Life Eternal

All heaven struggled, good and evil clash; Lucifer's crowd were cast to earth in shame. Mankind's plot to reach heaven, mere slapdash; God upset language; words became a game. In His hometown, Jesus bound His powers; miracles in Nazareth were blocked out. Were their skeptics so different from ours? God clouds the ears of those who dare to doubt. Sovereign insight is way beyond man's light. Facing death on a cross, no small bother; repentance from sin brings life eternal. Christ's vision requires infinite foresight - mankind united with God, the Father. Existence sans God is life infernal.

Reason, I very much enjoyed reading your poem and especially liked the line "mankind united with God, the Father". I find his offer to mankind to be reunited with himself by offering his Son to die is the greatest of gifts. Blessings ~ John

stemming from Jesus' prayer recorded in John 17 verses 20-23 "mankind united with God" is a powerful thought that I can't get my mind to comprehend but I accept it as truth and a great gift. Thanks for commenting, John, especially before the judging.
