Existential Jesus

Kierkegaard was right

Suffering is not the end,

but the redefinition

the renewal

of all things.

our suffering,

though may be the end of our

romantic notions

our theories and projects,

does not catapult us into chaos

nor consume us,

but rather catapult us into completion.

upon the cross, Christ proclaimed

“it is finished”

but that was not even the end of His EARTHLY

ministry

He returned after His death to continue

doling out the Great Commission

upon which His church was spread.

and so in death we also continue

our suffering

is only just the beginning

of an abundant life.
