A Thought: End Justified by Means

By grace, Jesus’ means have justified my end.

‘know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in[a] Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified.’
– Galatians 2:16

Rest and Silence

I wanted an end
To let go worldly bonds;
Had hope faded and died?
Or lame faith abandoned?
Why was there no joy
Of recognition in my life?
I wanted an end
To internalised violence;
To let discord conclude,
And let the rest be silence.

I needed to die
To self service and sin;
Retrieved hope must revive
And full faith persevere;
Joy’s welcome return
In the light of a Saviour,
Finding only in Him
Godly rhythm and cadence;
Harmony – reign once more,
And let the past be silenced.
