Christ’s followers

So many sought to hear Christ
The one who healed
Every one who was ill wanted to see him
Ever desperate person wanted renewed

He spoke words difficult to hear
Several gave their whole lives
Realizing that without Christ they had nothing
Death seemed preferable to life without Christ

Hearing thousands left
It seemed every one left
one of the twelve sold Jesus for money
All but one ran away

Peter followed Jesus to the trial
Knowing that everything was over
His courage was overcome by his fear
He denied Christ instead of sharing the cross

When Jesus died, he died with strangers
His followers unwilling to fall with him
Yet, when he died, he was true to the Father’s will
Death itself was not enough to hold him

Christ followers came back, embracing a new promise
If you live and die with Him you will be raised up with him
