Embrace the Death

Christians who refuse
To look squarely into the suffering of Christ
Are not Christians at all.
They are a breed of pretenders,
Who would turn their backs on the Cross,
And shame his death.
You cannot hold up the Cross,
Not drink of the cup
Without embracing the death.
And you cannot understand love,
Unless you first die.

From When Heaven Weeps
