#pithypoems – Acts 11

We imagine ourselves saving poor needy souls –
The tender, the frail, the young and the old.

But what if God calls and another repents –
Someone found guilty of the sickest offense.

Are we willing to serve those who shouldn’t be saved –
Molesters and rapists – the worst kind of depraved.

We’d call them to justice and demand that they pay
But if Christ chooses mercy, who can stand in the way?

Will we still take the gospel to the foul and obscene
And know He is capable of calling them clean?
