Only the press was allowed to go into that room, since no one stopped me or asked to see any ID, I walked in and stood right in front of two very famous people, John Glenn and Robert Kennedy. President Nixon came to town with his wife, both daughters and David Eisenhower, as they were entering the Hyatt Regency Hotel, I walked up to the door they were entering and shook the hand of each of them as they walked by. Similar stories with President Johnson and Lynda Byrd, Liz Taylor, Ava Gabor, President John Kennedy, Hubert H. Humphrey and the list goes on.
Why was I so determined to be close to them, because they were famous! I didn’t care which side of the political aisle they sat on, just that they were famous. They couldn’t do anything for me; I just wanted to be able to say that I had met them, up close and personal!
Imagine how the woman with the issue of blood felt as she pressed through the crowd of people only wanting to touch the hem of Jesus garment, knowing that if she could, she would be healed! How can I make you want to meet my Jesus? When you are trying to tempt a little child to eat something it doesn’t want, what do you do? Make it look so good that they want some of what you have! So tell people how good and wonderful He is, show them His kindness, and act like Him. What makes people think they can throw curse words around and make anyone want or desire the “Jesus” they are advertising? The WORLD curses you, why do I need to go to a “Christian” for more of the same? To lead people to Jesus, you have to show the love that He showed to sinners. When He spoke to the woman at the well He offered her living water. Yes, He told her about herself but He didn’t use a curse word to do it. She was impressed, He was kind, she had been treated harshly before, she ran into town to get others to come and hear what He had to say. He healed the blind, leper, lame, and had so much compassion that when the woman with the issue of blood touched His clothing, she was healed and He felt the virtue go out to her. He offered us a light yoke, and easy burden; we need only to call on His name to be saved. There is a balm (salve) to heal your sin-sick and wounded soul. No matter what your station in life, if you had five husbands and the one you are living with now is not your husband (this is just a way of saying whatever you throw at Him) He loves you and will come into your home.
Revelation 3:21-21 ” Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you hear me call and open the door, I’ll come right in and sit down to supper with you. Conquerors will sit alongside me at the head table, just as I, having conquered, took the place of honor at the side of my Father. That’s my gift to the conquerors!
Matthew 11:29 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
If you are trying to evangelize the world then this is the Jesus you need to offer by being the living example of love and compassion, entreat kindly, with love and you will have the success you desire in leading souls to Jesus!
I have introduced you to my friend Jesus, now you introduce Him to someone else!
