Some people are only interested in Jesus' function as a sin-sacrifice, but do not want a relationship with Him. They will be disappointed when Jesus says, "Depart from me, I never knew you."

In 2005, I had the opportunity to open the Indiana State Senate in prayer. As I prepared my prayer, I thought, "Most pastors view the senators as functionaries, not as human beings with families, stresses and needs. For most, it is about what they do, not who they are. So I decided to pray for their families and their personal lives, not just for wisdom in legislating. I view my doctor, dentist, and others as people, not mere functionaries. That is a simple way to show the love of Christ.
