The footfall of faith (1 Corinthians 10.23-11.1)

To live
for the glory of God,
to know the freedom
of surfing the Spirit,
of welcoming wonder,
of embracing the day

is not just to top up
my own well of worship
and throw thanks like confetti
around God’s heart.

It is to know the part
that love plays,
the beginning and end
of law,
the reason for freedom,
the source and song
of the Spirit.

Love is the footfall
of faith
that informs my choices
around others’ sensibilities
of conscience
while preserving
the inner freedom
of my heart.
