IF THE MESSIAH CAME TO YOUR HOUSE


If the MESSIAH came to your house to spend a day or two, if HE came unexpectedly, I wonder what you'd do.

Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room to such an honored guest, and all of 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 say HIM coming, would you meet HIM at the door, with arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?

Or would you have to change your clothes before you let HIM in?

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

Would you turn off the radio and hope that He hadn't heard, and wish you hadn't uttered that last, loud, hasty word?

Would you hide some of your worldly music and put some hymn books out?

Could you let the MESSIAH walk right in, or would you rush about?

And I wonder, if the SAVIOUR spent a day or two with you,

Would you go right on saying the things that you always say?

Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would your family conversation keep its usual pace?

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

Would you sing the songs you always since, and read the books you read, and let HIM know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?

Would you take the MESSIAH with you everywhere you'd planned to go or would you maybe change your plans for just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have HIM meet your closest friends or would you hope that 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 last was gone?

It might be interesting to know the things that you would do.

If the MESSIAH in person came to spend some time with you.
