The Disciples Message

(on Paul and the church)

 

He may not have said

what you might have said

were you the one to say it

Does it matter?

 

At least he said it

and that matters

 

He may have used words

you might not have used

were you the one to use them

Does it matter?

 

At least he used them

and that matters

 

He may have shown passion

you might not have shown

were you the one to show it

Does it matter?

 

At least he showed some

and that matters

 

He may have done things

you might not have done

were you the one to do them

Does it matter?

 

At least he did them

and that matters

 

What he said and did before you

whether believer or deceived

whether treasured or taunted

that matters very much

 

He raised his voice against the night

and spoke God's truth unfearing

 

He may have given you discomfort

He may have trodden your delicacy

But did you see the point he was making

instead of how he made it

Or were your senses too offended

to shed a tear for what made him weep

and weep for that which breaks God's heart

 

Would to God that you could see

Would to God you would understand

Evil prances bold before your eyes

this worlds sees, rejoices, welcomes

what you claim to hate yet do not stop

Satan flaunts his will yet you sit by

as death consumes forsaken lives

 

Life dies within the very place

where your silence acquiesces

 

He might not say

what you are saying

now, in venomous displeasure

Does it matter?

 

Yes! It matters!

For Gods sake, care!

Care more for the death before you

than for your offended sense!

 

Live!
