Emptiness and Fullness

Emptiness and fullness
First seen as opposites
But in the life of Spirit
We see that they are not

When within the Spirit
Fulfillment we do find
Of desires deep
Be empty for divine

Our cups we must empty
Of our lives complete
To receive the fullness
Of our God we meet

On cross, our Lord lived it
Both became the same
When given all to Father
“It is fulfilled”, he claimed

Listen to the question
Which Jesus asks us think
Can you drink the cup
That I’m going to drink?
