Advent 2012 : Day 23

My Heart Is Now Become An Ark

In the past

God gave instruction to his people

to build an ark

out of acacia wood

covered with purest gold inside and out

and overshadowed by

gold cherubim.

Within the ark were placed those

treasured mementos

of God’s presence,

and so it served as promise

that in all the days ahead

God would meet with his people

at the ark.

My heart is now become an ark

of a renewed covenant.

Exodus 25:10-22

Exodus 37:1-9

Luke 2:8-20
