Apparently one of the most photographed examples of street art in London. The random guy in the paint splattered jeans tells me it’s by an French artist, who came over two years ago. We talk. He makes me laugh. I make him laugh and I create a story in my head
He is the artist and he spins a new yarn every time someone comes and takes a picture of this work. He creates mystery and intrigue around it, whilst observing and studying the audience it pulls
And I wonder, who is the man on the door and how is he relevant to Mr Paint Splatter n’ Chat?
Sexy Stranger #16 Shad used to go camping with his cousins all the time. However, one Fourth of July, when he was 15, Shad accidentally shot a Roman candle at his older cousin Brantley. That side of his family hasn’t spoken to him since. Shad works a brewery now and smokes weed once a month. #sexy#sexystrangers#whoishe#beard#strangers#stranger#romancandle
Sexy Stranger #14 Mike had nowhere to be this Thursday and found himself winding up standing at bus stops all day trying to get to the library so he could get a book about capitalism he heard about on NPR. The buses in Minneapolis have let him down. #sexystrangers#sexy#mike#stranger#whoishe#bus#busstop

Daily Devotion: Who Is He?
The Bible in One Year: Psalms 23–25; Acts 21:18–40
Today's Bible Reading: Psalm 24
Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty—he is the King of glory. Psalm 24:10
On our way home from our honeymoon, my husband and I waited to check in our luggage at the airport. I nudged him and pointed to a man standing a few feet away.
My spouse squinted. “Who is he?”
I excitedly rattled off the actor’s most notable roles, then walked up and asked him to take a photo with us. Twenty-four years later, I still enjoy sharing the story of the day I met a movie star.
Recognizing a famous actor is one thing, but there’s Someone more important I’m thankful to know personally. “Who is this King of glory?” (Psalm 24:8). The psalmist David points to the Lord Almighty as Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all. He sings, “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters” (vv. 1–2). In awestruck wonder, David proclaims God is above all, yet intimately approachable (vv. 3–4). We can know Him, be empowered by Him, and trust Him to fight on our behalf, as we live for Him (v. 8).
God provides opportunities for us to declare Him as the only Famous One truly worth sharing with others. As we reflect His character, those who don’t recognize Him can have more reasons to ask, “Who is He?” Like David, we can point to the Lord with awestruck wonder and tell His story!
What has the Lord shown you about Himself? How might you share that with someone?
Lord, thanks for blessing us with the pleasure and privilege of seeking You and giving us opportunities to share You with others every day.
