The Way

He avoided the crown
More than the cross
He eschewed worldly acclaim
More than a friend’s denial

Suffering reveals grace
Elevation leads astray
Serving fills the heart
Self-indulgence erodes the soul

We decide to our detriment
We obey for the greater blessing
Our wisdom is foolishness
Jesus commands are true joy

The life we seek is not found
It is revealed
We cannot make our own way
We must follow The Way
