in perfect, fearless grace.
We taunt and jeer.
yet Peace is on His face.
His hands of mercy
now are bound.
Foul tongues are loose instead,
spitting sharp as thicket’s thorns
forced onto His head.
though bruised and beaten raw
by hands of kings and priests,
now bears the weight of sinful hordes
yet stands in utter Peace.
His brow bleeds tears of crimson deep
which robes Christ in their flow,
yet still He stands in perfect Peace
so we can surely know.
True Peace is not the gentle fruit
of meditative flight
but is the wine Obedience pours
into the darkest night.
Peace is not cheap.
It comes with cost,
adherence to God’s Will.
When one life proves, “Thy will be done.”
Peace shall that one life fill.
No, happiness is not the same
as deep abiding Peace.
Oft times while groaning in the pain
our hearts still find release.
For as the Savior stands this day
before all men of earth.
He proves obedience is the key
to a heart where Peace is birthed.
“But Jesus held his peace, and the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
Matthew 26:63 KJV
