Is Salvation dependent on my own efforts? My own merits? My works? My accomplishments? My efforts? Or is it dependent on someone for more capable?

"It's Not In Me" Written by The Artist J

My Salvation isn't dependent on how many times I fail

My Salvation isn't dependent on how many times I fail If it were, the trail would be measured by how many times I've bailed

My Salvation isn't dependent on how many times I fail If it were, the trail would be measured by how many times I've bailed See, my strength pales in comparison to how many times I've fell

The more I fail

The more I fail The faster I bail

The more I fail The faster I bail And the harder I fell

The more I fail The faster I bail And the harder I fell Is exactly the proof to know that I can never save myself

It

It Is

It Is Not

It Is Not In

It Is Not In Me

What a humbling phrase

What a humbling phrase Dependence can bring a PEACE that pride just can't replace

Dependence- Is it a word for the weak?

Dependence- Is it a word for the weak? Or is it what all desperately seek?

If Salvation is up to me then I'm bound to fail

If Salvation is up to me then I'm bound to fail The question is "Do I know anyone that can prevail?"

There is only one with a record that's clean

There is only one with a record that's clean Never fell Never failed Never bailed

There is only one with a record that's clean Never fell Never failed Never bailed In accomplishing His goals

There is only one with a record that's clean Never fell Never failed Never bailed In accomplishing His goals Even when that goal was to take the failures of His foes

Took all my sin and died nailed to a tree

Took all my sin and died nailed to a tree Rose to live again and supplies my every need

Salvation?

Salvation? Eternity?

Salvation? Eternity? Absolutely Not! Not Dependent on me!

Salvation? Eternity? Absolutely Not! Not Dependent on me! Jesus Alone!

Salvation? Eternity? Absolutely Not! Not Dependent on me! Jesus Alone! Exactly As It Should Be
