One and all!

Isn’t it awesome to see how and when God speaks to you? Wait, maybe He speaks to us all the time, it's just awesome when we humble ourselves enough that we submit and realize what he is saying. ANYWAY...I was reading Matthew 4 this morning and along about verse 23 where Jesus had just started his travels I read this. People brought anybody with an ailment, whether mental, emotional or physical. Jesus healed them, one and all. (The Message)

He healed them one and all! He didn’t ask, “how did you get this way” or “what are you doing for yourself.” NO! He cared for all of them.

Tonight I was able to share a room with an awesome group of people who are committing their Wednesday nights (and more) to serving “one and all.” You may never know what difference a can of food, a listening ear, a $10 bill or a hug will do for someone. Sometimes serving won’t be fun and it won’t be comfortable, but I’m thinking there was nothing fun and comfortable about nails and wooden cross.
