My Crucified Christ

For the past few days John Piper has been releasing a couplet via Twitter from a poem I am guessing is titled My Crucified Christ.  I have rejoiced in these lines and I hope they edify you as well.  I will update this post if he tweets anything further.

My Crucified Chrsit

Condemned to fill this ancient festival:

You are my Holy Criminal.

 

Cut off from life by every man, and worse:

You are my dear All-blessing Curse

 

Reviled with bitter gall in every slur:

You are my Sweetest Vinegar.

 

Defiled, defamed by my defection:

You are my Perfect Imperfection.
