Close, But Still Outside - Mark 3:31-35 Post 2

I see them here
Standing outside
and my heart goes out to them
They've come, perhaps, a long way
to find You -

and here they are
outside the crowd that surrounds You

are they...
Chagrined?
Discouraged?
Disappointed?

or

Encouraged
to have found You at last...?

I don't know...
but...

I hope
if I had gotten this far - 
this close to You - 
I would have gone in myself
pushed and struggled my way through...
instead of sending someone else...
