"bids us fly, and gives us wings"

Josh Daggett quoted this poem by John Bunyan tonight during his message:

Run, John, run, the law commands
But gives us neither feet nor hands,
Far better news the gospel brings:
It bids us fly and gives us wings.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace Ephesians 1:8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.” (Ephesians 1:7-8 NIV)

“He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, Titus 3:6 whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,” (Titus 3:5-6 NAS)
