Back in the day (well, 2,000 years or so) Jesus was popular. He couldn’t go anywhere without being recognized. Everyone wanted something from him. And he was generally eager to give.
When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored the boat. 54 When they got out of the boat, people at once recognized him, 55 and rushed about that whole region and began to bring the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he went, into villages or cities or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed. Mark 6:53-56
Today, we are Jesus’ hands and feet. We get to go out and be Jesus to our friends and neighbors. We get to bring Jesus’ healing touch to strangers and enemy alike.
How are we doing? Is Jesus still popular?
We’d love to see you tomorrow morning, 10:00 am MDT, for worship. We’ll be at our partner Confluence Ministries, 1400 N. Quitman St, Denver. If you can’t make it, please pull up the stream and we’ll be together in the Spirit.
Grace be with you,
