Promotion - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Promoted by The King of kings
To walk at Jesus’ side
Set apart for wondrous things
In service of His bride

Promoted to serve His chosen few
His house of living stone
Helping His children born anew
While mortal flesh and bone

Promoted by The Lord of Lords
A sinful life to change
Serving them all that God affords
Their lives to rearrange

Promoted not to play the lord
Who’d keep His people down
But righteously to wield the sword
On those who’d steal life’s crown

Promoted to serve and represent
The greatness of God’s love
And in the spirit gifts He sent
Prepare for life above

Promoted to serve the rich and poor
Each child who has a need
Help neighbours here and foreign shore
Their hungry souls to feed

Promoted to serve the living bread
The wine from Jesus’ hand
Healing the sick and walking dead
To rise at God’s command

Promoted to stand by Heaven’s grace
A blessing to the least
So others too may see God’s face
And join Him at The Feast
