I Saw Jesus
These days I’m seeing Jesus everywhere! More and more people are reading God’s Word daily and doing what it says. It is exciting times to be at our church with so many of you giving your lives to following Jesus. It is hard for me to contain my enthusiasm when I see the Frazer Family at work in God’s world! I saw Jesus last week in worship. I saw Jesus last week in a prayer group. I saw Jesus last week in our countless volunteers. I saw Jesus in our selfless staff. I saw Jesus in my wife and in my children. In fact my two small children said to me just the other night, “You know daddy, Jesus is everywhere!”
The writing below illustrates best what I pray each of you see in your world this week.
I SAW JESUS
I saw Jesus last week. He was wearing blue jeans and an old shirt. He was up at the church building. He was alone and working hard. For just a minute, He looked a little like one of our members. But it was Jesus, I could tell by His smile.
I saw Jesus last Sunday. He was teaching a Bible class. He didn’t talk real loud or use long words. But you could tell He believed what He said. For just a minute, He looked like my Sunday School teacher. But it was Jesus, I could tell by His loving voice.
I saw Jesus the other day. He was at the hospital visiting a friend who was sick. They prayed together quietly. For just a minute, He looked like my pastor. But it was Jesus, I could tell by the tears in His eyes.
I saw Jesus yesterday. He was bringing a covered dish over to me because I had been sick. For just a minute, I thought it was Him, with His gentle hands stroking my shoulder. I thought it was Him, but it looked like my sweet neighbor. But it was Jesus, because I could feel Him in my soul.
I saw Jesus this morning. He was in my kitchen making my breakfast and fixing me a special lunch. For just a minute, He looked like my Mom. But it was Jesus; I could feel the love from His heart.
I see Jesus everywhere, taking food to the sick, being friendly to a newcomer. And for just a minute, I think He’s someone I know. But it’s always Jesus, I can tell by the way He serves.
May someone see Jesus in me today.
