A little backstory on today’s poetic offering. I had a conversation on the phone with my nephew Todd as I prepared dinner last night. He has been through some upheaval, but I am grateful to know the Lord has taken hold of him.
As I spoke with him, I recalled my early days of seeking God, and trying to follow the way of truth. Trying to bumble around this new life I felt within. Trying to figure out the church and church people with all the confusing mixed messages. Trying to understand scripture and what it had to do with me.
Or more specifically, learning about the One who called Himself, in John 14:6 THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life (emphasis mine). The One who didn’t mince words, leave room for doubt, or room to accept multiple ways. The one who cared not whether what he said would win him favor with the religious elite or the politically inclined.
Because, well…when YOU are TRUTH…it’s what you do. There is no compromise in divinity. Make no mistake Jesus Christ never compromised. He knew His mission. He knew the messiness of those He would die to redeem. Jesus never compromised, He went ALL IN. He set His face like flint and modeled love in a mind-blowing sacrifice beyond all comprehension. One that many are far too familiar with in limited perception.
This morning as I prayed and sought answers as I do, I felt led to write these words. In light of this week and the days leading up to the day of our our * full Redemption, I pray you are encouraged by my morning poem.
From the Perspective of Dust
God is greater than any
He is not bound by
God is not limited by
or translator (s).
God is not limited by denomination
nor political affiliation.
None can contain
God is not limited by
our ability to comprehend,
believe or acknowledge Him.
God is God
and we are
Therefore let us consider
not our limited perception-
the God who is
The One who was and is and is to come.
The One who claimed Israel as His own-
The God of our Fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
who gave prophets and priests
and Yeshua haMashiach
The one to whom every knee shall bow,
and every tongue confess-
who has been revealed in the form of a man
to redeem mankind, who remains by the power of His Spirit
who knows His own,
who is coming again,
To THIS God be ALL glory, honor and praise.
