Sir, We Would See Jesus

So how did the Greeks know Phillip could lead them to Jesus?

What set him apart from the festival crowd in Jerusalem on that Passover long ago?

For that matter, what sets you and me apart from the crowds of people “among whom we live, and work, and worship”?

Would a stranger at the Appleton Farmer’s Market or at the airport (or on the flight, for that matter?) be able to identify me as a Christian in the press of people and in the fog of their own concerns?

Perhaps more to the point, if they did pick me out, would they think I’d welcome the interruption?

What was it about Phillip that shone so clearly that the Greeks knew he’d welcome them and help them find Jesus?

God grant that we may shine so brightly and similarly radiate welcome.
