Where is the line to see Jesus?
I am mindful of just how far we are off base when it comes to being the kind of witness that will greatly affect the world that we live in, for I strongly believe that as the people of God we can not change the world that we live in by trying to change others, but we can have a great affect on the world through the change that is wrought in us.
Where is the line to see Jesus? No, it is not in our ability to foretell the future, nor is it our understanding of great mysteries, and all knowledge, No, it is not in our great faith, nor even in our giving to the poor that they shall see Jesus,
Where is the line to see Jesus? For though I have the faith to remove mountains and have not love I am nothing. And though I give all my goods to feed the poor and my body to be burned and have not love it profit me nothing.
Where is the line to see Jesus? It is where it has always been, and can still be seen and heard in the words of Jesus when he said, for by this shall all men know that you are my disciples, those who have truly learned of me, by the love that you have one for another.
I can still hear the words of the master as they roar mightily though out the pages of time saying, for you are the light of the world, a city that sits on a hill and is impossible to hide.
For the greatest sermon, the greatest ministry both now and always can be found and seen In a life that overflows with the love of Jesus.
This is where the line to see Jesus can be found, it can be found in the love that we have one for another. For it is the love that we have one for another that gives meaning to everything that we do, with out love we are no more than a loud noise that has no meaning,
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. (1 John 4:16-17 KJV)
Yes, this is where the line to see Jesus can be found
