He Belongs In Our Streets!

Why are we so ashamed of Him? Why do we hesitate to bring Him with us occasionally on to the streets we walk each day? An unrepentant sinner's momentary glance at our passing Lord might be the personal encounter that person needs to spur him toward reconciliation and eternal salvation. Jesus is alive, really and substantially present among us! He is ready to change the lives of all who humble themselves, confess their sins and acknowledge Him as their Savior and Lord! Matthew the tax collector climbed a tree in order to get a better glimpse of Jesus as He passed him by. Matthew got much more than a look. He repented and the merciful loving Jesus made him a disciple, a martyr and a saint.

 A simple glance at our passing Lord can change so many lives. Why don't we believe this truth?

 If they can walk with Jesus through the streets of NYC, shouldn't we do likewise in our communities?
