Bringing Back God: If you met Jesus today.....
What if he is here, right now, checking things out? And you happened to come across him in the course of a day....would you know Him? He could be the guy on the side of the road looking for a ride, the woman who has no food, rooting through a trash can, he could be the Harley rider with tattoos covering his arms like a sleeve, could he be the Middle Eastern guy standing in line at Walmart....what would you do? Would you just walk or drive on by? Would you try not to look at Him, not knowing who He was? What should you do? You won't know who He is if he is here today, no one would. Jesus taught us to love thy neighbor, He taught us to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.....would you want someone to just walk by and ignore you as you root through the trash for a bite to eat? Can you imagine standing on the side of the road in the heat waiting for a ride for two hours because you have no other means to get from here to there? Would you want someone to judge you because you have tattoos on your body? Do you want someone to just smile at you and make eye contact because you are the only Middle Eastern person among a whole community of Caucasians? Jesus would want you to reach out to each and every one of those people, and it doesn't matter if they are Jesus or not....as Christians, we are to treat everyone as if they are Jesus. And we don't. What a pitiful country we have become.
What can we do? PASTOR JOHN COLLINS, MARIETTA PA and BRISTOL TN, at BRINGING BACK GOD preaches salvation. We need to seek salvation from the cross...ask for forgiveness for the treatment of our fellow man, seek repentance, be baptized in water, and take care of your fellow man. You don't know when Jesus is coming, and you don't know if you are actually standing beside him in the grocery store. Treat Him, and your neighbor, as you should. With respect and caring. Give Him the love that He gave us as the ultimate sacrifice so that we have eternal life.
