Pour: A poem about death and life


We are called to pour out ourselves for the lost and forgotten, the broken and the marred.

That is what Christ did for us.

Although it is not something we accomplish by our own strength, he graciously enables us through his Spirit to take part in the redemption of all creation.

We live in the already-but-not-yet, but God’s Kingdom is coming, and the Body of Christ is the vessel that will usher in a new era.

Our actions become prophetic utterance, reflecting, enacting, anticipating the second, final coming of our Lord to rule the world.
