If Jesus Came Today

I heard an interesting little meditation/poem today, quoted by Fr. Wade Menezes, C.P.M. in episode 7 of The Gospel of Life vs. The Culture of Death (you can listen here). After scouring the internet, I found the text here.

If Jesus Came Today...

Would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines, and put the Bibles where they'd been?

Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?

And I wonder...if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things you always do?

Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you go?
Or would you change your plans for just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have Him meet your closest friends?
Or would you hope they'd stay away until His visit ends?

Would you be glad to have Him stay forever, on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when, at last, He was gone?

It might be interesting to know the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person to spend some time with you.
