Jesus: Saviour Teacher

"She will bear a son and you are to name Him Jesus,
because He will save His people from their sins." Matt 1:2


Father,

I ask: who is Jesus?


He is my Saviour and Teacher.
He is who frees me from the prison of "I."
He is who draws the grieve from my grave
He is who lessons  a full-throated prayer.
He is who braces the coward in me.
He is who wipes the blur frommy journey.
He is  who feeds me the strength to love, and
He is who allows me the joy to be  loved.
He is who teaches the vanity of regrets.
He is who stirs my faith in life.
He is who inspires peace,not war.
He is who  eases my mountain's climb.
He is who leads me to dance, not crawl.
He is the Sail to cross the waters.
He is the Never-Silent-Song.
He is the Gnarled Oak, not axed.

Yes, He is "Amazing Grace." --
The Second Person of God's Inner Triangle,
Yet, also man.

The Man whose Blood-Wounds
Seeds my salvation;
The Man whose tongue
Seeds my "why;"
The Man who teaches us
That .God is Abba, Father.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
