Jesus Replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head. Luke 9:58
Rich Mullins wrote a song some years ago that said, “And You did not have a home, there were places You visited frequently…but You did not have a home…birds have nests, foxes have dens, but the hope of the whole world rests on the shoulders of a homeless man.”
I’ve been thinking about the definition of a sojourner today and by my own description of myself (Sojourner is myÂ e-mail/screen name) I am only a temporary resident. I’m just passing through. Just like Jesus. He came to do a job, he never planned to stay. He came to go to the cross to show us the depth of the Father’s love. He was “homeless” by choice as He left His home in heaven to sojourn upon the earth. What an example He set!
