POETRY CHALLENGE—DAY #3.
“Jesus wept.”–The Gospel of John 11:35.
The Apostle John tells the story,
Of Jesus waiting for God’s glory…
And four days inside
His tomb would have smelled pretty gory!
Jesus waited up north
So He could call Lazarus forth…
Out from the dead
Filling with dread
Those who thought Him a poor sort.
The people saw Jesus cared
Far beyond what most were aware…
So also we
He lovingly sees,
Wanting us His name bear.
We must die to sinning
Like he did–volunteering–
Lay ourselves at His feet,
All we are–complete–
With no more ego domineering.
