The Entry

The President, a boxer, a judge, movie stars, generals, brides, caskets, a store, homes all make a big deal about entry. The way a figure enters a place, arena, time and group of people sets the tone and sends powerful signals. 
The minute a person enters my office, I can usually tell if this is good news or bad news; by their posture, tone of voice, and facial expressions. We do that on the phone as well; picking up immediately if the person we are talking with is in a good place or highly stressed.
Jesus is the supreme "enterer" into human situations. I don't know that he carefully choreographed how he entered homes, conversations, or new towns, but the signals he sent non-verbally are always completely in harmony with what he says.
When people enter your space or when you enter theirs; is your intended message in sync with how you enter?
