First exposed in the early chapters of Genesis, we see the nakedness of man. Part of the embarrassment of being naked certainly comes from our early childhood as we came naked into the world. That nakedness for all little children is represented by a complete vulnerability to the world and the elements. In short, we are a captive to the world and completely at its mercy without shelter or defense.
Mark 14:51–52 says,
And a young man followed [Jesus], with nothing but a linen cloth about his body. And they seized him, but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked
He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!”
Just as we see in the New Testament, Jesus ran across some with severe vulnerabilities. He ministered to them all.
For those of you who live in a large metropolitan city such as I do, can find and minister to those who are clustered in what is now more or less vacant downtown areas.
We’ll run across the crack heads, alcoholics, wine-os, homeless, those who are naked, those who are destitute, those who are without and who have forfeited hope. In short, we are going to meet the King of the World: JESUS
God, help me. Look what I have proclaimed above. I’m saying that running into all of these crazy despicable people, we are going to meet the Lord of Lords, Our master and Savior, Jesus.
And I’ll also say that whosoever dares to say they are calling upon His name will find satisfaction and the answers through these people who are walking Jesus’s.
And how do I know this: I know this because Jesus told us that whenever we came upon the least of these, it was Him.
There are no hymnals out on the streets unless we bring them. There is no organ music there unless we bring them. I’ll attest to the truth that also, there is no LOVE out there either, unless WE bring it.
And without you announcing the proclamation too, there is no Jesus for the world will not meet Him either in them or in you. For it is in that moment of spiritual nakedness, that we are as children then we come into the Glory of God’s Kingdom through His Son, Jesus the Christ. It begins with out spiritual nakedness as small children
