In Light of Ferguson {A Poem}

woman with head bent

God created man in His own image,

in the image of God He created him;

male and female…

Whether chalkboard black

or cotton ball white

We are imago dei-

created in the image of God.

He formed our inward parts and

knitted us together in our mother’s womb.

We should give thanks for

we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Our worth is not based on a check-marked box

declaring our race.

While mere man may condemn us

with preconceived notions

because of the color of our skin,

there is now no condemnation

for those in Christ Jesus.

For whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

All that matters is a new creation-

The reconciled now ministers of reconciliation.

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream-

It’s culmination at Revelation chapter seven.

Where all tribes, peoples and languages

from every nation

stand before the Lamb’s throne

crying out, “Salvation belongs to our God!”

One day a New Jerusalem where

God will dwell with man

wiping away every tear,

death shall be no more,

no mourning, no crying and no pain.

Justice executed. Peace eternal.

Come, Lord Jesus, Come.

Scripture references: Genesis 1:27, Psalm 139:13-14, Romans 8:1, 2 Cor. 5:17-18 and Revelation 21: 3-4
