But do we give God? Do we give Him Who is most necessary to us, Who loves us above the loves of all others? We are made in His image. We can. We can be the face, the hand, the voice, of Jesus Christ to our brother, our sister, needy or not – all cry out for Him in the dark watches of the nights that leach into our lives from every shadow ... sickness, loneliness, grief, death ...
Your money, your clothing, your checks, will never bring them solace ... they will only find it in the face of God ... and you alone can bring it.
Imagine ... you can!
The two words — Jesus Christ — are the most beautiful in the world! And you are ashamed to utter them ... to give God to the world...? Jesus spoke of those who are ashamed of Him in this world ... or perhaps you have forgotten?
whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words, of him will the
Son of Man be ashamed
