2015.08.30: welcoming the Word

Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. – 2 Jas 1:21b-22

words heard but not welcomed
in the soul will not take root
and will die like inert seeds
buried never again to be
seen in the light of day

so also will perish the souls
that do not welcome the Word
taken flesh and blood
their corpses will be buried
never again to see the Light
