Sometimes it is hard to understand Jesus. He says, ‘Come inherit the kingdom prepared for you…for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink….’ Then in almost the same breath he says, ‘I was hungry and you gave me no food…a stranger and you did not welcome me.’ Either way the answer from the people that is recorded in scripture is – “Lord, when did we see YOU…..” The connection between particular needy persons and Jesus comes as a total surprise. Therefore, the possibility that it is Christ coming to us in ‘the stranger’s guise’ powerfully intensifies and broadens concerns about care and respect for those most likely to be overlooked.” (From Christine Pohl, Making Room, p. 67)
How do you see Jesus? When do you see Jesus? How do you know it is Jesus?
