obedience//a reflection

unobstructed obedience of
the only one who had any right to deny it
with all authority given to him
he still chose humiliation and
the degradation of his body for
our souls.
holes in his hands for our sin-washed cleansing, condemning
himself to death.
the fullness of God on earth
made himself me, formed from dirt
humbled himself to nothing, so we know nothing we do earns
our redemption, only
the unobstructed obedience of
the only one who had any right to deny it.
