This Easter week we think often of God becoming man and living amongst us. His willingness to live amongst us and take onto Himself all the pain we should suffer means LIFE for us.
I just received an e-mail asking for prayer for a couple who live in an inner city area and are committed to serving the kids and their families in that community. Last night a fight broke out just outside their apartment. They could have stayed huddled in their apartment but they chose to go out and stand between the angry kids.
THEY KNOW THESE KIDS – THEY LOVE THESE KIDS – THEY ARE COMMITTED TO THESE KIDS – THEY AREN’T LEAVING
The anger was so great that finally the cops were called and all the kids scattered. No one was hurt last night.
This couple is Jesus with Skin On in this community. What would have happened if they hadn’t been there?
All the money in the universe poured into that community isn’t going to make a difference in who those kids grow up to be. What they need are adults who live amongst them to model for them that life can be lived without settling every disagreement with a mini-war.
This is what is needed across America to work with the Invisible Children of America. This is why KidTrek is looking for men and women with a desire to be Jesus With Skin On to live and serve in depressed communities. These “missionaries” will pour their lives into at-risk families – bringing the one true hope – the hope of Jesus.
