Jesus is Waiting

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. P1010716

If you went to meet Jesus at the Nursing Home instead of at church, how many times would He see you this year?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
