For the birds…
Winter weather is predicted for Farmville and I am out of bird seed.
But wait – Jesus told his disciples, “Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!” (Luke 12:24, English Standard Version). God’s got this. It’s in the Bible. I don’t need to feed the birds. Right?
For the people…
No matter what you believe about the eternal destination of people, all followers of Christ believe Jesus knows who will spend eternity with him in heaven. So if Christ already knows, why evangelize?
Are we are Christ’s Body?
In 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Paul writes that we are Christ’s body. We are his hands and feet.
Is it possible that Jesus is feeding the birds – and reaching those who will spend eternity with him in heaven – by using his body?
