The Perfect Word
Immaculate bounce as your words strike
Lifting my expectations and desires,
Ready to take off
My heart races from top to bottom
Wondering if I can get suspended
With the cadence of your expression ,
Like dropping a pail
It causes a ripple motion
In the depth of my heart
Disturbing the norm
Drawing filth from within
According to your design
You outline the structure of my heart
Pulling down the foundations not in your plan
As a builder you slowly assemble my attention to you
Forming a new perspective
Creating an essence like yours
According to your terms
Since there are no conditions to your person
Warnings are given on words
But you are the perfect word
Who is faultless and blameless
No error comes out of you
You embody goodness
You speak love
Translating yourself into others
So they relate with you
Awe does it no justice
The position I am in of you
For by love I am in you".
"People say that if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at all, but what I have to say is perfect; the gospel." - Feyifunmi Seth David.
In this riveting piece of clever wordplays and personifications, the emphasis of the writer places focuses on the words which describe the character of Jesus and the power of the gospel. For example, suppose you ever read the Songs of Solomon. In that case, this piece bears a similar tone on how descriptive and vivid they attempt to communicate their message.
The writer describes the "words" like a gentle cadence which is irresistible not to listen further when heard or a builder that tears down that which is old and makes something new. Every line describes and expresses the reality of being a new creation in Christ Jesus; Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own.
Because of this decision, we don't evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don't look at Him that way anymore. Now we look inside, and what we see anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. So the old life is gone; a new life emerges! Look at it! All this comes from God, who settled the relationship between us and Him....... God put the world square with Himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering the forgiveness of sins.
God has given us the task of telling everyone what He has done. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God's work of making things right between them. We're speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he's already a friend with you.
How? you ask. In Christ. God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God. (2 Corinthians 5:14b-21 MSG, emphasis and ellipsis mine)
