Here’s my challenge to you today: Go ask a random person on the street, “If Jesus were here today, what would he be doing?” If you’re brave, you can come back and post the responses you get here on this blog.
Here’s my prediction: not one person will say that Jesus would be at church. I’m thinking more likely responses are hospices, nursing homes, prisons, HIV clinics, recovery homes, and so on.
The point of this little exercise is to see an outsider’s perspective on what Jesus would do. Whatever they say… that is what we should be doing. They know it and we know it.
