• "My father and my mother have forsaken me

The Rejection of Rejection


Unthinkable

irrational

impossible to conceive.

The Trinity

torn asunder.

The Son

wrenched from His Father.

Salvation realized.

I am

the liar.

I am

the thief.

I am

the gossip.

I am

the rebel.

I have wanted

my own way

in

my own time

at

my appointed place.

I have rebelled

against Your law

and I have

set up my own.

I deny

Your kingship

while building

a kingdom of my own.

I think

my plan

is better than Yours.

I crave

the sovereignty

that only You should have.

But You did

the inconceivable;

You accomplished

the undoable.

You stood

in my place

and You satisfied

God's wrath.

But

in the process,

the Three in One

was torn in two.

In the process,

the Father

did the most painful thing

that has ever been done.

He turned His back

on You.

You withstood

this pain

so that I would never have to.

You took my

rejection

so that I only ever have

acceptance.

So, I can

rest assured,

I can

live in hope,

I can

enjoy true peace,

because I know

that You are always with me.

For long ago

on the cross

Your rejection

was for me

the final rejection of rejection.
