The Living Word

Jun 2017    

The glamour of new messiahs

enunciating words

that give flesh and form

to tenets

framed by master-spirits

– words compacted with designer genes

to awaken and impassion

the gullible

who form the coterie of believers,

capturing the headlines

of tabloids and media,

have currency and season;

their tenure is ephemeral

like the tide.

 

But the Word of the Divine

thrives on the buffeting

of the sandstorms of opposition,

having no hour-glass.

Worms consume

the flesh of human memory

but the Word of God

remains unadulterated

by the swirl of centuries,

fresh as the day

the Spirit first conceived it:

speaking to us in a voice

that cuts through bone and marrow,

giving new enduring life

to all who believe

and treasure it.

Dr Oliver Seet –

is a member of Wesley Methodist Church and a Board Director of the Metropolitan YMCA.
