An aha moment
that moment of startling discovery
when we think we know
who Jesus is.
It is awesome and reverent,
a moment we just want to revel in
But at that very moment of revelation
it all comes crashing down around our ears
and, thinking we've arrived,
we are sent crashing off
on a whole new journey.
A journey that upends everything
For Christ refuses to be pinned down
refuses any label we might stick on him.
It is his way to keep us journeying
to a new awareness
an unfathomed truth
a destination that is always
just a little further on,
a quest that keeps us restless
that brings shocking revelations
that upsets our complacency
and denies us any sense
of having arrived.
For this is the Messiah.
