Suffering Servant

on
May 29, 2018

Called to be great,

Yet in doubt and despair,

Trapped in prison,

Does Jesus even care?

 

A forerunner for Jesus,

A life of sacrifice,

Made many converts,

Even baptized Christ,

 

Heralded His name,

When he had clear vision,

Called Him the Savior,

Before he was imprisoned,

 

Suffering is a tool,

That exposes our humanity,

No one is exempted,

From the stressors of calamity,

 

Blessed is the man,

Who doesn’t fall away,

But stands in temptation,

Despite the delay.
