What if Jesus had turned His back on us because we were too risky, too messed up, too old, too hurt, too abused?

What if Jesus denied us because we might be a threat to His family?

What if we had told Chrissie no because our youngest wouldn't be 10-15 years older than her? (She would have died an orphan and Mark 14:18 wouldn't have been true for Chrissie. )

What if we had told Meribeth no because she was the same age as our Mattie?

What if we had told Naomi no because she was older than our other kiddos?

What if we had told Asher no because he was too risky?

What if we had told Kiefer no because we are still in our child-bearing years?

The Bible tells us to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Mark 14:18 says, "I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you."

Aren't you glad that Jesus didn't listen to man and be persuaded to reject and deny us?

I am still sickened over the advice of a godly man in the ministry. (see yesterday's post entitled Man vs. God if you don't know what I'm talking about!)

I am sitting on the side of the road tyoing this message as I could not go on about my day until I stopped to thank Jesus for His mercy, love, grace and redemption. I am not worthy, I am high risk, yet He chose my regardless. Thank you Jesus!
