Charismata
(Greek: grace gifts)

We walk in the floodlight
ministry of the Spirit
who as matchmaker

points us to Christ's glory throne,
our charisma to be
his body on earth,

shining Christ forth
in grace gifts that recover
enemy territory;

holy hands laid upon
a rebelling world whose sideshows
twitch for hype

tongues speaking to God
of groans within creation, urgently
waiting for the day of adoption
