Where's the line to see Jesus

There are lines to see Jesus!
Let me rephrase that.
There are lines to get the gifts Jesus offers.
When Jesus was on earth there were definitely lines to see Him. People wanted the healing and miracles! But they didn't want to follow Him all the way to the cross.
The rich young ruler is a classic example. He wanted to inherit eternal life. But he didn't want to leave his riches behind and follow Jesus. He didn't really want to see Jesus; he just wanted the gift of eternal life.
People are no different today. We want to get the many blessings that Christ offers, but we want to run our own life. We want to get to go to Heaven, but we don't want to know God on earth.
We don't really want to see Jesus.
Being a Christian is more than just getting eternal life. Being a Christian is following Christ. The life of a Christian is a life of sacrifice.
Being a follower of Jesus costs. But any cost will be repaid by far when we get to Heaven. Not following Jesus has a far greater cost.
I remember reading a story about a child who was always there when his father handed out the allowance. But he liked to disappear when it was time to do the work!
We like to think of Jesus as a Santa Claus giving out goodies.
As a result, there's a line to 'get the goodies.'
But where's the line to see Jesus?
