made strange, polluted, sometimes muted,
sublimely suggested, even protested,
and sometimes requested, digested, and
lived in truth.
I AM, says the Creator, our Maker, Protector,
our Savior, in Whose favor we are blessed,
and Whose request is that we love Him
above all else, and our neighbor as ourselves;
LOVE is His choice, Love is His Voice.
Zephaniah the Prophet had hard things to say
about how God would judge the sins
of the people in his day, but concludes
his message with words promised true,
saying to the faithful, "God will save you."
Zechariah the Prophet also heard from God
advising the people to turn from paths of sin;
"Don't follow the ways of your fathers who
have turned to do wrong, but follow the ones
who obeyed Me and then could sing My songs.
Luke recorded Jesus' words, a directive
for us today, "Go into the streets
and suburbs, compel the people to come in;
I want My House to be filled by those who
have been rescued from scaring sin."
Everyone is invited; yes, even if dragged
to the Lord of Love. They must hear clearly
and understand that God does judge sins
but compellingly loves and waits for them.
What did Jesus say? "Go! Tell! Compel!"
Sometimes this command seems very hard to do,
it may seem heavy and burdensome to me and you;
but the heavy work has been done, by the Son,
and now, for you and me, it is only to SIZZLE
with God's Energy, and see those He loves set free.
