Last Monday at Paige's funeral was sobering. Little Ella kissing her mommy goodbye was heart-wrenching but the proverbial Dragon [elephant] in the room were the numerous adolescents enslaved by heroin. To my left sat Mackenzie – our third recent heroin-related funeral. To my right sat Tyler who exclaimed 'You're the pizza guy!' I was confused. 'Remember when Paige and I were homeless – you washed our clothes and let us shower. You bought pizza while we talked about Jesus.' Tyler sobbed 'I have been clean fourteen months. That was the moment.'
Jake [Paige's current boyfriend] spoke during the eulogy. 'God was never my thing but Paige's bookmark fell out when I moved her Bible. It read 'Dear God – please help Jake find you.' I miss her so much.' Jake texted me back 'I would like that [to talk about Jesus]. We never met, but I know who you are. She talked about you. You guys going to church. Thank you for being there for her. Thank you for being her friend.' Please pray.
Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome! Keisha divulged prayer requests as we walked to her bus. A gentleman nearby pleaded 'Excuse me, sir. Please pray with me when you are done.' I soon returned to befriend Jack who was quite Biblically literate. But Jack was scourged by mental illness, methamphetamine abuse and profoundly distorted Identity. He knew absolutely the full Gospel Message but felt absolutely unworthy to receive it. I shared our True Identity imputed by Christ Jesus unto my brother to exorcise the blasphemy imparted by 'the father of lies'. I shared my personal testimony then prayed to be led by the Holy Spirit. I began fasting last week after I heard about Paige's death. Our flesh is weak but God's Presence felt exponential. I began to quote The Parable of the Lost Son. BOOM! The Holy Spirit poured down upon us to declare 'For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' My brother surrendered the millstones to receive Jesus Christ.
Jn 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome! I shared about Paige in both Quads. Every man pictured children who died from heroin overdose. A dozen names replete with innumerable tears were shared. DJ appeared startled then declared 'You found Paige on May 24th 2018. That's when I OD; that's when I was shot; that's when I died. I awoke to Gabrielle's face. She never left me but when she OD I was gone. I should have protected her; I am to blame.' I prayed to be led by the Holy Spirit then responded 'I understand your pain. You feel guilt that Gabrielle died; I feel guilt that Paige died. Their deaths were beyond our control but we wrestle with 'What If'. Their deaths demand our response though.' We spoke Truth and Love and Destiny unto our brother. The Holy Spirit enveloped us with peace.
Almost two years ago, I encountered a young, intoxicated heroin addict named Paige at the MOA Transit Center. Tonight, I reunited with a young, intoxicated methamphetamine addict named Megan upon that same bench. I shared gloves and granola bars to warm her; I shared The Bread of Life to save her. Beloved, share Jesus with God's child today. In Christ, Jason.
Ex 4:1-3 Moses answered, 'What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, The Lord did not appear to you?' Then the Lord said to him, 'What is that in your hand?' 'A staff,' he replied. The Lord said, 'Throw it on the ground.'
Lk 23:28-29 Jesus turned and said to them, 'Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. For the time will come when you will say, Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!'
Our children are dying. I need your help to share Christ with the lost.
Dt 24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.
