I did not plan this picture; in fact, I had forgotten that Daniel, a local pastor, faithfully carries the Cross up and down the streets of our town on Good Friday. So, I was abruptly taken aback for an instant when he suddenly came into our view as we stopped at an intersection yesterday. I like the way the pic turned out. Can you think of a more symbolic icon of American culture than McDonalds? And notice the American flag.
I am reminded that Jesus walks among us - faithfully . . . oh, so faithfully. To those of us who have accepted Him as our Saviour, He says, "Stay close to me . . . listen to Me . . . trust Me . . . obey Me . . . share Me." And to those who do not yet know Him, He pleads, "Come unto me . . . I will give you rest . . . invite me in . . . repent . . . find life."
I can't think of a better time to draw closer to Him, the One who carried our sins all the way to Calvary!
