Choosing the Gauntlet by Raymond A. Foss

Enemies gathering in the city
stiff-necked people of God
unable to see
who stood in the land,
offering hope to all

Choosing the gauntlet, the trials,
going as the firepot, the torches,
between the branches waving
the sacrifice coming
fulfilling the prophecy
the covenant of God

More than a prophet
the shoot of Jesse,
the son of God
going to the Temple
to live out God’s plan

The lamb, the offering
choosing the road to Jerusalem
setting his face on his future
knowing the path he was walking
to the cross, to the skies
