This Jesus who changed the world
and changed my world
He never did get too comfortable.
And those twelve guys who followed Him around…
one boy’s lunch feeding thousands, get up and walk…
Storm calming, magic fishing, water to wine, a meal feeding the masses again.
And it seemed that just when they thought they had this Jesus figured out, there was
water walking, wild preaching, cheek-turning, two-mile going, upside-down words of Life.
And then there was
Lame standing, blind seeing, deaf hearing, mute speaking, table-turning
Dead, Alive again.
Eat My flesh and drink My blood.
I Am leaving but that’s good.
And it seems like no matter how hard they tried, they never could get
So I lay in bed awake last night,
And I wondered why this itchy faith.
This soul-stretching heart-wrenching hope-building way of living
Should come as a surprise to me.
He was and He did.
He is and He does.
That just won’t do.
