Don't Look Away But Feed Me

Something wonderful happen to me while we were a the bus depot this past week. A man who was semi drunk was asking for a cell phone and thought my wife was holding one - when she stated "Sir this is a electronic book reader (a kindle)", he then stormed off and become vocal in anger at her. He then yelled out for someone to call 911, and a man did. While waiting for 911, this man became even  meaner, yelling "HOW HE SERVED HIS COUNTRY, he kept going on and on about it. And my wife calmly says in a firm but gently tone "HOW HAVE YOU SERVED GOD?" - my mouth dropped to the ground and I just stood there in shock. The man just looked at her, and then hung his head down and stayed silent. When the EMT's came he turned down from the rescue agency. The men looked at my wife and nodded her to step aside to talk to her. I swear my wife always seems to be the responsible looking one or just gives that off. I was ashamed at myself because I was irked and annoyed at this man for him making my wife upset, the thing was, the spirit spoke through my wife and she did not see a sick man but an empty man. I don't know if she reached out to him but never stop trying is the lesson I learned that day.
 
Then I seen this on facebook today and it just confirmed everything I experienced at that bus stop. Don't deny it, we all have been criminals of this, even my wife, but her heart opened up and I soon to follow her lead.

Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured below) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service....only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food....NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit n the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.

As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation........"We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek"....The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation.....The homeless man sitting in the back stood up.....and started walking down the aisle.....the clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him....he walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment....then he recited

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 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, 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.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“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.’

After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning...many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame.... he then said....Today I see a gathering of people......not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples...when will YOU decide to become disciples? He then dismissed service until next week.......Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It's something you live by and share with others.
