Great Glue

Believers in Jesus are vessels,
once so fragile, and since, broken,
in many pieces, shattered, but filled
with a great glue that holds all the pieces
behold, making shapes beautiful, anew,
otherwise, left scattered upon the floor,
destined only for the pan and broom
     and into the waste so cast.

What is this glue so great, you ask?

The glue is a Who, my broken friends,
more than a treasure, or a gift of grace,
He is the loving, living life of Jesus Christ,
living in our bodies, entirely, filling, holding
     together every slivered space.

2 Corinthians 13:5b - "Know ye not your own
selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you."
