The Great Mystery

We are fascinated

With the unknown

The unseen

That which we know is real

But have no way to prove it

 

Maybe the unknown

Does not want to be known

 

Maybe what is a mystery

Wants to remain a mystery

 

Maybe the mystery

Wants to be left alone

Shrouded in darkness

 

Nevertheless

We tear at her veil

Uncovering her every secret

Bringing to light all that she is

 

Yet we still remain

Mystified by her

 

Church of Christ

There is Christ
And his church
His wife
Who is his cross
His body
His kingdom

He is hers
And she is his
They belong
To each other
For they are
Each other

Intertwined
Inseparable
They represent
The two
In one flesh

 

Ephesians 5:31-32
“…and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

 

Bride of Christ

When a wife gives herself

Completely to her husband

She literally becomes him

And loses herself

Her life becomes his

The two become one

Literally

She becomes him

And he becomes her

 

She loses her life

But gains a husband

Who gave his life

For hers

 

Ephesians 5:32

“This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

The Unknown

We are fascinated

With the unknown

The unseen

That which we know is real

But have no way to prove it

 

Maybe the unknown

Does not want to be known

 

Maybe what is a mystery

Wants to remain a mystery

 

Maybe the mystery

Wants to be left alone

Shrouded in darkness

 

Nevertheless

They tear at her veil

Uncovering her every secret

Bringing to light all that she is

 

Yet they still remain

Mystified by her

And still do not know her

 

Come Together

My relationship

With Christ

Is not physical

But spiritual

That which cannot

Be defined

 

The physical

Is only a way

To understand

The spiritual

 

++++++++++++

 

Is the primal scream

From she

Who cries out

In pain

To be delivered

 

Or from she

Who cries out

In ecstasy

As she comes together

With her Lord

 

Ephesians 6:31-31

“…and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
