Jesus In Disguise

‘For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’ Matthew 25:42-43

Sometimes we just want to blend in. Not to be recognized, to stand out, to have any attention drawn to us.

Have you ever thought about wearing a disguise? A costume of sorts. Like celebrities do so they can go out into public without being devoured by fans.

Oftentimes things aren’t as they seem. They are disguised. Covered up.

Where did you see Jesus today? He revealed Himself to you. 

In the person we chose not to make eye contact with. In the person who needed a hand up. In the person who sat with nothing to eat while everyone else was having lunch.

Did you see Him or were you blinded by His disguise?

There is great analogy in Brandon Heath’s story of how “Jesus in Disguise” was written.
