On Becoming Truly Human

Endless: Permafrost - Lost In Solitude

Based on 1 Corinthians 12:

On Becoming Truly Human
by Michael Doyle

On becoming human resplendent
We were never meant to be independent
But rather communal in the nature of our being
Living in a communion of love with all we’re seeing

Love is the essence of the truest theology
Locked heart into heart with the Holy Trinity
It’s the Christian life as a process of sanctification
On which we need to focus our utmost dedication

Vine and branches serve as a vivid illustration
Set before all as a simile of humble elocution
That one branch alone cannot make barreled wine
It takes an eternal vineyard to flourish as divine

Into the wine of a new life in its sacred overflowing
That moves beyond transcendent and into the knowing
And as its satisfying result, love grows for one another
Accepting as it is our walk as sister and as brother

For just as the body of Christ is one of many members
It serves us well when we keep our faith and remember
Quenching the thirst of all we believe and in what we think
As the Spirit keeps us right and away from the brink

Each of us is meant to be as we are and yet being a part
Connected as it is from the core and held together in heart
The whole of it is the sum of us fit together as one body
And in fitting together we serve well our place in God’s family

From all of this, it is easy enough to see that which we should
That all is in accordance with God’s plan and working for good
And Christ is the sufficiency to carry us through our trials
Regardless of how heavy the burden nor how long the miles
