Disciple Spectacles

If anyone would come after,
needed are disciple spectacles
     to see Jesus as Lord.

One lens is denial of self,
giving away all control to Him,
and discerning the difference
between beckons of the Spirit
     and our flesh.

The other is carrying a cross,
committing to live for, and, if need be,
     dying too.

Beyond merely confessing,
believing in one's heart
     it is truly so,
and later following Him step by step,
it must be crystal
     Whom we alone owe allegiance.
It is the only map needed
     for our long journey home.
