Shekinah: Love

We couldn’t fulfill it

We didn’t fear Him

We refused to remember Him

All He’d done

To have mercy on sinners

We scorned His law

We went our own way

And yet still He had promises

And He promised to fulfill them

For His Name’s sake

.

Pillar of cloud

Pillar of fire

Shekinah

.

He humbled Himself

Came as a man

He lived and breathed

And walked among us

He spoke words amazing to us

And we were amazed

And yet we despised Him

We did not believe Him

And so we crucified Him—

If indeed He was God,

Why didn’t He save Himself

From such a shameful death?

.

Jesus

The Christ

King of the Jews

Shekinah

.

He was laid in a rich man’s tomb

The stone was sealed

The guards stood watch

So no trickery would befall his body

And yet the earth shook

The stone rolled away

The guards became as dead men

And the angels did say

“He is not here! He is risen!”

And all the women were amazed

Jesus said “Mary.”

Jesus came into the locked room

Jesus rose up into the heavens

Jesus is alive!

.

Cloud in the heavens

Took away my Savior

Shekinah

.

God had mercy because of His love

God humbled Himself because of His love

Christ said nothing because of His love—

He was the sacrifice of love.

Death could not hold Him because of His love

He appeared to many because of His love

He ascended to Heaven because of His love—

He will indeed return.

His Spirit dwells in us now because of His love

How much more ought we to love?

Shekinah, His glory dwelling, is all around us

Indeed in us

Let us love every person we meet

Even if they aren’t so sweet

Remember God…
