A tangible marker

There are times when a stake needs to be driven into the ground to establish a fact, to make a statement. It becomes a tangible marker that clarifies an issue—that ends discussion. It makes the verbal visible. It is something we can point to and come back to.

When the Maker of the planet
purposed to confirm to us
the reality of His unrelenting love,
He was kind enough to place
the matter beyond dispute.

An enormous wooden stake was hammered into the soil. It was driven home so forcefully that the whole universe felt the impact. He made His point painfully clear. It left no room for doubt.

And it had the unmistakable resemblance to a Roman cross.
