Lent 2017: Choice

IMG_0615

In Your pursuit to share truth
You ignored dress and status,
Spoke with the proud and the anxious,
Used parables and miracles
To dispell long-held beliefs,
Held people spell-bound with your voice
Yet still left people with a choice.

A gentle approach,
Few dramatics for the cynics,
The whole time already knowing
How the story would end:
What kind of man would willingly
Choose to die excrutiatingly?

We live knowing You knew the end
Before we grasped the beginning,
You put Your plan in action
Asking nothing in advance
For Your life and death dance,
And despite all that You do,
You still leave us to choose.
