Coke or Pepsi? What is the Choice on the Street?
I bet these folks wish that is all they had to worry about or decide on was whether they liked Coke or Pepsi better. This picture was taken on the streets of the Bronx during Care-A-Van’s recent visit to New York City. The people above were waiting to have a hot cooked meal at the Love Gospel Assembly.
Tonight on the streets of Batavia was no different. On our outing tonight we saw a lot of hurting souls that had many difficulties going on in their lives. They climbed on board and the only thing they were looking for just as these people in the picture was hope. Bridget had cooked up a delicious pot of goulash for everyone to share. Paul had the coffee brewing and Elder Ron was busy taking care of the tables outside.
The team got to visit with people and share of the hope that there is for their lives. A lovely lady invited us into her home at the end of the evening and we saw the most awesome collection of coca cola items. As the bus was about to leave, another gentleman who has been struggling knocked on the door of the bus. He came in sat down and shared with from his heart with such emotion of his struggles. He knows of the freedom that comes with having the Lord in his heart, but he as the rest of us is human and was struggling.
You know Jesus doesn’t ask us what do you want- Coke or Pepsi? No, he asks what do you want- life or death? Yes we have a choice. We can choose life- which comes with freedom or we can choose death- which is the continuation of making wrong choices, living in sin and being caught up in the confusion of the world. I don’t know about you, but I choose life. Oh and just so you know as a sidebar- give me a diet Pepsi any day!
Have a blessed day! We look forward to seeing you all as we travel around the city bringing hope to the lost and hurting.
PS.. Hey Howard that might be a good poll for you.. coke or pepsi?
