“Have Faith in God”

“Have Faith in God”

A poem by Jeff Lopez. This poem is a summary of Mark chapter 11…

You cleansed the temple,
you withered the tree.
Your authority is ample,
but they did not see.

“Have faith in God” you said,
for doubting finds no answer.
They asked for proof instead,
questioning your very power.

Let the hearer assume,
let the petitioner know,
only when trusting you,
will your power show.

Hosanna they had cried,
but did not understand.
Forgiveness was their need,
but also your command.
