Recognizing Christ


When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed. We have refused to be instruments of love in the hands of God to give the poor a piece of bread, to offer them a dress with which to ward off the cold. It has happened because we did not recognize Christ when, once more, He appeared under the guise of pain, identified with a man numb from the cold, dying of hunger, when He came in a lonely human being, in a lost child in search of a home.

SWAP-IT Update:              66,700 meals
GOAL:                         2,200,000 meals

Remember…the SWAP-IT project is providing meals for a LIFETIME!  Read about the SWAP-IT Project.

Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
Luke 9:23

ESV Study Bible note: “To take up the cross means to renounce selfish ambition.”

Renouncing selfish ambition is a DAILY ENDEAVOR.  I need to stand firm. Be resolute. Don’t waver.  Recognize Jesus in others DAILY.  Reminds me of a missionary friend of ours who lives in Mexico…he said, “Every day I wake up and I choose to be a missionary that day.”
