LOST

“Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn’t leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it? When he has found it, he carries it on his shoulders, rejoicing.  Luke 15:4-5

Before I understood
you had a plan
Not just for me,
but for every man
woman and child.
A sacrifice
which would suffice
to bridge the gap, 
tear the curtain in two
opening up the view
to reconciliation,
restoration
and repatriation
The fig leaves changed 
into robes of righteousness,
the moment I said "Yes!"
You don't have to believe
in Adam and Eve,
or the seduction of the serpent.
All that is required
is for you to concede
that Christ is what you need
and that his death was not in vain
because he rose again
and you will praise his name.
