The Invitation to Yes

by Man In Charge

We are free.

Not mastered by sin

We have the power

To say Yes;

And to say No.

No, to all temptation.

No, to every lie that tries to sway us.

No, to each seductive persuasion

That calls out to our lesser selves,

We have the power

To say No.

And to say Yes.

Yes, to all that is good and right and true.

Yes, to all that is holy and worthy of praise.

Yes, to beauty, righteousness, excellence;

Yes to divine encounters and sacred relationships;

Yes to God’s wisdom, grace, and forgiveness.

Yes to our salvation

Now and forever

Through Jesus Christ

Empowering us to say No;

Inviting us to say Yes.
