Poem: "Funeral Flowers" by Librae Jackson, Deacon
THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..
If we're alive here for thousands of hours,
eventually we'll die, and our lives here will have only been a few hours.

Funeral flowers,
if paid attention to,
can, in many ways, mention truth
unto humans, with power;
silently speaking and reminding us
that our own lives are just
a short-lived vapor; as temporary as the lives of the
beautiful flowers,
that arise once
and then fade away. They dry up;
they disintegrate.
This is their fate.

Likewise, us - you and I will soon die; (huh)
Soon enough will be our due time to
reprise to the dust.
The pretty will lose beauty; the strong will lose power.

Funeral flowers
tell us that it shouldn't be a surprise to us.

Some new flowers will soon be a prize for us,
given out of respect, at our respective funerals,
by loved ones and friends, as they come to reminisce and cry for us.

In The Lord's certain plans,
each of us will have that one circumstance, when our souls are required of us.

But how many people are really ready
for when a particular situation becomes deadly?

That's when it all will end. That's also when it'll all begin.
This is common sense, but not so common among men.

After death comes the judgment.
Rappers talk death, but none of them really want it.
Everyone who died so hard, so far, believe me, they fronted.

What can any human facade do against God?
He has an inner view of all your sins and flaws.
Will you confess and seek mercy, or stay cursed, condemned and lost?

The Gospel is a call from God.
Also, this God who calls
sent His Son: the sinless One, Whom sinful men hung
upon a cross.

That evil human invention
was purposed to be used as the means of divine intervention.
He completed redemption
by the spilling of His own blood, for sins' remission.

Give Him immediate attention.
Find out if you've indeed been forgiven;
and where, for eternity, you'll live when
the not too distant end, upon you descends.

All you've got to do is repent
and believe the Gospel: That God so
Loved you, that He gave His Son to,
in essence, face death in your stead, as your Substitute;
so that when death comes for you,
there won't be a grudge from the Holy Judge, whose
righteous gavel can crush you.
Instead, He'll unravel His love for you,
and show Himself gracious, while remaining just, too.
But to trust Christ is what you must do.
You're alive now. So right now, treasure your own soul and find out, for real, what is true.

Funeral flowers, can reveal something to you,
but still, it's nothing new.

At any moment, and one day, definitely,
this breath in me will exit me.
Funeral flowers teach lessons of brevity.
Yes, life is beautiful, but death is included in our destiny.

As long as this world turns, persons will learn
from someone's funeral flowers, including ours.

Everyday, people are carried away, to be buried in graves.
Shouldn't we prayerfully prepare for another place
and care for our soul's eternal estate?

We're inclined to linger and wait; put it out of our minds and procrastinate.
Meanwhile, flowers wilt away, as if to say: "Don't delay!"
