Jesus in Skin , Loving Well

Have you ever read a statement and thought, "that's exactly how I feel, I wish I'd said that"? 

Well I came across one this week that just said what is on my heart so beautifully. Here it is:

"I want to be known as someone who... isn’t bent on saving the world but loving their neighbor well... who is content to be Jesus in skin to someone else.”   Caitlin Muir  

Think about that for a moment. When Jesus was on earth he was focused on the people who crossed his path each day. Yes, he was actually here to save the world, but he never lost sight of those who needed his love and touch in the moment. 

I fail so miserably at this. I become so wrapped up in projects and getting ready for the future that I miss what's right in front of me - those divine opportunities to minister that he gives me every day. 

Jesus in skin...what a great picture that is! 

If you struggle with this as I do please click on the link below to read Caitlin's blog post. It will bless and convict you.  

Also, please feel free to share with me how you stay focused on today and loving people around you well. I could use the help! 

Thanks for stopping by today. 

Following the plan,
