At the Airport
by Berni Dymet 

II Cor. 5:15 And he died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them.

I was sitting in one of the world's busiest airports the other day, watching people rush past.  Big, small.  Young, old.  Black, white.  All shapes and sizes and ages and backgrounds and beliefs.  The whole gamut of humanity seemed to be passing me by.

As I sat there, I just felt Jesus whisper something into my heart.  He just whispered…."I died for each one.  Tell them.  I died for each one of them."

I wonder whether it isn't easier for us to accept that Jesus died for someone else.  Someone who's better than us.  Someone who deserves it.  Someone over there who knows the right things and believes the right things and does the right things and says the right things.  But me - no, I can never accept that He died for me.  I can never accept that He's interested in me.  No - no, He just can't want to spend the rest of eternity……with me!

He died for each one of us.  Each one.  You.  Me.
