Shimmering In The Noon-Day Sun

by

Evangelist Manuel Scott, Jr.

I saw a cross today
Hanging from the neck of a saint
It was shimmering in the noon-day sun
Quite a sight when you consider the taint.

The taint?
Yes, the taint that that cross
And all crosses have
That misrepresent the truth
By making the cross a thing of prettiness
Instead
Of a reminder
Of what God had to do

For

Your sins and my sins and all sins
He sacrificed His Holy One
His blood, His guts, were spilled
Shimmering
In the noon-day sun.

“And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.” John 19:17-18
