Not Cheap

We are forgiven and filled with grace;
shall we not yet repent?
We are in communion with a radical master;
shall we not confess who we are and recognize him?
We are baptized in water pure and eternal;
and where is our discipline in this prevenient grace?
I seize new life in this new year.
New life came with the cost of death.
I submit myself today;
let it be so.
The master is not in any establishment;
disciples, we seek him. We are needy.
Joy in the Word!

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
