So, despite the fact that I’m really busy at the moment, with incoming exams, it’s that time again. Spoken word poetry. This is actually the first poem I’m posting that I’ve performed before. On a Wednesday, after messing up pretty badly at a previous ministration during the weekend (lol, the embarrassment still kinda lingers in my brain, though it’s been almost a year since it happened).
The title is ‘It Baffles Me’, inspired by a line from Beautiful Eulogy’s ‘Wonderful’ off their debut album ‘Satellite Kite’…
The mystery of the Incarnation, Crucifixion and Resurrection…
It baffles me.
It baffles me how the Maker of Majesty could become a Man and die on a cross to save a lost humanity.
Many love stories I’ve heard in my lifetime, but this is the ultimate masterpiece,
Of how the Bridegroom loved us and gave Himself for us so we’d be turned from enemies to family,
How He absorbed the wrath meant for us so we would receive divine amnesty,
You see, we’ve not been spared just a little, no, we’ve been forgiven massively,
Regenerated by the Holy Spirit, we are now new creations, seeking Him actively,
Loving God and man until He comes back so we can go home and forever live happily,
In the joyful presence of the Infinite Master,
Where righteousness, holiness and love is the standard.
It baffles me, but actually, for the logical mind, I don’t need your answers please,
Coz I live by faith and no atheistic or scientific diction could ever convince me that this is all just some sort of fiction or fallacies,
I believe with all of my heart in the Son of God who chose to hang for me
And for you, yes!
The Great I AM who left His divine aura of heavenly majesty,
Put on human flesh and walked this earth humbly and candidly,
Allowed the heathens to beat and nail Him to a cross, oh my goodness, His blood all over Golgotha was splattering,
But, He went up on that tree and died a criminal’s death so that you and I can be free,
Cancelling our debt and all the penalties that it incurred, yes, now we have relief.
And I pray that as you hear this, you too will realise that you can believe and can be freed,
By the One who loved and chose you long before mangoes and apples hanged from trees,
Just go down on your knees, acknowledge your fallenness, cry out for mercy and I assure you, He will be answering
Because He was sent to seek and save that which was lost,
And I assure you, He won’t relent until He has it all,
So stop holding back, and surrender to the Lord,
Jesus Christ. The only Way to the Father. That is all!!!
