Who is He? Does Anyone Know?

It was a Sunday Morning Service. It was almost time to start. The young man quickly moved to his pew.  As he started to sit, an unfamiliar face approached. “Anyone sitting here with you?” the person asked. The young man told him that he wasn’t saving a place. “May I?” he asked the young man. “Certainly.” came the reply. They sat side by side. The young man was so engrossed in the service that he was only vaguely aware of the person sitting with him. When the service concluded, the older man asked if he could have a few minutes of the young man’s time to discuss some things. Apologizing, the young man explained that he couldn’t right now. He had to help count the offerings and help pick up in the sanctuary. The older man then mentioned some other days of the week, asking if any of those would be available in order for them to talk. Apologizing for being so busy, the younger man explained that on Monday, he was teaching a Bible Study. Tuesday, he had choir rehearsal. “Wednesday?” “Sorry, that’s Prayer meeting.” The young man added that Thursday and Friday, he was responsible to take the youth group on a trip. “What about Saturday,” the older man asked hopefully. Once again apologizing, the young man explained that Saturday was for evangelizing. Before leaving, the older man handed the young person a paper. Downcast, he slipped away. Glancing at the paper, the young man read: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). “There is a place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God, a place where sin cannot molest, near to the heart of God. There is a place of comfort sweet, near to the heart of God, a place where we our Savior meet, near to the heart of God. There is a place of full release, near to the heart of God,  a place where all is joy and peace, near to the heart of God.” (“Near to the Heart of God-Cleland Boyd McAfee). Jesus offers us His Presence! Selah! Let’s not be so busy “working for the Lord” that we don’t find time to be with Him!   Ron
