Genesis 1:26

This poem is inspired by the pause in Genesis 1:26. See my comments in Today in God’s Word for more on the background

“Creation” by Jeff Lopez

He spoke the word and it was true,
But come to man he spoke a pause.
Fully aware of what Adam would do,
Father and Son considered their cause.
To what great ends would God’s grace go?
Twas the Cross alone, that could truly show.
