Theology Part 3: Pursuance

Go and do likewise;
what you have seen,
now do, and do with joy,
            and what
you have heard once
whispered
            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
            pounding
            heart, stone
replaced with flesh and life
                         instead

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

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