If Jesus were here today:
A lot us would not like Him very much. He wouldn't run and hide from sinners. No, the most Holy God would actually seek out their company. A lot of would frown on that. He wouldn't look down on them and tell them how nasty they are. Actually, He would lift them up, and tell them how much He loves them. That would really get our goat.
He wouldn't condemn sinners and tell them that they are fit for hell. In reality, He would laugh and even joke with them. We would castigate Him for it. He wouldn't tell them how much He isn't like them. Rather, He would show them how to be just like Him, and how to help others to do so. We would be hopping mad by then.
You see if, Jesus were here on earth right now, He would be and do everything we think He would not. Actually, we probably wouldn't recognize Him. We'd be just as mad with Him, as we get with each other... for doing the things only He would do.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, if Jesus were here, He would be a friend of sinners, an attorney for the criminals, and a bosom buddy for the outcasts.
The truth is, when Jesus came to live in us, He did the very same thing to us. I wonder why we didn't get mad at Him then...
