If Jesus was walking through your town would you wave at Him? Would you give Him a shout? The most appropriate thing we could do would be fall at His feet and plead for mercy.
It is said that familiarity can breed contempt. Perhaps this has happened to you where Jesus is concerned.
Do we think that we can relate to Him without acknowledging our sins? Are we so off base as to think we can continue sinning while we deal with Him?
Jesus came to redeem us from our sinfulness. We must turn away from our selfishness.
Are you often angry? Do you harbor resentment against others? Are you jealous of their good fortune? If these things are true, how then do you think Jesus will regard you when He passes by?
Confess your sins and acknowledge His forgiving power. Make restitution with your life to Him and to others. Jesus of Nazareth has passed our way and we do not want it to have been in vain where our behavior is concerned. Let His passing have made a mark on your life. Let repentance be your lifestyle.
