If Jesus is a mighty river
Flowing to the sea of our Heavenly Father.
It will do us no good
To merely wade at the edge of the water.
Splashing around merrily,
Never venturing to a depth above the knee.
For playing at the river’s edge
Won’t take us to that majestic sea.
No, to reach the sea
Requires submission to the river’s current.
A current that flows
Towards the sea in a manner so fervent.
Yet, submitting to such a current
Requires travel by boat.
Thus, it is through the Holy Spirit,
That in the river we find the means to float.
