Matthew 25:38-40 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Jesus is Waiting
The Savior is waiting to enter your heart
Why don’t you let Him come in
There’s nothing I this world to keep you a[art
What is your answer to Him? Ralph Carmichael 1958
When we sang that song as young people, it as thrilling to imagine that Jesus truly and individually cared for each of us; and the good news is that He did and does! The sad news is that our thoughts and concerns sort of fizzled out once we felt that He had come in. Today Jesus is still waiting, He is waiting for us to follow Him in serving the needs of the helpless and making others the center of our attention. I was saddened this week as I was told by a family member of one of the residents in the Alzheimer’s unit where I visit, “Some of the resident’s families only call to find out if they have died yet.” But Jesus has not forgotten. Jesus spends time in some of the most unlikely places of the world. He is there, sitting by the side of the hurting, the lonely and the forgotten.
If you went to meet Jesus at the Nursing Home instead of at church, how many times would He see you this year?
