I'm still singing along to Rock in my head all day long after last weekend on the Isle of Wight! It was wonderful - as always. I was inspired to write this poem after seeing 'just an ordinary man' take the part of Jesus.
Just an ordinary man
I saw Him standing there –
He was just an ordinary man,
Nothing to set Him apart from his friends –
Until He looked at me.
There was something different about him,
Was it the look in His eyes,
Full of love and compassion
As He looked and called me ‘My Child’.
But there was something else,
A sadness in His eyes
As if to say to me, ‘My Child,
I’m longing for you. Please come.’
And then it was that I realized
That this very ordinary man
Was no other than my Saviour –
Jesus – God’s son – come to earth as Man.
Looking forward to our next Roger Jones event on the Island in Holy Week.
