I have spent the last few days thinking and thinking on the theme of God breaking through darkness with light. We see this thought woven throughout Scripture and finding ultimate expression in the gospel. Here is a poem that attempts to capture the gospel angle on light conquering darkness.
This poem was inspired by many of the things I wrote in the previous post. I have been thinking a lot about how the flood relates to the gospel. This is my attempt to capture these thoughts in a more artistic way. If your curious about the biblical background of the poem, you can check out the flood narrative in Genesis 6-9, the various crucifixion narratives in the gospels, and the doctrine of propitiation as found in Paul and John’s letters.

This poem is about the grace of justification that we encounter at the cross. It attempts to capture what Luther called the “wonderful exchange” of our sin for Christ’s righteousness.
This video is a poem about the glory of God revealed in the cross. It gets at the mystery of God’s revelation of himself in the most unlikely of places.
