are those who read Gospel conversations,
and follow the trail of Truth back to the nature of God.
“Greater than the Temple,”
“Lord of the Sabbath,”
His words revealed
and a set of priorities wholly out of step with the elite.
Jesus used the sharp edge of sarcasm to slice through hypocrisy,
Scalding words to remedy a lukewarm righteousness.
And reading today, I am both warmed and singed,
rejoicing that my reward is great in heaven,
while knowing full well, in the meantime,
enemies to love,
cloaks and tunics to surrender,
and a radical holiness to be lived in the unseen places,
One Smoldering Offering at a time.
