Jesus in disguise…

“A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news health to the bones.” Proverbs 15:30

You have seen him or her. You know the person whose clothes are in dire need of a clean. Their face is equally dingy.  They stand on the corner of Main Street, USA.  Their eyes are downcast and hollow.  You know who I am talking about, right?

I challenge you today, because from my vantage point, I see this person almost daily as I leave my comfortable neighborhood to do my everyday things.  I see them, not as battered human beings…which they are; rather I see them as Jesus in disguise.  Do you past them?  Do you judge?  Do you figure they just need money for drugs or alcohol or something other than what you think they should use money for?  Do you act like God when you see them…judging?  I used to. He changed my heart…He always does.

We live in a time where people are poor.  Really poor.  Mostly poor of spirit, but of pocket too. We live in a country that is rapidly declining…we have lost God.  We have forgotten what we were created upon… fundamental Christian ideals.  LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR!

I am not saying you need to hand out a dollar bill to each one you see on the street…or pound the pavement with toiletries and Bibles…if you do, you are answering a great call.  I am challenging you to be kind. Smile. Wave. Say “How are you?”  “Jesus, loves you.”

When we get to Heaven, we will be held accountable for every action and word spoken.  When the good Lord asks “Did you take care of the least of these?” How will you answer? I pray that I can say with confidence and resounding “YES!”

Remember…Jesus is in disguise all around you.  Be willing to be His hands and feet and heart.  Make a difference in the face of one person today…it may heal their bones and change the course of their life.
Be blessed but most of all be a blessing!

Heavenly Father,
You are all around us. Help us to see Your needs here on earth.  Help us to care when we are dry and to love when we are hurting.  Help us to understand the difference between a hand-out and a helping hand.  In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
