Luke 20: Confrontation

“Why have this confidence?
With what authority?
How can you pardon sins?
Who do you claim to be?
How can you claim this true?
What narrow-minded hate!
Why listen then to you?
Or heed the words you say?
Why are you never swayed?
Nor care for our esteem?
Why are you ever staid?
Why your audacity?”

“Is this then your concern?
Then let me ask you this:
Why do you chose to spurn,
The truth to end resent?
When pressure then is high,
What is your guiding light?
What do you sacrifice?
What do you hold on tight?
For this reveals your god:
The idol in your mind,
And strips through your facade,
The main concern to find.
But you must give it all,
In sacrifice to Christ.
Through every pain recall:
God’s grace will all suffice.”
