We are a Massive Army Camped on one Side of a River

Adapted from a Writing of
John Christopher
A Servant of the Poor in Melbourne, Australia

The homeless ... are far outnumbered by regular working Church attending Christian people.

Statistically a Homeless person’s friendship group should be made up of many Christian friends. If a Christian has no other Homeless friend other than Christ, who is in heaven, those homeless whom we can see and we do not serve - then there might be a problem with our Faith.

Of Course that is based on the PREMISE that all Christians believe they are to follow God's direct instructions through the Bible and from Jesus' own words to make time and develop a meaningful relationship with the lost, poor and homeless of the city they live in.

We are a massive army camped on one side of a river, year after year, while the village on the other side is constantly attacked and raided, the people maimed, abandoned and murdered. Occasionally some soldiers or small patrols head across the river and return with a message that more help is needed ...

Someone's reply: "I know the King has asked us to go across and fight, but I am busy with camp cooking, cleaning and besides, my sword is not yet sharp enough."

Yet another may reply: "I know the King is due back to the camp soon, when that happens he will lead us across the river and we shall crush the enemy under our heel.. how great and glorious that day will be!"

What might be your reply?
