Stranger Still

Two strangers are at a hospital. The man sits at a piano and begins to play. The woman sits next to him and joins him in song.  This spontaneous, unrehearsed duet - caught on video by the man's wife - has since gone viral and been picked by national news as they share clips of this "inspiring" moment.

The thing about the news clips is that what they all seem to universally omit are the references to Jesus Christ.  By looking at the news, you would think these two are just singing about love.  The videos are abruptly cut short or muted after that.  Yet listen to the whole video, and you will see that these two are singing about the life changing, redeeming, supernatural, agape love of Jesus Christ which brings deliverance and healing.

The irony is that as two strangers come together to sing about the love of Jesus Christ - which each and every person needs - the world continues to try and ensure He remains a stranger.

The world loves to lavish praise on acts of "love" devoid from the One who is love, Jesus Christ. Don't become one of those people who espouse the goodness of others based upon the supposed merits of their own humanity.  What the world needs now is Jesus, and we must never forget it.

I know nothing of these 2 individuals personally, but I post this so that we remain ever mindful of the spiritual war we face.  It is real.

"Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring." Acts 17:22-28

May by our lives and our testimony, Jesus be no more a stranger to those who are lost and ensnared by the god of this world.

  1. True love is selfless. We can't be selfless without Jesus. That's the part people don't want to hear.

  2. Indeed they that worship God, must worship in spirit and in truth. We must realised that Calvary love is the ultimate escape to eternal damnation. Two things are involve God is inescapable either man embrace His love or face His judgment on the last day, when we all shall stand before Him to give account of our life. Indeed we are strangers in this life, pilgrims for eternity either heaven or hell! overcomers88.blogspot.com
