May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14

Born this way

I was born this way: 

"Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned— "
Romans 5:12

“Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.”
Jeremiah 13:23

“This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.”
Romans 3:22-25a

I don't have to stay that way:
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

“Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Isaiah 53:4-6

I'm reborn this way:
“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:22-23

“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
Mark 1:15

I’ve gone the wrong way
But God makes no mistakes
Now I’m on the right track
I’m reborn this way.
