The reasons why...

Mark 16:15 "And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

The reasons why I can't stop telling of His goodness, of His greatness, of His mercies, and the completeness that can be found in Him! I envisage a people, hungry and thirsty, for that which is absolutely free!
The knowledge of freedom eludes the majority....

Such as the man with the face of many lives...

On the bus he sat, face etched with deep weighty lines,
each indentation, filled with stories of past and
present life situations,
which he displays through arrays of expressions

The look of sadness, wistfulness, sometimes,
lightened by the occasional happy memory
His mind, deep in thought...
Sitting on the bus he was
I, hanging on to the rails, hoping not to fall off

I wondered; did he know there is someone
that can make everything all right, that his life
can be smoother than this bumpy bus ride?

Does he know of the one that gives the gift of free smiles?
Sitting on the bumpy bus ride he was,
I, wondering if he knew about the saviour, Jesus Christ
If, he knew that only He can bring light into those seemingly tired, sad eyes.
