1/22 Poem: Come See / Come Saw

Standard

Like this. Like that.

If we want to dwell in the place
Where we get to bask in God’s grace
Then we must be willing to leave
Our skeptical self-centered sieve

The first challenge is just to come
Without knowing what we’ll become
The harder step: learning to see
The bitter truth that sets us free

It sounds too simplistic
But here’s the real trick:

As we leave behind the old Law
We get to become what we saw

Jesus looked around and saw them following. “What do you want?” he asked them.
“Sir,” they replied, “where do you live?”
Come and see,” he said.

John 1:38-39
