Without reason

Why does Paul press upon me so?
Are we so different – he and I?
Surrounded by ruthless righteousness without reason

Paul repented;
regarded as rubbish
those strengths others saw in him…

are we so different
he and I?

Both rescued by resurrection;
reaching for redemption
possessing a strength
that comes from Christ…

why does HE press upon me so?

Are we so different
he and I –
He regarded as rubbish
those things others pressed upon him;
sought only peace
in God’s own will

“What rubbish”
they said –
railroaded him –
and so we found
redemption without reason.
