He was Dead.

Past the Point-Of-No-Return
Beyond Hope of Healing
A poster child of unanswered prayer
Underscoring God's Silence

Against this macabre backdrop
Mary and Martha mourned
the Loss of their Beloved Lazerus
Soaked in the Almighty's Silence
And the Loudness of Anticlimax

Friends, in response,
Surrounded the sisters
with flimsy songs of the Sweet By-and-By

While Jesus came on the scene
to deliver a Powerful Here-and-Now

The world's thirst has grown too great 
to be slaked with Sunday morning sentimental slush,
Man's Very Real Need
for The Bread of Life
can no longer be placated 
with potlucks, pithy pulpits, and polished prose

When the Rubber meets the Road
and men need Miracles,
The Beloved of God better Know their God
and be ready to offer


" speech and preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of God."
-1 Corinthians 2:4-5
