A Sword of the Spirit

The living word of God
beating in the spirit, our hearts bearing his message
our hope living within in, guiding us
changing us, agents of the commission
bringing hope, bearing witness
God’s saving grace, the fulfillment
God’s steadfast love revealed
in the holy scriptures
and in our lives of faith
and those who have gone before
back to the patriarchs, the disciples, the apostles
each carrying the sword into battle
in their time, against the enemies
of the love of God
a sword to tear down the walls
to bring us back to God
