Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

Outside The Garden


He followed outside the garden

Pursuing fellowship

With the fallen

“Why are you so angry—

So dejected,

If you do well you will be accepted.”

He didn’t do well

He wasn’t accepted

Nor did he overcome the sin

That was crouching at his door

He did not master it

So it mastered him

Exiled and alone

Cain fled to a city of refuge

Because He killed His brother

Because He believed the lie

“Has God said?”

There was One who came

To restore hearts of the fallen

Back to the Father

And back to the Garden

Jesus lived among us

Showed us what the Father is like

Son of God

Cocooned in human flesh

Fully God

Fully Man

Seeker of the lost

Perfect sacrifice

For all sin

Suffered, bled, died

On Calvary’s Cross

Third day rose again

Fully alive

Ascended back to the Father

Prepared a place in heaven

For born again redeemed children

He still comes


Not the well or perfect—

Jesus seeks

the lost and broken

Desert dwellers

Wilderness wanderers


Broken hearted


Cast a ways

Helpless and hopeless

Guilty and ashamed

He comes seeking

those separated from God

with this good news

You can be born again

and go back to

the Father

and find new life in Christ

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, not of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12,13 NASB).
