Lois K. Blanchard pictures Christ as still walking the streets today. She asks these pointed questions:

If Jesus came to your home to spend a day or two--

If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what you’d do?

I know you’d give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,

And all the food you’d serve to Him would be the very best.

And you would keep assuring Him you’re glad to have Him there

That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.

But when you saw Him standing there, could you go to the door,

With arms outstretched to welcome Him, your Heavenly Visitor?

Or would you have to change some things before you let Him in?

Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they’d been?

Would family conversation be continued at its pace?

And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?

Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?

Or would you hope they’d stay away until His visit ends?

Would you be glad to have Him stay forever, on and on?

Or would you sigh with great relief when He at least was gone?

It might cause some embarrassment the things that you would do,

If Jesus came to your own house to spend some time with you.
