Invitation

death and darkness
shroud the land,
scaling mountains,
shifting sands;
creating chaos,
trampling hope,
denying people
the power to cope;
dragging downward
laden souls,
leaving shipwrecks
on the shoals.

yet life and light
in battle roam,
redeeming hearts,
restoring homes,
lifting heads
once sagging drear,
offering love
where once was fear.

'tis He who reigns
in victory,
'tis He whose form
upon the tree,
though scourged
and stretched
and stained by sin,
invites the world
to enter in.

~

I John 5:12 ~ He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
