This Bum Lamb

The Lost Lamb by N.C. Wyeth

 

A poem inspired by Pastor Jeff Hamling, preaching from Matthew 22:41-46:

For “The Lamb” to seek out this lamb.

This lamb lost.

This lamb hungry, lonely.

This bum lamb.

Lost, hopelessly lost,

Racked with gnawing hunger,

Tormented with the intensity of aloneness.

Empty.

Devoid.

To me He appeared.

His searchings driven by love.

The Lamb given for this lamb.
