Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Behold Him!

I wrote this poem while thinking about a message I was going to share.  Karen recorded me reading it so I thought I'd share with all of you.  - Josh

 

 

Behold Him!

By Josh Parsley

Behold Him!
Let's take our eyes and our thoughts and hold him
Allowing the scriptures and spirit to mold him as he really is
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
From eternity past contemplating that man's innocent state would not last
How would he redeem?
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Coming into a world that will reject Him
First entering in a manager and in a place that treated him like a stranger
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
He grows and matures in stature and in wisdom
Astonishing the learned with his truth-filled comprehension
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Now in maturity, choosing disciples
A team that to some, were unlikeables.
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Healing blindness, doing good, forgiving sin like only He could
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
In betrayal, suffering pain,
And to the point of fulfilling all that he claimed
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Slain on the cross for all to see
To transfer you where he will be
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
In the tomb full of death and all that's gloom and detest
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
On the 3rd day- to their dismay-
Risen! And full of all that true life could convey!
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
With the disciples, teaching truth
And that they should go and share this good news
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Rising high, into the sky
With the angel saying, "He'll come again, but not as he came to die."
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
With power and might
This time returning to fight but with his mere word make everything right.
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Now in Heaven with worship
And multitudes from every nation
Behold Him!

Behold Him!
Not for a mere moment
But letting your mind be continually transformed until that glorious appointment.
Behold Him!
