Have you ever watched people? I mean just sit somewhere and watch them. I do it a lot. Often at parties, at the mall, on my walks, or at restaurants, I will just sit and watch people. I watch their facial expressions, their mannerisms, their actions, and the way they interact with people. I watch people interact with their babies and children and of course I watch how people interact with teenagers.
Today I saw a guy zoom by me on his bike with a cigarette hanging from his lip and a scowl on his face. I watched a mother, at a stop light, play peek a boo through the rear view mirror with a toddler sitting in the back of the car. I saw men and women talking on their cell phones. I watch people react to me as I walked by them some people saying hello while others didn't make eye contact. I saw a man come up to a crosswalk and take the arm of an elderly woman who was trying to cross the road. I saw people eating lunch and driving.
I have watched thousands of people in my life and one question always comes to my mind while I watch them. I wonder to my self if they have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I wonder if they have accepted him into their lives and allowed him to fill them with love and understanding. I wonder if they pray and worship or if they miss out on those essential parts of life.
I don't have the answer to whether or not they do but I hope and pray they do. I pray they welcome him with open arms into their lives. If they only knew the power of having that relationship, they would know they can climb mountains and conquer valleys. I hope that you have a relationship with Jesus and if you don't I hope you will find out more about Jesus so that you can accept him into your life. It is an amazing feeling when you let him in!
