The Reachable Jesus

The Reachable Jesus

He remembered us when we were in trouble. His love continues
forever. PSALM 136:23

God chose to reveal himself through a human body. The tongue that called forth the dead was a human one. The hand that touched the leper had dirt under its nails. The feet upon which the woman wept were calloused and dusty. And his tears…oh, don’t miss the tears… they came from a heart as broken as yours or mine ever has been.

So, people came to him. My, how they came to him! They came at night, they touched him as he walked down the street; they followed him around the sea; they invited him into their homes and placed their children at his feet.

Why? Because he refused to be a statue in cathedral or a priest in an elevated pulpit. He chose instead to be a touchable, approachable, reachable Jesus.
