Earlier this week I pondered what if someone stood on a corner with signs saying "He Is Risen" and "Hallelujah!"
The signs were made, and I recruited some youth from my church to wave the signs. Not only did they wave the signs, they unashamedly shouted, "JESUS LOVES YOU!" "JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU!" "HE IS RISEN!" "HALLELUJAH!" "HONK FOR JESUS!"
Drivers honked their horns and waved. One guy driving a pick-up truck shouted and pumped his fist in agreement as he drove by. I know this guy. "THAT'S MY NEIGHBOR!"
A broken-down car chugs by. "GOD HAS A CAR FOR YOU!"
Someone drove by in an old, beat-up looking motorhome. "GOD HAS A HOME FOR YOU!"
A man riding a bicycle whizzes by. "GOD CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR PROBLEMS!"
"I'm telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you're not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God's kingdom. What's more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me." (Matthew 16:2-5, MSG)
I want to be more like these kids.
