A Poem by John Piper

Desiring God originally posted this video poem on January 22, 2013. May it serve to challenge and encourage us today. Here is the prelude to the poem:

God is the ultimate actor in life and in death and after death. And we are created to join him in acting on behalf of the children. “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works” (Ephesians 2:10).

We were made to rescue the perishing—the guilty perishing from hell, and the innocent perishing from murder. The earliest known Christian document outside the New Testament said, “Thou shalt not murder a child by abortion nor kill that which is begotten” (Didache, 2.2).Now is the time to venture something new. Will you dream with me? Let the poem make your heart soar with The Children to where vision is born.
