Rule-Breaking Love

Jesus Christ - an original oil painting portrait with crown of thorns.

Here is Love
that breaks all the rules –
coming in flesh,
consorting with fishermen and harlots,
touching the unclean,
pouring Itself out unstintingly
to bleed with bleeding
women and wounded men.
Love that chooses
death in order to create
There is no safety in this Love
only hard-won salvation
calling us to enter itself,
take up the instrument of it’s humiliation,
and live and die in it’s embrace,
willingly suffer the penalty of rule-
breaking, because there is no other way
to mend a broken world
