Theology Part 3: Pursuance

Go and do likewise;
what you have seen,
now do, and do with joy,
            and what
you have heard once
            in your ear,
proclaim it from the rooftops;
                          now shout

the truth that rings
in your ears; proclaim
in word and deed and
            in the beat
of your changed, now
            heart, stone
replaced with flesh and life

of death. What deeds
consumed your life
in days before: now toss them
the winds of yesterday;
            the man
from Galilee whose steps now lead

love’s Cross. Watch king
throw off His crown, and take
thorns upon His brow;
            now see
all vast eternity’s wisdom
            in Him;
see His scars and learn; now go and do
