John 12:20-36

The Greeks who came to worship
Wanted to see Jesus while in town
This confirmed his suspicion
That word had gotten around

The healings that He had performed
The authority when He spoke
The way He invited everyone
Even the unclean folk

He was subversively announcing
Revealing earthly power as undone
Telling everyone, “Repent, and hear
God’s Kingdom has come!”

A seed of New Creation
Which means He has to die
In order to be raised again
His followers wondered why

Which stirred His soul to trouble
He didn’t want to make
Them worry everything would end
Then the Father spoke, for their sake

“I will glorify my name.”
Something big was happening here
Whatever was going to happen next
They didn’t need to fear

It was all part of Gods larger plan
To bring about His Will
That everyone would know His Love
And with it, He would fill

The earth like oceans overflowed
So all would know His glory
It’s more than “Jesus in my heart”
It’s being swallowed by His story.

We don’t just follow His example
And try to live as He
We are born again, children of light
A New Identity.
