I would like to introduce you to Jesus, but out here on the dusty Galilean trails, he is mobbed by poor, needy, lowly people everywhere he goes (Mark 3:7-10). There are so many poor, needy, lowly people gathered around him that it can be difficult to get close enough to him to touch his shirt (Mark 5:24-31), much less shake his hand. Even catching him when he sits down to eat is difficult since the place is so full of poor, needy, lowly people (Mark 3:20; 6:31).
But wait… I know…
Come meet him where I go to church! There ain’t none of those pesky, poor, needy people there! You are sure to find him there!
Yeah! That’s it! Come to church! You are sure to meet him THERE.
