THE SUFFERING SERVANT
———-
________________________________________________________________
———-
when my brother falls on Calvary, do I scoff….
when my brother thirsts on Calvary, do I spit….
when my brother is tired on Calvary, do I dance….
when my brother is crying on Calvary, do I laugh….
———-
when my brother is nailed on Calvary, do I boast….
when my brother is dying on Calvary, do I run….
when my brother is buried in the tomb, do I grieve….
when my brother is rising from the tomb, do I rejoice….
———-
when I sin, do I righteously repent….
when I sin, does my brother grieve….
when my brother sins, do I repent….
when my brother sins, do I grieve….
———-
when I sin, am I ashamed, or sorrowful….
for one is pride, one is humility….
when I sin, do I ask and receive God’s forgiveness
through holy way prayer in trust as the humility….
or do I dismiss my sin as the torrent in the whisper….
———-
when I am forgiven, do I persevere patiently in Christ
until the end…..
when I am forgiven, do I thank God….
———-
when I am weak and fail to persevere, do I trust men
or do I trust Jesus Christ in His Mercy….
———-
there is and shall remain only one the directive>>>>
“Jesus, I trust in You, all the holy way within my soul….”
———-
to remain complacent remains a boast of holiness
with the quench that “all is well” while still in the body….
———-
to be obedient to Our Lord is to be sober, to have a
fasting thirst for Him, and to silently bow low in the heart….
———-
“feeling a glory”  is never the same as “knowing His Glory….”
within….
———-
to know His Glory within is to close your eyes, in gratitude,
persevering to die with Him, toward authentic resurrection….
———-
there is no pretending with God….only the holy authenticity….
