Jesus Is...(from Transformed Conference)

I won't start writing about the Transformed Conference, because it's late and I'm exhausted. I'll save that for tomorrow-ish. But I want to share a poem that Emeal "EZ" Zwayne presented at the conference, that really meant a lot to me. He didn't mention the author, so I'm sorry that I cannot give proper credit. In context, EZ presented this as he talked about Jesus' claim in scripture to be the Alpha and the Omega (or in English, the A and the Z). EZ emphatically pointed out that He's everything in between, too, saying:

Jesus is...
To the artist, He is the altogether lovely one.
To the builder, He is the chief cornerstone.
To the chef, He is the bread of life.
To the doctor, He is the great physician.
To the educator, He is the master teacher.
To the florist, He is the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valley.
To the geologist, He is the rock of ages.
To the horticulturist, He is the true vine.
To the intellectual,, He is the wisdom of God.
To the jeweler, He is the head of the church, which is the pearl of great price.
To the king, He is the prince of peace.
To the lawyer, He is the judge of all the earth.
To the manufacturer, He is the creator of all things.
To the newsman, He is the glad tidings of great joy.
To the occultist in search of the light, He's the light of the world.
To the philanthropist, He's the gift of God.
To the queen, He's the king of kings.
To the rabbi, He's the messiah.
To the scholar, He is the truth.
To the theologian, He is the author and finisher of our faith.
To the undertaker, He is the resurrection and the life.
To the visionary, He is the revelation of God.
To the waiter, He came not to be served but to serve.
To the x-ray technician, He is the Word of God, to whom all things are naked and bare.
To the youth, He is the life.
And to the zealot, He is the Son of God, for whom life is worth living.
