He?s Jesus!

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses. --HEBREWS 4:15

He was the kind of fellow you'd invite to watch the Rams-Giants game at your house. He'd wrestle on the floor with your kids, doze on your couch, and cook steaks on your grill. He'd laugh at your jokes and tell a few of His own. And when you spoke, He'd listen to you as if He had all the time in eternity.

And one thing's for sure, you'd invite Him back.

It is worth noting that those who knew Him best remembered Him not as Jesus Christ or Lord Jesus, but as Jesus. Think about the implications. When God chose to reveal Himself to mankind, what medium did He use? A book? No, that was secondary. A church? No. That was consequential. A moral code? No. To limit God's revelation to a cold list of dos and don'ts is as tragic as looking at a Colorado road map and saying that you've seen the Rockies.

When God chose to reveal Himself, He did so (surprise of surprises) through a human body. The tongue that called forth the dead was a human one. The hand that touched the leper had dirt under its nails. The feet upon which the woman wept were calloused and dusty. And his tears?oh, don't miss the tears?came from a heart as broken as yours or mine ever has been.

So people came to Him. My, how they came to Him! Why? Because He refused to be a statue in a cathedral or a priest in an elevated pulpit. He chose instead to be Jesus.

SPREAD THE WORD THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

The Jesus we serve in our lighthouses is not some religious icon or set of rules. He's Jesus, and if we show our neighbors who He really is, some will come to Him.
