Poem: Called to Death

Our family (GRASSROOTS Church) is walking through two weeks of preparation towards Easter. This is to reflect upon Christ and our union with Him and one another. It’s my hope to blog each day as I reflect upon the scripture in view of culture and context.

church beckons me
– to drink in
– to consume
– to receive
– to believe
– towards satisfaction
– towards experience
– towards convenience
– towards isolation
as I passively walk towards my death

Jesus beckons me to
– to drink in (his blood)
– to consume (his body)
– to receive
– to believe
– towards death
– towards obedience
– towards sacrifice
– towards community
as I actively participate in the death of Christ
