Jesus is the only way even though many try to find other loopholes to escape eternal separation from God. I just posted about this too and it’s nice to see other posts that are like minded. I didn’t think to write it as a poem though so that is great to read your post.
