Who's Looking For You?

Jesus never sought out Nicodemus. Nicodemus went looking for him.
 
When King Belshazzar couldn't understand the meaning of the handwriting on the wall, he was told of the history of a man of God named Daniel. He sent for Daniel.
 
When Pharaoh couldn't understand the meaning of his dream, he heard of a young man who could. He sent for Joseph.
 
Government leaders aren't sending for God's people and leaders today. Unless those leaders, unlike Jesus, Daniel Joseph and countless others tell them what they want to hear and not what the Word says without political spin.
 
Why would the blind send for those who many themselves have become blinded by politics, power and money and have made known their loyalty to one political party or the other?
 
Where are the men and women of God who will stand flat-footed in the face of leaders today, whether they be Democratic or Republican and tell them what thus says the Lord in love and truth without hint or scent of party politics?
 
As representatives of the Kingdom, we must be willing to let go of everything we are to become what God sent us here to be and sent us through trials and tests to become - Witnesses. Ambassadors. Word lovers - Word teachers and speakers who ourselves understand we represent a Kingdom not made by Republicans or Democrats. And to love people and leaders enough to tell them truth.
 
Jesus taught that the blind can't lead the blind lest they both fall into the ditch.
 
The blind is leading the blind in America today and the ditch is getting deeper.
 
It's why Jesus told us to be salt and light. Salt adds flavor and also makes thirsty. Nicodemus, Pharoah, King Belshazzar had a thirst that only men of God could quench.
 
They were in the dark and only the people of God could bring light.
 
"Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?" - Jesus (Luke 6:39)
 
"Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is fit neither for the soil nor for the manure pile; it is thrown out. Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear." - Jesus
