Words of Life
Another Jewish boy reaches adolescence,
Gets to read the Scriptures with the men.
Yet this one is different:
The things He says,
The questions He asks
Bring ancient texts to life.
Scholars turn into students,
As God’s Word is opened up to them.
Suddenly they are interrupted:
Worried parents enter the room.
“Son, why have you done this to us?
Look, your father and I have sought you anxiously.”
“Why do you seek Me?
Did you not know that I must be about my Father’s business?”
Memories come back:
Had not the angel announced,
“He will be called the Son of God.”?
Light has come into darkness;
Truth is revealed.
But new wine requires new wineskins.
Are you prepared to receive His truth?
Are you ready to be transformed by His words of life?
