Life in abundance

It seems to me
That abundant life
Is being offered
To parts of the church
That already have
So much
Too much
A Californian philosophy
For Middle England

I suspect
That life
In it’s fullness
Doesn’t entail
More of the same
More of the same
But a giving up
Of the status quo

Whoever loses his life
For His sake…
Greater love has no man
Than to give up his life…

The consequence
Of a more abundant life
Is less
Of yourself
Where death is gain
And living
Is Christ

Is that
The abundance
We’re buying into?
Or believe is on offer?
For all who are thirsty…
