Meditation 42 (First Series)

23 Sep

Though the verse seems more focused than this– that we will sit with Jesus in Heaven– Taylor writes a little drama into this, of a man who has turned his heart from God, and who must be redeemed by Jesus before he can enter Heaven. The figure here is Jesus as locksmith, opening hearts to find “Love.”

This drama is resolved by line 20 or so, and from there its more or less Jesus dressing up the redeemed soul. Here, the images shift to clothes, and also to living quarters– the final image, of paying “Rent in Happiness,” in interesting, but I’m not sure what to do with it.
