From the Fire

It has never been enough.
The first gifts in the garden
did not satiate nor was
mankind humble,
but deceived and proud, a pair.
Need of redemption is
demonstrated right there……..

With dominion we ravage
ancient forests, and pound
our refuse into the earth,
and infuse our grain
with chemicals,
and medicate our waters,
and poison our pollinators,
in our reckless pursuits.

Sweet redemption through
Jesus, who lay down His soul
and paid the ransom
from the consuming fire
that held us captive.

We are set free. Free indeed.
