I know you have heard or may have even used this expression “give the shirt off your back.” I have heard it said many times but I had never known anyone to take off their shirt and give their shirt to anyone else. Recently I was reading and I read where this man did such a thing. He was in a Laundromat waiting for his clothes to dry when a homeless man came in shirtless; the manager told him he would have to leave. I guess there was a sign saying no shirts, no shoes, no Laundromat. Anyways this man took off his shirt and gaveit to the homeless guy and then headed out to his car where his wife was waiting.
She couldn’t believe her eyes and asked him what in the world was he doing shirtless? He told her that he had just given his away to a homeless guy and needed a clean shirt. Has anyone ever taken off their shirt and offered it to you? You probably said no, but wait just a minute they have; you say theyhave? Sure His name was Jesus.
Matthew27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, castinglots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. Jesusgave His shirt off His back so you and I could have eternal life. Yes, we doknow someone who took their shirt off their back for you and His name is Jesus.Don’t forget to be in Church this Sunday He’s not asking for your shirt He just wants to have a relationship with you.
