So tonight we just finished sharing food, blankets, supplies and the good news of Jesus' redemptive love to the homeless in New York city. For roughly 4 hours we canvassed the city that doesn't sleep, meeting in the places known to be frequented by the those without a home. We worked till past midnight in what was still a beehive of activity as we went back to our host facility for the night.
I think of 3 scriptures as I process the day.
Jesus didn't own a home.
Matthew 8:20 Jesus replied, Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.
If we serve the least, we are serving Jesus
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
40 The King will reply, Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
This world is not our home.
20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Thanks for sending us be His hands and feet,
