Pierced - by Scott Eagan

Everyone will see Him, including those who pierced Him.

- Revelation 1:7


When the sharp point pricks the skin or the razor edge parts the flesh blood flows freely, pain raises its head alarm spreads through the body – brain, heart, spirit and unless the crimson river is staunched the wound attended to, panic sets in trauma, shock, anger and fear fill the senses.

Retaliation is often our immediate response wounded, we must defend ourselves, fight back ...puncture for a puncture… ...threat and cut and injury for every infliction… at least a sanction, a barrier to address the attack some form of offensive action, retribution to right the wrong that is unless we are in Christ.

God-become-man knew all the wounds bled from cuts of the scourge, bruised pride of religion suffered pricks of long thorns and deep insults of words His life ending in blood and water on the Cross with nary a word, a rebuttal, a defense offering up spirit and truth in the Father’s love and inviting us all to do the same.
