Chosen Generation
 
Have you ever really stopped to think about the amazing work that Christ did on the cross? Or tried to place yourself in His shoes and imagine how you would have felt, what you would have done? In our human mind, it is hard for us to grasp the awesomeness of what Christ did for us. It is even harder for us to understand that His death, burial, and resurrection covered the multitude of our sins. Not many people would have been willing to sacrifice their lives for sinners, misfits, and seemingly undeserving people. But, HE did. He knew that humanity would need the ultimate sacrifice of a savior.

Yesterday, I came face to face with the ultimate love of Jesus Christ. I was given the choice to reject a child of God or expose to him the unchanging love of Jesus Christ. Simply attending a birthday party for my godson, I never realized the fulfillment that could come at the party’s close. As we were wrapping up the party, an older gentleman approached the picnic area obviously under the influence of some substance, most likely drugs. After a brief conversation with the gentleman and his attempt at a Michael Jackson dance routine, I felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to witness to this man. I asked him if he knew that Jesus loved him, and if he had ever accepted Jesus as his Savior.  I began to sing Jesus loves me this I know…and he became so calm.  As I was singing, some of the other men attending the party surrounded him and began to pray.  I will never forget the look on this man’s face, as if he understood that Jesus really did love him and could set him free. I immediately remembered the scripture Matthew 25:40 that states “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”


It is crucial in this time that believers of Jesus Christ begin to continuously share His love with the least of these. There are so many people struggling and in search of something greater. I remember how I felt when I realized all that Christ had done to cover my sins, and how much He truly loves me. So as the song says “this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” Someone needs to know today that Jesus loves them, I challenge you as well as myself to no longer be passive about the gospel of Jesus Christ. But, everywhere we go it should be our mission as people of God to tell men what Jesus did to cover their multitude of sins. 


Luke 15:7 “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
