I’ve Never Been Enslaved

“I am a son of Abraham;
I’ve never been enslaved!
So who does Jesus think I am?
He said I must be saved!”

“I know I have a couple quirks,
But I still keep the law.
Between my bloodline and my works
I must be good with God.”


But Jesus still with sinners pleads:
“You are in desperate need!
But if you let me set you free,
You will be free indeed.”

-Wills Osborn (3/2022)


This poem is based on the text of John 8:30-47.
