They look so happy but his life’s been so hard…
He keeps his distance so they won’t… see… the… scars;
…God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
But does he know that Jesus also has scars,
and His love can reach him no matter how far.
Looking on with compassion, Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you… go and sin no more.”
Maybe today we’ll cross their paths unaware and they’ll stop and look at us… What will be there?
While we were still imprisoned by our sins, the Son of God came and joyfully endured the cross for our sake. We were all His enemies… there was nothing lovely found in any of us.
For who He really is… is all they really need to see.
Let them see our good works and then glorify our Father in Heaven. God is love! Even more than telling them… may we show them.
