This is Jason. I met him just outside the West End proper. He was sitting on a bus stop bench with nowhere to go. Jason will perish without God's mercy and grace on his soul. There are many like Jason in this area, just hanging out, doing nothing, waiting for tomorrow to bring another day. He has no job, and nothing to do is not what our Lord wants of anyone.
"...and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you..." See, this is just one verse of many concerning work. Jason needs Christ first and His righteousness. Jason needs to have the miricle of sight and hearing to understand the Word of God. Without the Holy Spirit's working in the heart of Jason, he will perish. I pray that like me, God will cause Jason to hear again, and see again and do mighty works in the Lord.
"...who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father..."
