Only One

Many people pray
Some to deaf ears
Others to the open air
And some to the opened
ear of all ears.
~
Most people want to hear
more good news about themselves
about their purpose and their future
only good news while the best news remains
to be heard
by all
ears-

The Good News of Christ!

His dying to end death,
His resurrection to awaken all hope
Grace for the blind eye and the deaf ear
suddenly able to see and to hear
and to live
justified
and
redeemed.

~
All people,
whether glib or silent,
have something to say
and wish to be heard and hailed
but there remains only one
subject worth preaching,

The Word of God
regarding
Christ
!

  1. To focus on anything else, in the long run, seems folly. He is the “Word” and it is this “Word” that we preach–apart from which there is no salvation! Even “the glib and silent” must say it: He is the Only One.
    Beautifully said.

    – Yes, we have succumb to teaching what itching ears want to hear. May the Lord bring repentance, and truly return us to “the word of faith regarding Christ”.
