Our hearts quicken at the stories: thousands baptized in a far away land, missionaries preaching Christ at the peril of their lives, people choosing the Gospel over all else, that elusive peace finally experienced. We eagerly listen, we smile, and then we cherish that deceptively convenient thought: but that would never happen here.
Jesus, our Example in all things, didn't buy this. All the miracles, the preaching, the conversations, the conversions and, yes, His disappointments and blood-stained path all took place within 200 miles of His first breath. Jesus knew His work.
Do we know ours? "...he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father," Jesus said.
The ends of the world aren't the only places that need Jesus. Home does, too.
