Are we hearing the Word of God? Are we responding to the Word of God, that Word which tells us to open our eyes and see Jesus Christ in one another, to see Jesus Christ in those people who are always critical, to see Jesus Christ in those who think and live differently than we do? This is the challenge of the Word of Jesus Christ. This is the challenge of Jesus Christ. Why do you think it was so easy for Jesus to eat with sinners? Because he saw hope in them and in the world!
