“”And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15
A friend and I talked a good while today about the needs of homeless people. I have a huge heart for the homeless, but I also have a huge heart for all people. I told her plenty of non-profit organizations and churches and ministries provide practical material items for the homeless like food, clothing, job training, counseling, shelter, medical care, hygiene kits, etc. But the most important thing which is so often lacking is the sharing of the Gospel message and help in finding and forever following the Lord Jesus Christ.
A few hours later, the thought came to me how easily so many of us seem to think of certain groups of people like the homeless when it comes to loving, giving, providing, and serving. But friend, this world is FILLED with people in need. In need of material provision, yes. But most importantly in need of the Lord Jesus Christ.
WE ALL NEED JESUS. And those of us who follow Him need to tell the whole world about Him and not limit ourselves to those most obviously in need. The rich also need Jesus. Doctors, nurses, janitors, homeless shelter staff, prisoners, famous people, friends, family, teachers, students, foreigners, tourists, locals, waitresses, dog trainers, big people, little people, sick people, healthy people, and on and on it goes. THIS WORLD NEEDS JESUS, so please let us get busy telling the world about Him!
