Passion

Passion.

Desire, focus, purpose, mission,

A cross

A week

Passion.

Praises, palms, crowds, questions,

A man

A king

Passion.

Preparation, covenant, body and blood,

An opportunity

A betrayal

Passion.

Pleading, sweating, sleeping, rising, scattering

A garden

A kiss

Passion.

Mocking, trying, beating, crowning,

A promise

A bruised heel

Passion.

Washed hands, mangled flesh, broken heart,

A dark hour

A holy hill

Passion.

Nails, splinters, hammers, jeers, gleeful serpent

A sorrow

A hope

Passion.

Silence, blood and water, declaration, sealed tomb,

A burial

A completion

Passion.

Earthquake, three days, visitors, empty tomb,

A question

A wonder

Passion.

Living Savior, elated saints, fulfilled promise, bruised head.

A defeated serpent

A victorious Lord

Passion.

Then, now, and always.

Passion.
