The Emancipated Man

The Emancipated Man

Ah, the story of redemption

In man’s carnal minded search,

For the pleasures this world offers

In which he finds himself immersed.

 

Self medicating loneliness

In hedonistic style,

Of self gratified pursuit in life

Of all that God reviles.

 

Yet in loving fatherly affection

God sent His only Son,

To intervene on our behalf

In spite of all we’ve done,

 

To enter our humanity

And live a sinless life,

Be crucified in our place

Then 3 days later… Rise

 

To demonstrate the power He holds

In life now over death,

So when we place our trust in Him

We would have no doubts left,

 

But have faith in our Salvation

And then trust Him at His word,

That all He tells us in the Scriptures

Has or will occur.

 

And that now that we’ve been Born Again

We have Eternal Life,

We now are children of our God

Joint heirs of God with Christ.

 

Our names recorded up in heaven

In the Book of Life,

Our new destination’s heaven

Which is our new birthright.

 

No longer chasing pleasure

To fill that emptiness inside,

But enjoying all the treasures

That God has set aside,

 

That complete the missing pieces

In this puzzle we call life,

At one with our Creator

As our spirits now unite.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
