TITLE: Jesus with Skin on

Most of the time
talking to Jesus is the best thing
but then there are those times
when you really need someone real
someone who will physically respond,
a Jesus with skin on

We all know people
who just seem different,
you may be that person
to someone else,
but we all know someone
who is obviously very close to Jesus,
so close that you can
hear, see, feel, smell
Jesus in them
coming from them,
a Jesus with skin on

I know someone like that,
although we have very limitted contact,
with him being on one side
of the country
and me being on the other,
we still manage to connect,
at least enough for me to tell
that he is
my Jesus with skin on

I can hear it in his voice
when we get the chance to call,
I can even read it
in the few emails I get,
he says what I need to hear
almost all the time,
Id have to say I love him
almost as much as my parents,
He could never replace them,
hes simply
my Jesus with skin on


(I dedicate this poem to Joshua Draa)

Jesus with skin on. What a great concept! I want to be that to someone. I've had people in my life like that. What a blessing they were. I say "were" because they're with Him now. Thanks for reminding us that as children of God we should be "Jeus with skin on" to others.

I loved the image invoked by Jesus with skin on. This is what christians are supposed to be like; Jesus with skin on.

It is so good when people touch your life in a way that they seem like 'Jesus with Skin on'. I would certainly like others to think of me that way. Very interesting poem.

We would all love to be that kind of person. How blessed you are. I think you for sharing and reminding us that we are to image our Savior.
