Don’t Miss Jesus

He is there around the corner of that dusty Inn
No cares for its appearance He walks right in
Even though the street is named for its certain “kind” of Hell
Peace and understanding walks into the empty shell
He lays His hands upon the open oozing wounds
And sets free the waylaid captive from inside their tombs.
Can you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus.

He’s sitting down along side the drunkard in the alley way
Sharing a sip of the drink His child consumes today
The stench of the forgotten does not reach His nose
He unchains the binds that drink His brother and stands in front of the stones it throws
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus

He’s there beside the pastor standing at the front
Of crowds of restless listeners
While the doors go thump
Orchestrating every word that proceeds from his mouth
Watching eyes be open and ears turn South
Waiting patient for His Father to enter in
Sending His holy prayer to forgive their sin
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus

He takes the hands of the doubter
While he walks away
And touches future moments
When his doubt will sway
Releasing Truth upon them
With a gentle hand
Do you see this Man?
Don’t miss Jesus

His arms surround a griever
Shaking fist of blame
To all of life and it’s Giver
While their hearts aflame
Pouring out His waters
Like a river wild
Washing, stroking, holding
This His precious Child
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus

He is standing in the midst of a few gangster boys
Listening to the rhythm on their empty toys
Rage against the wounds that beat and kill
He is the Still and Quiet riot in their midst
He writes their names with His blood upon a Page
Writing souls down on a moment not yet seen
He is the inbetween
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus

He’s there beside the lesbian
Who’s just been told her sin
Is greater than the liar
Who knows the truth within
He prays to His Father
Reminding Him that He now holds the Balances paid in full with Blood
He drank the cup and His hands became each scale
He cups her face and whispers
“That’s why they now have holes”
She looks up into His face -though right now she can’t see
He assures her spirit
“An appointed time will come I promise child you’re free”
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus

How can you love Him and miss Him?
How can you know Him and doubt Him? He now lives inside sinners.
He sits beside sinners. He holds the hands of sinners. He opens the eyes of sinners. He whispers His love to sinners. Past, present, future… sinners. He sits at the right Hand of the Father, who sent Him to and for sinners. He died for sinners, rose again for sinners. Now alive for sinners. He saves sinners. Because that’s all there is. .. For now. .. sinners.
Do you see Him?
Don’t miss Jesus
Don’t miss Yeshua
Don’t miss Salvation
Sins are not remembered
Forgiveness is
Forgiveness has a Name
Unforgotten and True
Don’t miss Him… His Name is Jesus!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

      So sorry it took so long to get back on this question. It slipped right passed me. Not “religiously” but in the heart. .. yes. 🙂 1 Corinthians 2:9-16

          Yes, if it isn’t there first and foremost the actions are relatively useless. 🙂 May His grace and peace be with you. ..
